Vegan MoFo #2: Quickie Post! Homebrewed Kombucha

In honor of the daily posting tradition ingrained in the Vegan MoFo consciousness, I’m delighted to provide you with my first Quickie Post of the vegan blogging extravaganza otherwise known as October. I intend to employ these short and sweet posts to lessen the possibility of my mind melting from a complete overload of college essays and reading, various club responsibilities, my new position as Freshman Class Secretary, and of course, 20+ blog posts in 31 days.

A couple weeks ago, in response to my frustration of purchasing daily bottles of GT’s Kombucha on a lowly college student budget, I teamed up with a fellow Vassarian and fermented beverage enthusiast to purchase a Homebrew Kombucha Kit from my favorite Madison-based brewery, NessAlla. Armed with a gallon-sized glass jar, organic sugar, loose-leaf black tea, detailed instructions, and a full-grown Scoby contentedly floating in Kombucha starter liquid, we embarked upon a homebrewing journey, culminating today in the tasting and bottling of our fantastically successful and delicious final product.

For specific instructions on how to homebrew Kombucha, check out my post from last year’s Vegan MoFo.

Comment Provoking Questions: Have you brewed your own Kombucha before? If so, where did you get your Scoby? Did you run into any problems?

Happy Vegan MoFo!

Until next time, Ali.
