About the Reviews

This is THE book for all your brewing questions! It is a work of art visually, and the information is the best I have seen anywhere. I really appreciate that, while this is authored by the owners of "Kombucha Kamp", they do not push their products in any way. There is a complete history of kombucha, and tons of recipes, which I would never have dreamed of on my own. I am pretty new to brewing my own (but it was a necessity when between my, my husband and our daughter we drink at least 3 bottles a day-at $3 or more a bottle, YIKES!), and this has been a godsend. I have turned 4 of my friends (so far) on to home brewing, and 3 of them have bought this book on my recommendation. Don't hesitate, this is a MUST if you are a kombucha fanaitic!

*********************************

Wow! Fantastic book with great knowledge. Read it in two days. On first day order my SCOBY. One thing missing from the book is best place to buy it, I found it though. The author grows and sells them. Just google and you will find it easy. I bought it and made my booch w ease. First flavors I did were strawberry lemonade, blueberry lemonade and cherry lemonade. Just bottled 6 and got new brew going. Worth every penny. Thank you thank you thank you.

Hannah Crum changed my life. I bought my first Kombucha home brew 'starter kit' from her over four years ago and have been happily brewing my own 'booch ever since. This big (383 page), bold and beautiful book is full of a wealth of first-hand information on all aspects of Kombucha that Hannah and her partner Alex LaGory have curated over their years of involvement with the Kombucha sub-culture.

From the history and science of Kombucha to straightforward guidelines on the many aspects of brewing, decanting and flavoring this healthful fermented tea, Hannah and Alex cram an awful lot of really useful information into this book. I was especially impressed with the full color photographs of typical brews (taken of clear glass jars to show the yeast strands, fermentation process and various colors of healthy and unhealthy SCOBY's). There's ample information on troubleshooting everything from mold to poorly performing brews, as well as scientific guidelines on brew temperature, acidity, sweetness and suggested tea mixes.

The second part of the book offers a huge range of recipes for flavoring, cocktails, smoothies and more, She even suggests intriguing ways to consume old growth SCOBYs (jerky, face masks etc.)

This is the book I wish I'd had four years ago. I intend to take a close look at my current hit and miss production methods and implement their suggestions to improve things.

If you love Kombucha and are getting tired of paying $3-6 a bottle for the retail brands, invest in a copy of Hannah and Alex's book and get brewing at home. It just might change your life.
