    Plastic Strainer


    "Love it!"

    I've used my plastic mesh strainer nearly every day for about 2 months, with no sign of wear and tear. It is very fine and is perfect for straining kefir grains. I need more, though, since I'll be straining my first batch of kombucha soon! Wish me luck!

    - Grantiss

    "Plastic Strainer"

    Love these strainer. I've even bought some for gifting to others as there a must to have.

    - Lily

    "Great product, perfect for Kefir"

    We have been making kefir for about 2 months now - and two indispensable items are a funnel and these strainers. At first the smaller strainer did the job, but as the grains have grown and our production has increased, the larger size is preferable and works perfectly with a funnel. Can't go wrong!

    - Emma

    "Great Strainer, could be larger"

    The strainer works great and is very durable. For making milk Keefer, which can get some thickness, it would be better to have a larger strainer, I could use one at least twice as big or about the size of a typical kitchen strainer.

    - garberark

    "love it"

    So glad to have this strainer. It is difficult to find a fine mesh plastic strainer, this is so useful.

    "Nice appearace. All that picture depicts of product."

    Pleased with timely delivery of product. Exactly as advertised but have not had a chance to make my first batch of Kombucha. Looks like a good system.

    - CW

    "Pretty! "

    I have not yet had a chance to make kombucha in this because I'm still working on activating my dehydrated SCOBY, but I believe it will be perfect once I start brewing large batches. It also looks great on the set of shelves that I painted and placed against a wall in my kitchen to use specifically for ferments while organizing and displaying associated products and bottles I purchased at Cultures for Health. I love the spout and hope it will come in handy when we have company!

    - Rebecca

    "I love this product. "

    It made me much less nervous using this for my first batch of Kombucha. Appreciated the recipes and extra info that came with it. The Kombucha turned out great!

    These test strips been have been extremely helpful in calibrating my taste buds to my kombucha so it's not too sweet and not too sour.

    "Really not worth it. "

    I was really disappointed with this purchase. The quality of the product was not good. It leaks and it’s difficult to clean. Even straight out of the box it seemed dirty. Not of any use for me size wise either. The photo makes it look bigger Response from CFH: We are so terribly sorry! Please contact our customer support team so we can assist you, as this definitely appears to be defective.

    - Kim


    Nice idea, and quite attractive. BUT, water gets between the white plastic and the glass. The same with the fermenting crock. I just wonder how long before it gets moldy.

    "Love the Grolsch flip-top bottles"

    I love having these bottles to store my water kefir in.

    - Summerrain

    "Excellent Bottles...They Work So Well!!!"

    I rec'd my 12 lovely bottles today and I simply adore them!!! They are going to make bottling my water kefir and kombucha so much easier now (and they are so pretty!!!!)! I've already sanitized them and filled 6 of them with my latest batch of water kefir and 2 of them with my latest available kombucha that is ready. I've placed all 8 bottles in the fridge (since the beverages already went through their secondary fermentation in other bottles before my new, pretty Grolsch bottles arrived). I'm making a new batch of kombucha tonight in my continuous brewer and am looking forward to using my new Grolsch bottles for my kombucha secondary fermentation next week! In Brewing Heaven!!!! I highly recommend these bottles! :)

    - Patti

    "very nice"

    I received the bottles and they are solid and quality items. I had a bit of trouble at first putting on the tops. I had to figure it out and was stiff, but now after using them for a bit, they are fine. They keep the kombucha air-tight. I do have one question since we don't have a dishwasher, what is the best way to get them clean after use? CFH Note~ To clean the bottles, hand wash using a bottle brush like this: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/bottle-brush.html. To remove stubborn debris, fill the bottle with warm water and a splash of vinegar and allow it to sit. Discard the liquid and fill the bottle 1/4 with water and a handful of uncooked rice and shake vigorously and rinse very thoroughly.

    - Donna

    "Excellent Bottles!"

    Good quality and very strong. I used this product for making my first batch of Kombucha. Have not had a problem. Very secure when fermenting! I am glad I found them. Definitely worth the price!

    - Nita

    "Great flip top bottles"

    The bottles arrived in great condition. I can't wait to make some water kefir to bottle!

    - Sheri

    "Great Bottles"

    These are great reusable bottles for kombucha and they go there quickly.

    Bottle Brush


    "What I was looking for"

    Nice brush, but I didn't like that it was bent in half to fit in the box it was sent in. Response from Cultures for Health: We are so terribly sorry! Please contact Customer Support any time there is something wrong with your order. We are happy to help!

