Kombucha brewer
Review by Vegas Angel on 3/6/15
I'm so glad I bought this kit. My original SCOBY has evolved into a healthy Kombucha machine maker. A baby will form on your first batch, but it won't be very thick. I didn't separate the baby until it was at least 1/8 inches thick which only took 3 batches.
I love watching my SCOBY dance around at the beginning of the brew.
Great first kit!
Review by Rebecca on 2/25/15
I am really enjoying brewing my first batch of Kombucha! My SCOBY is doing well and is forming a baby! I really enjoy the clear directions that are given on the box for what you get. The kit literally comes with everything that you need. My only recommendation is that you might want to get the kit with a larger jar, unless you want the half gallon like me :) I plan on using it as my SCOBY hotel after I get a couple gallons going.

Great kit makes making your first brew super easy!

I love kombucha, and I have been thinking about brewing my own as a hobby (also because it's so expensive otherwise). I ordered it off of Fresh Direct 2 days ago, and now I am just waiting to see what happens! :)
Great kit to get you started

This kit worked great for me to start brewing kombucha. I am thinking about upgrading to a bigger container, love it!
Just Perfect!
Review by Erik on 9/7/14
I am really happy with this kit. I was able to make my first batch of Kombucha without a problem thanks to the pre-measured items. It tasted fantastic! I just completed my second batch and it is under 2nd-fermentation. I liked it so much, I think I am going to upgrade to a bigger jar, now!
Great Starter Kit
Review by Alexis on 7/30/14
So happy with this kit to start off with. I love Kombucha, but was unsure if I would mess it up brewing at home. It was so easy.The kit was so easy to follow and I am looking forward to purchasing more supplies for regular brewing!

Thank you Kombucha Brooklyn for all of your help!
great product!
Review by tv on 2/24/14
I bought this kit about a month ago and love it! So far I've brewed 3 batches and my 4th is currently brewing. The kit came quickly and included everything to immediately start a brew. I also ordered a growler and litmus paper. I am fascinated by the kombucha process and love watching it! I would recommend this product!
Excellent Customer Service
Review by Kat on 1/23/14
Got this as a gift from my boyfriend's sister for Christmas...
The scoby code didn't work, but I emailed the team and they responded me within 2 minutes! Lightning speed!

They are so accommodating. I can't wait to use it :)
