I've been buying your kombucha on tap for several months and decided it's time to brew my own. You kits are perfect along with the brewing instructions. Just made my first batch and it's just great to be able to make my own and not have to drive sn hour to fill up my jars. Thanks and I'm sure I'll be back to fill some jars and get some supplies.

I got one of these one year ago and never looked back. Have been brewing continuously starting with that first mother. (Posted on 12/29/2016)

ScobyReview by Brenda
How do you rate this product?
SCOBY arrived healthy and with appropriate amount of starter medium. It brewed a perfect one gallon batch in a approximately 8-9 days. Your instructions for brewing were by far the easiest to follow for a novice booch brewer who was becoming frustrated and disappointed following others recipes/instructions. Thank you!

Fresh productReview by Crow
How do you rate this product?
I received my Scoby and used it to brew my first batch of Kombucha. The Scoby was fresh looking and nicely packaged with the right amount of brew to get it started. It brewed perfectly and was very tasty. Starting on my second batch now. (Posted on 10/26/2016)

I should have skipped the 'hydrated' SCOBYReview by Jamie
How do you rate this product?
I ordered my SCOBY after failing with the hydrated one from another company. Not confident in my brewing skills, you were recommended by a friend I met at Permaculture Voices in March 2016. 5 months later I'm brewing two gallons and teaching people how to brew. Love your teas also! (Posted on 7/31/2016)
Convenient & it worked great!Review by Karen
How do you rate this product?
It was either drive across town & find parking -- or do mail order. Saw the reviews and figured mail order wasn't as weird as it sounded at first. It came in a couple days, I followed the directions...and even the first batch tasted like I get at the tea house. (Posted on 7/21/2016)

I was nervous, of course, about starting my kombucha. After researching this I opted out of even trying the dehydrated thing I had previously ordered. This scoby has taken off! I am very pleased. My first batch of kombucha is almost done. Tested and tasted it yesterday. So excited. It may be finished today or tomorrow! Yes! (Posted on 7/19/2016)

This place is top notch! A very healthy SCOBY and the shipping is amazingly fast. Do Not settle for a cheaper alternative. A high quality, fresh SCOBY is the key to 'Buch success! (Posted on 5/3/2016)
First time brewerReview by Stacie
How do you rate this product?
I ordered my kit via amazon and claimed my SCOBY the day the kit arrived. I had my SCOBY in 3 days, fast and quick. It was healthy and packaged nicely. My first batch of buch is almost ready and it looks good. I can't wait to 2nd ferment. (Posted on 4/5/2016)
Seems pretty good!Review by Alex
How do you rate this product?
I made my first batch, and the SCOBY made a new SCOBY within 9 days. By the 15th day, the new SCOBY was bigger than the first one! I cannot rate the taste yet because I think I waited too long so it was a little vinegary. I can't wait for my next batch so I can taste it for real! (Posted on 3/16/2016)
Already working its magic!Review by Amanda

I had a scoby from another source online and it never "took" so I ordered one from Brooklyn Kombucha and I am more than happy! I have had it in its first tea batch for only a few days and I can see such a difference! This happy little guy is working its magic already! (Posted on 3/3/2016)

Ordered my KBBK Scoby Tuesday night, February 9th. It made the cross country trip to Portland, Oregon by Friday the 12th. Today the 14th it's already doubled in size working hard to make me some amazing booch! Thanks for delivering an amazing happy healthy product! (Posted on 2/15/2016)
Works perfectly..even for first time Buch brewers like me!Review by Sam
How do you rate this product?
I love Kombucha but fed up of paying $22 per growler fill for my fave local find, I decided to try and make it myself. I found the starter kit from Brooklyn Kombucha and with it this scoby which arrived in a healthy form, sealed in a bag with a good starter buch keeping it cozy! As a result -two weeks later -even in unusually chilly weather -we were enjoying iur first brew...a mango kombuca , thanks to this scoby which is now sitting in batch 2, doing its magic!

Phenomenal little animalReview by Peter L
How do you rate this product?
So, this is my first SCOBY and my first time brewing. Between Eric's video and this SCOBY my wife and I have the most delicious Chaga Chai kombucka imaginable. Honestly, it blows the doors of the Chaga Chai Kombucha brewed by our local artisan brewer in Portland, ME. The product arrived happily swimming in a beautiful pool of buch and was accompanied by a little hand written note to boot!
Really excellent in every way. Thanks KBBK! (Posted on 12/28/2015)
