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.”

Important Safety Guidelines

*Consult your health practitioner if you have any concerns.

*Use common sense and wash your hands and preparation area prior to making or handling your Kombucha – best if you use filtered water as chlorine from tap water may be harmful to the bacteria in your culture.

*Do NOT brew in ceramic (unless certified food grade), lead crystal or metal (other than stainless steel) as it will leach toxins into your Kombucha which could cause you physical harm. Food grade plastic is acceptable, but I don’t recommend it.

*Beginning the consumption of Kombucha while pregnant or nursing is not recommended.


Why should I drink Kombucha?

Drinking Kombucha promotes better health by detoxifying and improving the efficiency of your digestive system which boosts immunity.  All fermented foods are good for you in this regard – let your palate help you decide which ones are a good fit for you!

How much Kombucha should I drink?

It is recommended to begin drinking 4-8oz on an empty stomach 2x a day followed by plenty of water to flush the toxins. Over time, you can increase your intake as your body craves it.

What is a SCOBY?

Bacteria &

It is also referred to as a culture, mother, and baby.

Is Kombucha a mushroom?

Though yeast are technically fungi, Kombucha is not mycelia (what we traditionally think of as mushrooms).  It is a near-lichen.

Is Kombucha hard to make?

No!  If you can make a cup of tea, you can make Kombucha.  Water, tea, sugar, & Kombucha starter is all you need!

Why do I need so much sugar?  Can I use anything else?

The sugar isn’t for you!!  Sugar is the easiest food for the culture to ferment.  You can use molasses, honey (not raw!), agave, etc.  You CANNOT use Raw Honey (it has its own host of bacteria that could adversely affect your culture), Stevia or Xylitol (these are plant based sugars that do not ferment – you will end up with mold).  I think I need to write a post about this (check back for the link!)

Can I use herbal tea?

No.  The Kombucha culture requires camellia sinesis, (green tea, black tea, white tea) the tea plant.  Herbal teas are often made with essential oils that will adversely affect your culture.

Will my Kombucha be alcoholic?

The recent voluntary recall has sparked concern over Kombucha’s alcohol levels.  When you brew yours at home, your primary fermentation (pre-flavors) will be less than .5%.  Should you decide to add flavors, it could jump that number up as the naturally occurring sugars reactivate the yeast, causing more alcohol to be created.  To test your ABV – alcohol by volume – you can purchase a hydrometer at your local brewing supply store.

What do I do if I get mold?

Throw everything away.  Do not pass Go.  Do not collect $200. Start over with a back up culture from your SCOBY Hotel.
