Making kombucha for the first time was like a revelation. I felt like a master of the universe, but in this case it was just a gallon-sized jar of fermented tea. There were some things about the process that were a little bit gross — like handling the SCOBY for the first time, or filtering out strings of dead yeast that looked suspiciously like loogies. But when I sat down to drink my first glass of homemade apple-jasmine kombucha, I was in love. Kombucha became my family’s beverage of choice for breakfast and lunch. Only at dinner did we indulge in a glass of raw milk from grass-fed cows.
This week, I’m giving away the Ultimate Kombucha Making Kit (a $50 value!), courtesy of one of my sponsors, Julie from Cultures for Health. You’ll win everything you need to get yourself started brewing kombucha.
The kit includes:
- Plastic Strainer
- 4 Flip-top Bottles
- 8 oz. Oolong Tea
- Set of pH Strips
The only missing ingredients are sugar to feed your starter, and a large, gallon-sized glass container for the ferment (you can pick these up at any Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Target, Wal-Mart, etc. for just $5).
