As geeks we like science experiments. As San Franciscans (mostly) we like anything novel, particularly if it’s organic, healthy, and foreign. So, a few months ago, after realizing our employer couldn’t afford our kombucha (fermented green or black tea) habit, we started brewing our own:


Now we’ve got more “mushrooms” (actually a bacteria and yeast symbiote called a scoby). These are the “strata” in the jars above. So, if ever you’ve ever wanted to make your own kombucha (it’s easy and tasty) , or if you’ve never heard of it and the idea of a beverage somewhere between ice tea, lemonade, and beer sounds tasty, come by or paypal me postage and I’ll give you a scoby.