    - Lisa


    Fits in the narrow neck of flip top bottles and has long handel

    - Brf

    "Just what I needed"

    The listing doesn't specify but the brush is approximately 18" long and 2.5" in diameter. It's a serious brush with a thin handle and tip that's perfect for kefir bottles. This was exactly the bottle brush I was looking for. It was a little surprising to have the brush come bent in half inside the shipping box but it reshaped with a little effort. The brush is so sturdy it didn't effect long term use or appearance at all.

    - janasjots

    "Great Products, Not-So-Great Packaging"

    This bottle brush is really sturdy and well-made but, when I received it, the handle had been bent in half to fit into the shipping box. I was able to straighten it out pretty well and it doesn't have to be perfect since it's utilitarian but I was disappointed when I first saw it looking damaged.

    - CP


    Wow because I can't believe I am writing a review of a bottle brush that cost $2. And wow because I can't believe how good this thing works. It fits easily into narrow bottles and big bottles equally well. The long handle makes it easy to maneuver to ensure a good clean. Yes the handle came folded in the box as everyone says but it's wire and you can just bend it back into place--no big deal. My old bottle brush was double this price and more solid..to the point where I had to shove it into the bottle tops if I was lucky to fit it. This brush is great. So yes, I highly recommend this product.

    - M


    Exactly what I was looking for. I used it to clean recycled kombucha bottles as well as bottles with a tight neck and it works very well. As other reviewers said, it came folded but I was expecting that and it hasnt affected its purpose.

    "Excellent Product...High Quality"

    Rec'd my bottle tops today and am very pleased with them. I just feel better having an extra bag of these around when the time comes to replace a top when I'm bottling my water kefir and kombucha. These work great and are a high quality product. Highly recommend!

    - Patti


    These tops fit perfectly on my bottles. The plugs and washers are plastic, not porcelain and rubber, but they do the trick.

    - davidsamish

    "Don't seem to fit "

    I ordered these so I'd have extras on hand if I need them, but so far they haven't fit any of my bottles because the wires are too long for them to close properly.

    Stick-On Thermometer Strip


    "Awesome Little Helper!"

    My house is not very well climate controlled since it is over 100 years old and not modernized! This stick on thermometer allows me to monitor my fermenting foods at a glance. The price is right too! I will be ordering more.

    - Dianna

    "Convenient, accurate & CAN be reused"

    This little thermometer is accurate (also put a "regular" thermometer next to the glass jar just to test it) and can be reused if you use a removeable clear tape on the top and bottom of the tape (leave the self stick backing on). I found it very helpful and it didn't keep falling over like the test thermometer.

    - Carol

    "great product"

    These work great for my kombucha and water kefir!

    - ela

    "Very handy! "

    Perfect little helper and easy for my seven year-old to use when he helps make batches of our "soda." Unfortunately, I lost my first one and had to replace it, but fortunately it's very inexpensive. Very handy!

    - Rebecca


    A tad small to read but not bad at all.

    "Basic it is"

    There is nothing fancy, just a "Basic Thermometer." If you don't need accuracy or long reach it will do a fine job.

    - Chugchug


    The thermometer works but disagrees with my other thermometers. I have two others that show to add starter at a lower temperature. I don't know which is most accurate. Also, the round top dial is very small and hard to read. Response from CFH: Thermometers can be calibrated. Please contact Customer Support for advice or for replacements for defective products.

    - krayola

    "Easier than what I was using."

    When I decided to make my own yogurt, I was using a candy thermometer -- something I already had. This is much easier to position and read.

    - BuckIrose


    I ordered the basic thermometer, but it turned out to be a mini thermometer. Very tiny and dials are hard to read! Response from CFH: The details section note this thermometer has a 1-inch dial display and is 5 inches long.

  • Waterproof Digital Thermometer

    "much needed this"

    New at baking bread. I now realize we pulled out many loaves not quite done. The taping and getting a hollow sound did not always work for me. This little thermometer does the trick. Now I am prretty good at guessing when the bread is done. This gadget lets me know exactly when done.

    - Gert24

    "Easy to read"

    Really glad I purchased this item

    - Evelyn

    "Reliable and easy to read"

    I use it for making yogurt, and feta cheese. I use it to be sure my hand feeding formula is the right temperature for baby parrots. Easy to read and very reliable.

    - Julia

    "waterproof digital thermometer"

    works fast and easy to read

    - Mike

    "Good quality"

    I ordered this thermometer because I had a coupon. This is my first digital thermometer. I like it because it is waterproof. I use it to make yogurt and kefir. In the past, I have bought Taylor brand standard thermometers and found them to be good quality. I'm expecting this one to hold up well also.

