Kombucha Tea Starter Culture
Product Review (submitted on February 9, 2014):
I am a newbie at making Kombucha and just finished making my 2nd batch. Quite please with the results, as I have been drinking about 12 oz daily. I purchased a 2.5 gal container with a spout for draining which is one thing that has made the process easier; plus, I'm now considering continuously brewing this great drink. I had a plastic electrical seed germination pad that I wrapped around the container and then wrapped that with a small blanket and tied everything together on the outside of the container because the room I keep the container in is quite cool during the day, as I turn down the heat in the house to 65 while I'm at work. The container stays nice and toasty and ferments the tea in 7 days. I'd like to go a little longer to obtain the good detox stuff, but am concerned the brew will be too vinegar tasting, so haven't done this yet. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the culture and the whole process. The key is the temperature.
