After making their own kombucha for decades, Jessica and Eric Childs launched Kombucha Brooklyn (KBBK) in 2009 with three flavors of kombucha available in 16-oz bottles at a handful of stores in Brooklyn. Now, Jessica and Eric are making it easy for people to brew their own kombucha at home.
Hand-built in Brooklyn using the finest organic and fair-trade ingredients, KBBK Home Brew Kombucha Kits come with everything you need to get started, including the live culture known as the "SCOBY" which stands for a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast. In the words of our testers, the SCOBY looks a bit “icky,” but it’s a gift that keeps on giving. Every time you brew a batch of kombucha, you’ll grow a new culture, which means you can then create two more batches—or give a SCOBY to a friend so they can get started brewing, too. As long as you keep the culture alive, you can keep making more kombucha. Add a dash of lemon juice, fresh ginger, or experiment with other flavors to create one tasty batch after another.
