Kombucha 101: How to Make Your Own Kombucha Scoby

kombucha scoby

I was lucky enough to get my SCOBY sent to me in the mail. Yep that’s a thing. I didn’t even know it was possible to send SCOBY’s. I thought they’d be extremely breakable goods and the slightest bump would disturb their probiotic peace – kind of like freshly brewed yoghurt. But it turns out there are a lot of people shipping them throughout Australia and the world at any given time. 

But its just as easy to make your own. Maybe just a tad slower.

To get up to date on kombucha and how to make kombucha from scratch, read this post.

  • I don’t want to make my own SCOBY where can I buy one?
    Ask a friend if you know someone brewing, its likely they have a heap spare.  There are quite a few online shops to buy from, try  The Whole Daily, Love Ur Belly, Pink Farm, Nourish Me Organics, The Good Brew.
  • What else can I do with kombucha besides drink it? 
    You can use your kombucha in any way you would normal vinegar. Cleaning, salad dressing, as a hair tonic after shampoo. There are so many more uses, get googling.