    - Sarah

    "Very good quality"

    My sister gave me this thermometer, which she had originally purchased for culinary school, about 3 or 4 years ago. It gets regular use and has stood up to quite a bit of abuse. Very reliable and quick to indicate temperature changes. I have used it for everything from roast chicken, to Swiss meringue, to yogurt making. Should mine ever brake (and it shows no signs of doing so anytime soon) I would not hesitate to buy the same model again. Highly recommended.

    • Use it for: brewing 1 cup up to a half-gallon of tea

    Mesh Tea Ball Infuser - 2 inch


    "Excellent product"

    So far no breaks in the seal, I am not a tea leak reader so I like them to stay in the infuser. Thank you

    - Steve

    "Perfect! Only sorry I didn't order a second one...."

    It came in exactly as described, expected... price point is fair. And it looks like it'll hold up. Exactly what I wanted. Only problem is I only ordered one and my husband keeps stealing mine!!! :)

    - jazzy

    "Just as ordered"

    Shipped quickly and received on time. Just what I ordered and happy as a little lark!!

    - Johnny

    "Great product"

    Wanted to use loose tea for my Kombucha and this product does the trick!

    - Terri

    "Smaller than expected from photo"

    My fault. I didn't read that this is a 2 oz tea ball. I looked at the accompanying photo in which it looks like a 4 oz ball at least. I wanted to use it for my kombucha, but it's too small. Disappointed with myself for not reading and disappointed with the product listing because the photo makes it look larger than it is.

    - Ellie


    The product looks and works just like it said it would.

    - Alissa

  • Mesh Tea Ball Infuser - 3 inch

    Steep loose leaf tea for kombucha batches up to a gallon with this stainless steel infuser.
    • Use it for: brewing up to a gallon of tea

    Mesh Tea Ball Infuser - 3 inch


    "I love these things as I drink green tea every morning."

    Love these tea balls. I wish y'all did have one to make kombacha as metal is not good to use when making tea for kombacha, right?? Response from CFH: Preparing the tea with stainless steel is acceptable. It is the SCOBY itself that cannot be in contact with metal.

    - Blue Papaya Girl

    "It works"

    I'm pleased with this product.

    - sawalt


    I was surprised that the mesh was not just a bit finer as the holes still allow a fair amount of tea leaves to sift through. This means you still need a strainer with finer holes if you don't want tea particles left after brewing. (So glad I also ordered the plastic mesh strainer which works great for this!)

    - Beth

  • Mesh Tea Ball Infuser - 4 inch

    For the serious kombucha brewer, this stainless steel infuser fits enough tea for batches larger than a gallon.
    • Use it for: brewing more than a gallon of tea

    "glad I found this"

    I had been using cheese cloth for my loose leaf tea's, NO MORE, time save, no mess, great value.

    - doranu77

    "Great Product"

    This is well worth the money and is of great quality.

    - Brooke

    "Don’t buy this"

    I don’t like leaving poor reviews, but The mesh on this ball is much to wide for loose tea, many particle fall right through.

    • Use it for: learning more about kombucha

    Kombucha Rediscovered


    "good book"

    good book for starters. Full of facts and interesting.

    - FermentMe

    "Was sorry I spent my time and money on this."

    As I had enjoyed Klaus Kaufmann's book "Making Sauerkraut" I tried this one on Kombucha. I found the content of this book is very limited and simplistic rather than thorough and researched. The directions for making Kombucha likewise are very limited. I couldn't pass this book on to any friends I was so dissapointed with it. It got recycled. There are a lot of quotes to Gunter W. Frank's work on Kombucha so I purchased that book (149 pages) and was very pleased and much educated.

    - tapergirl

    "An empty book"

    I read this book hoping to find some serious facts of the origin and the brewing of the kombucha culture, instead this book left me with a disappointing feeling. The author didn't really research the subject to find its origins and real use in ancient times. He only told me people's vague accounts of what they suppose it does. It almost felt like he was mocking people that are conscious and want to stay away from Walmart's processed white sugar and non organic "Orange Peeko.......... tea". There are so many recipes that you can do and combinations that I never heard. Herbal teas can also be used to enhance their healing properties. But I learned how many thousand of names he could find that people have given it. Not much of a "rediscovery". Absolutely no substance and no valid information in it.

    - Beatriz

    "Silly book"

    Empty. Insulting to my intelligence. Misleading. Typical health food deception literature. Lots of suggestions for benefit without one shred of proof.
