This scoby is large and powerful and will enable you to easily and safely brew. Our scobies are the biggest and best on the market and we are the market leader in providing live cultures and have been for over a decade.
Whilst there will always be some variations of size as scobies are a natural product on average our Large scobies are 16cm in diameter and at least 1.5cm thick. Our standards scobies are 10cm in diameter and at least 1cm thick. Our Continuous Brewing Pack contains two of our Large scobies.
Kombucha is similar to Kefir in that it creates a probiotic drink and reproduces itself in a similar manner. Many people call Kombucha a fungus or mushroom however it is not. It is classed as a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of Bacteria and Yeasts) and it lives on sugary tea.
With every brew a new baby is formed so if well cared for your Scoby will give you Kombucha for life.
Kombucha has a distinct crisp/tarte/slightly sour flavour to it and this flavour can be altered and adjusted by altering the brewing time and the ingredients used. A shorter brewing time makes a sparkling, crisp and fruity tea drink while a longer brew time makes a drink similar to apple cider vinegar (but loaded with goodness!).
Unlike kefir grains that need to be changed everyday Kombucha only needs to be changed every 5-30 days (depending on taste and brewing conditions)
Science has come to accept there is some truth in the enthusiastic claims made for probiotics that they help fight 'bad' bugs in your gut and improve intestinal health.
KOMBUCHA IS A PROBIOTIC
Again unlike other sellers we are not going to give you a long list of unproven and possibly misleading health claims, if you are reading this then you already know how good Kombucha is for you (if not, feel free to google it you really will be amazed!).
