Welcome to Kombucha Journal

We are passionate about the art and science of home brewing kombucha. Kombucha is a delicious probiotic beverage with numerous health benefits (based on anecdotal evidence).

It is also easy to brew if you are someone who is familiar with basic food preparation and sanitation. Plus, kombucha can be created with an infinite number of flavors, which makes it a very creative and sometimes surprising adventure.

You can do it

Home brewing kombucha is a little different from other kinds of cooking because kombucha is a fermented beverage and is created by an amazing and somewhat peculiar organism called a SCOBY, which is an acronym for “Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast.”

However, with a little bit of knowledge and a little effort, we believe that anyone can brew their own kombucha in their home and have an unlimited supply of this truly yummy beverage.

We’ll show you how

This web site aims to provide the first time home brewer with a complete set of instructions so that you can begin your own adventure into the home brewing of this priobiotic treat for yourself, your family and your friends.

We will provide everything that you need to know as well as explain where you can find the small amount of equipment and supplies that you need to begin brewing kombucha.
