Brewing Kombucha

  • Canberra Environment Centre (map)

If you’re feeling a little heavy in your belly, you could be missing all of the wonderful probiotics that kombucha can provide!Healthy, fun, simple and inexpensive to make, a batch of home-brewed kombucha is a fantastic way to introduce beneficial gut bacteria to your body.

Join Jane McIntyre, a nutritionist with a keen interest in the role of nutrition in the development of chronic disease, for an evening of discussing all things kombucha, lacto fermentation and gut health.

This workshop also includes samples and a starter kombucha culture (aka SCOBY).

Please bring along a jar of sweet cold tea, brewed according to these instructions:

  • 500ml water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (white or raw is fine)
  • 1/2 tbs loose leaf black, green or white tea (as long as there are no flavours or oils) or 2 teabags

Boil water, add to a non-metallic bowl or jug and add sugar and tea. Stir until sugar is dissolved and let steep until room temperature. Bring the tea along to the workshop in a lidded jar or container. Note, also you can make smaller quantities of sweet tea using the same ratio.
