What people say

Kelsey of Brentwood, CA

...on Water Kefir Grains

“Love that these come fresh and not dried, so I can make kefir right away!”

Jen J. of Fergus Falls, MN

... on the USA Made Stoneware Complete Package

“I love this brewer! It is a beautiful addition to our kitchen, and it makes continuous brewing a snap! We are having a fun adventure brewing Kombucha ourselves, the only problem is keeping our little people out of it until it is ready (a problem I am happy to live with).”

Patience C. from Rhode Island

... on the Kickstarter Kombucha Kit from KKamp

“The kit was great… the scobys where very thick and healthy looking. Everything I needed to get brewing (except the vessel)… the support from Kombucha Kamp is fantastic, as is the forums on KomMunity. I was extremely happy with the kit.”

Rita P. from Minnesota

... on The Brew Now Kit

“The service is excellent, the SCOBY and starter tea made the best kombucha, and Hannah’s special tea blend is delicious.”

Edie from Charleston, SC

... on KKamp's Full Sized Kombucha Culture

“I am so happy to have found Kombucha Kamp. My SCOBY arrived super fast, and I love that it was a fresh one and I didn’t have to spend weeks rehydrating it.”

Bert Seager

... on Continuous Brew

“If you are thinking about brewing your own Kombucha – you need look no farther than this web site – and store. I live in Boston MA as far away from Hannah, the Kombucha Mamma, as you can get in the USA – yet I felt her support every step of the way.”

Jane Park

... on Continuous Brew

“I love seeing my CB kit…makes me feel like I am consciously caring for myself, which I am more convinced now than ever before that women need to do more of. My first batch was really simple, mostly due to really simply laid forth instructions.”

Alysia McDonough

... on Continuous Brew

“I love this continuous kombucha brewer. It is beyond awesome. All you have to do is make the tea and add it to the container and decant from the spigot and repeat. I don’t think it can get any easier.Also everyone loves my kombucha better than the store bought kind.”

Julie Akerman

... on Continuous Brew

“When I first started continuous brewing I was very nervous…but after getting the hang of it..I LOVE IT!!! I love that your brew is always ready to either drink right out of the spigot or to flavor for the second brewing process. The crock is beautiful sitting in my kitchen and there is virtually NO MESS!!!”

Sally Fallon

... on Continuous Brew

“I am set up with your continuous brew jug and making Kombucha again after many years. How much easier than the old method! Thanks for paving the way to getting us all making Kombucha in our kitchens again.”

Hello Kombucha aficionados!

Welcome to Kombucha Kamp.

Hannah Crum, The Kombucha Mamma, pours a kombucha brew into a pitcher at Leaf OrganicsI’m Hannah Crum, The Kombucha Mamma. Since 2004 I have been brewing Kombucha and educating others about its benefits. What began as hobby has evolved into my passion and lifestyle. From homebrew hobbiest, to educator, to Master Brewer, I have grown my business organically as my experience has deepened. I am committed to providing the most accurate and up-to-date information to Kombucha lovers and homebrewers at any stage in their experience.

I have taught Kombucha making classes to all size groups, from individuals to workshops of 100+, all over the country for nearly 8 years, often in conjunction with wonderful organizations such as The Weston A. Price Foundation, The Real Food Festivals, Project Butterfly, Fun with Fermentation and the Santa Monica Co-Opportunity Speaker Series. My how-to videos have piled up +100,000’s of views and Kombucha Kamp was featured on “What’s Brewing?” hosted by Jody Rudman on the Veria Network.

In addition to teaching, I install large-scale Kombucha set-ups and am the Master Brewer for numerous restaurants and shops in the Los Angeles area, including Leaf Organics in Culver City and Fresh Bites in West Hollywood. My husband and I write about the Kombucha business for BevNet.com and Beverage Spectrum Magazine and other publications featuring our work include Elephant Journal and Vital Juice.

HOW I DISCOVERED KOMBUCHA – OR HOW IT FOUND ME!

A Large Jalisco of Kombucha brewed by Hannah Crum of Kombucha KampI first discovered Kombucha while visiting a friend from college in San Francisco.  His girlfriend showed me her mysterious jars and I was instantly intrigued.  Upon returning to Los Angeles, I sought out Kombucha at my local Whole Foods market. There weren’t many brands to choose from, so I grabbed a  GT’s Synergy Gingerade and gave it a try. The carbonation was super bubbly, the ginger was fresh and delicious, the flavor was both sweet and tart – Wow!  This is delicious! Kombucha instantly resonated with me, but it quickly became an expensive habit – what to do? Ah!  I just need to get some mysterious jars!

I scoured the internet and local library for information and located my first culture. I was happy to brew Kombucha at home and occasionally I would pass along a culture to a friend and teach them how to make it. I have always been a teacher and this was empowering to me and the people I taught. There was a spark there. Then I attended an Artists’ Way Workshop. The secret that I uncovered was a desire to teach others about Kombucha, not only in person but all over the world as well. You are now enjoying the fruits of my labor.
