Funny shaped scobies

Regular price £6.95 Sale price £7.95 Unit price per

These cultures are simply not round, they will brew the same quality kombucha in the same way as our standard scobies they just not round. That is all they are just a different shape. The actual shape of the scoby plays no factor in how it brews so these scobies will brew and grow babies in exactly the same way as the round scoby's.
This scoby is large and powerful and will enable you to easily and safely brew up to 2L per brew. Our scobies are the biggest and best on the market and we are the market leader in providing live cultures.
All of Kombucha Cultures are:
  • Grown in Soil association Certified ingredients, which are GMO free.
  • UKAS Lab tested 
  • We guarantee that your culture will work (and will brew up to 2L) 
  • Lifetime supply of Culture- If you take care of your scoby you will never need to purchase one again. Your brew will grow a baby every time you use it. 
  • We are a food registered company 
  • All of our food handlers hold at least level 2 food hygiene certificates
  • We have a full food safety programme in place (Haccp plan)
  • Daily Ph tests are carried out on our cultures
  • All live cultures are ready to to ferment as soon as they arrive
  • All cultures are picked and packed to order daily
  • All packaging is food grade and heat sealed
  • Full paper instructions are provided with every culture (not just online) but we also provide access to our online instructions and tutorial videos and youtube channel
  • Full customer support- We are here to help and for as long as you need us. When you buy one of our cultures one of our Culture experts is available to via email or telephone or in person to help you with your brew. You can come back to us at any point for help. We will do everything we can to help you happily make wonderful Kombucha.

    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!).

    After fermentation, kombucha becomes carbonated and contains vinegar, B vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and a high concentration of acid (acetic, gluconic and lactic).

    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.

    And now research suggests that probiotics could have benefits that extend beyond the gut, such as treating illnesses from type-1 diabetes to fibromyalgia. 

    There is also interest in preliminary research suggesting that probiotics might even be able to enhance weight loss. 

    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!).

    If you need any further information please feel free to contact us and one of our team will be very happy to help.

    Packaging:

    As we sell a lot of glass and fragile items we do have to use a great deal of packaging. We do try to keep it to a minimum BUT we would rather your item arrived in one piece than be mean with the packaging.

    Boxes-Our boxes are made from recycled cardboard and can be recycled

    Bubblewrap- This is Biodegradable

    Packing peanut-These are biodegradable

    Culture Packaging-Plastic but it can be recycled*

    If you purchase an item that we have not physically made (ie from Kilner or Kefirko) we cannot guarantee the internal packaging is plastic free but we do encourage our suppliers to use as little plastic as possible.   

    *all culture packaging has been audited and passes Organic standards.

    Glassware
    Please note that we don't ship glass bottles and demijohns or porcelain Crocks overseas unless you are happy to accept responsibility for any breakages. By ordering glassware/crocks you are accepting responsibility.

    If you are ordering kefir for international delivery please order dehydrated grains or select a courier delivery rather than international post. This is because we have no control over delivery times with international post. With Most EU countries (outside of this dehydrated grains are a must) international post is generally not an issue as the grains can survive for around 15 days and most deliveries are made in this time however the delivery estimate is just an estimate and as their are so many factors out of our control we cannot guarantee the survival of live grains. We strongly encourage customers to choose the courier option for live cultures. We can only guarantee the dehydrated grains. Whilst this is not something that is generally problematic order live grains at your own risk.
