ABOUT THE KOMBUCHA STARTER
Our Dehydrated Kombucha Starter Culture is perfect for the “Laid back brewer” type. Rehydrating the SCOBY takes about 4 weeks and allows those new to kombucha brewing to get the process underway. The rehydration process is fun to watch and a great way to learn about fermentation! When your dehydrated SCOBY arrives, you do not have to get started right away - simply store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to go! A dehydrated SCOBY is a great addition to any larder or canned goods storage.

      I recommend this product

      Worked beautifully!

      I initially thought it was going to be too small, but I followed the instructions to start with a very small first brew and the result was a beautiful, full-sized thick baby. Increased the volume to 3/4 of a gallon every couple of weeks using a mix of black and green tea and it's still going great after several months.

      DID NOT WORK

      Received Kombucha starter culture (dehydrated scoby) for Christmas. I started the culture exactly by the directions. I started it Dec 26th. I purchased a seed starter heat mat to keep it warm to 85 degrees. Jan 25th I made my first batch. Nothing happened so I made a 2nd batch Feb 19th w/o vinegar at room temp (abt 65-68 degrees. still nothing happening. March 4th I checked on it and I have green mold floating on top. I have made Kombucha in the past from a Scoby someone gave to me and never did I grow mold. I would not recommend using a dehydrated scoby. I will only source live scoby's from now on.
