Kombucha is a delicious fermented tea beverage that’s been sweeping the nation for years now. Making kombucha is easy! In this session, we’ll cover basic techniques and give you an understanding of why and how this fermentation process works. We’ll also talk about bottling, flavoring, fizz and the best way to make your kombucha taste the way you want it to taste! We’ll discuss how to best care for your kombucha culture (SCOBY), problems you may encounter along the way and how to deal with them and we’ll debunk some myths about what this mystical brew really “does.”
This class will cover:
•Myths about kombucha and health
•Single batch brew
Everyone will go home with a SCOBY, kombucha to ferment at home, a bottle of flavored kombucha on which to do secondary fermentation at home and a fine mesh strainer.
Milk kefir is the tangy, drinkable, hyper-probiotic cousin of yogurt, and making it couldn't be easier. In this demo, you'll learn best practices, some of the amazing science behind the kefir "grains" culture (which aren't grains at all) and observe some of the fun and funky ways to eat your probiotics with virtually no effort and a budget that needs cover only milk and a jar.
We desire to have a successful class for our participants and the presenter. Any cancellations of class enrollments prior to 10/13/18 will be subject to a 15% fee. Cancellations after 10/13/18 will be non-refundable.
