Kombucha brewing kits are perfect gifts.
This kit is designed to be given as a gift (or if you are not planning on starting your brew for some time) and includes a DEHYDRATED mother scoby rather than a live fresh scoby. We dehydrate our scobies in house to ensure that they are dehydrated carefully and retain all their bacteria. The scoby will need to be activated BEFORE you can begin brewing but the kit is perfect to give as a gift as it requires no special storage before use and the Scoby can survive for up to 12 months.
