Upcoming Kombucha Demonstration and Potluck

Join Kombucha Fuel, Slow Food BU, Boston Localvores, and The Urban Homesteaders' League for a potluck and demo on how to brew the fermented tea kombucha!

What: Kombucha Demonstration and Potluck
When: Wednesday, March 24
, 7-8:30 pmWhere: Sargent College, BU, Room 300 (635 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA 02215)Cost: Free
Open to the public

This workshop will include a potluck, so bring a dish if you can, and remember to bring your own plate and utensils so we can reduce our waste.

 Traced back to Chinese origins to around 220 B.C., numerous health promoting and detoxifying effects have been attributed to kombucha, also referred to as the "elixir of life." While kombucha often costs $3+ a bottle, it is very inexpensive and easy to brew your own!

I will demonstrate and explain the basics of brewing and bottling kombucha. Topics to be covered include required materials, the traditional and continuous brewing methods, how to grow your own kombucha mushroom, and more.

Samples of home brewed kombucha tea will be available to taste (look forward to raspberry jasmine kombucha tea, ginger darjeeling kombucha tea, and more). SCOBYs will also be available for individuals to take home. For those interested in adopting a kombucha mushroom, bringing a clean, glass pint jar would help to facilitate distribution.

For those of you who already brew kombucha, consider bringing any extra kombucha mothers you have to spare, or bringing your own kombucha so we can do a taste comparison!

Hello! I'd love to come to this but I'm afraid I can't make it. I'm ready to start brewing my own kombucha and I'd love it if I could somehow meet you at another time in order to adopt a culture. If this is a possibility (or not) please email me at nicolemo3@gmail.com. Thanks!
