A wonderful book, clearly written with detailed instructions.
This is the best most comprehensive book on Kombucha that we've found. Well worth it! Tons of flavor recipes using the basic sweet tea brew.
There is so much to learn. Good thinking. Wonderful book.
I knew very little about making kombucha when I bought this book. I have to admit I was hugely disappointed that there was no single place in the entire book where starting one’s first fermentation was succinctly put together so one could more easily begin. Fortunately, there are some youtuber’s and bloggers out there who have put together this book’s instructions in short videos and blogs. I’d subtract 2 stars just for that, but the book has a recipe section which is invaluable, and the book is very careful to not suggest kombucha is the end-all, be-all immune booster or home remedy for whatever ‘ails you’. And it’s probably one of, if not the most thorough book on kombucha from every angle of the topic. Having such a well-rounded understanding of kombucha has helped me make it safely, and for the most part, deliciously, improving my carbonation and flavors. I love trying my own recipes now, but my favorite will always be Love Potion 99 from the book.
For those who’ve never made kombucha before, despite no single easy-to-read quick how-to, I would strongly recommend this book. The photos alone are well worth the cost. For those who want to be more informed on the topic, you most likely could not find a better source.
I love this book! It's great for beginners as well as the more seasoned brewer as it covers a wealth of information. (After all, it is the BIG book.) The layout and artwork are very pleasing, the texture of the pages and cover are pleasant, and the writing style is both informative as well as entertaining.
(My only complaint: rosemary isn't used in a single recipe.)
