Attention: Calling All Kombucha Holics!
Kombucha Dave here. Thanks for stopping by our brand spankin’ new kombucha site. This site is more than just a cool place to pass time by at work — In fact it is:
- A kombucha blog that is updated almost as quickly as I drink kombucha!
- A video library filled with TONS of Kombucha Videos to show you how to make kombucha and we are constantly adding to our list. Most of these videos are free to our kombucha Kommunity subscribers… (if you have not already done so, feel free to sign up and get a boat load of goodies when you do!).
- Speaking of Kombucha Kommunity... our new site is now pimped out with social web 2.0 which means that it is easy now to be part of the kombucha party and participate with comments either on this site, via facebook, twitter, youtube, and our new kombucha forums which makes it easy to post your kombucha questions.
- The BEST Kombucha Mushrooms or if you prefer to call them, ahem like I do, Kombucha Cultures around. How do I know? Because THOUSANDS of peeps have told me
- A Kombucha SCOBY needs a kombucha brewing container, and we are also proud to have created the first GetKombucha Continuous Kombucha Brewing System.
New Kombucha Site?
Even though this site has been updated, does not mean that we are new! You see I have been making kombucha now for about 6 years… and have been teaching peeps how to make kombucha by sharing my experience with the world via the internet for almost just as long. When I first started brewing at home, I was so excited to share it with everyone. I first posted a sale of a kombucha culture on craigs list (which I would hope every one knows what craigs list is.. if you don’t please check it out.. as it is not only responsible for my very first kombucha sale, but I have found everything from re-used couches to ha ha re-used roommates from their site!) — Anywho… Back then I would actually drive to the kombuchaholics house and not only bring the culture but stay there to answer any questions they might have about kombucha brewing. That of course led to me spending half of the afternoon making kombucha with this stranger, turned kombucha buddy! It was awesome, fun, and very rewarding (not so much financially though b/c if you know LA the price of the culture barely covered the gas and time in traffic). Anyways, as kombucha got more popular in the stores it seemed that not only the demand for more kombucha mushrooms also became more popular but the need for kombucha brewing information also became so important.
This led me to create the first kombucha web site entirely dedicated to kombucha back in 2005! Damn I am old It has been wonderful and that combined with our first of it’s kind 7 Day Kombucha Mini Course.. that THOUSANDS have enjoyed I felt so good to be able to be a small part in someone’s kombucha education.
We Became a Dinosaur. As you know the internet and technology moves faster than I can drink kombucha (actually you really should not drink kombucha too fast… but more on that later – or just check out the article!.. so it was only used as a horrible analogy that technology moves really fast). What once was the KING of Kombucha Sites.. became a dinosaur.. ok maybe not a dinosaur, perhaps a pterodactyl, because we were still pretty fly (I know, extremely cheesy humor). This is why I am sooo pumped to be able to offer you the same amazing kombucha FUN, and now in a more enhanced experience.
Anyways, whether you are a veteran getkombucha Kombuchaholic that has been with us since 2006 or you are brand spankin’ new to kombucha… welcome – and let me be the first to say… HAPPY BREWIN’ Dave oh, and I just signed up for Google+ so hit me up there too!
Kombucha Tip of the Week
When making your sweet tea for kombucha, cut the water used for boiling in half. Use the same amount of sugar and tea as you would for your past recipes. Add water to your kombucha brewing container first. Then place your concentrated sweet tea into the container pouring rather quickly (but carefully), as the pressure of the sweet tea being placed into your container will help stir the cold water. You could also add K-tea and then add the sweet tea to the rest of the water in the brewing container. For more kombucha making tips, make sure to sign up for the Kombucha Newsletter where you will receive kombucha videos, kombucha recipes, and lots and lots of other goodies! We believe in the world of “How To Make Kombucha” sites, that it is important to keep our readers in the know of what is going on with Kombucha and Kombucha Tea, and well, all things Kombucha and health related.
KomBucha Benefits video
We love talking about all the benefits of kombucha tea! In fact we dedicated an entire kombucha youtube channel just to discuss Kombucha Benefits.
The thing is, that while there are tons of benefits of drinking kombucha (we listed the top 10 kombucha benefits from a survey we conducted of our readers), some drinkers do experience some temporary side effects of kombucha.
And while there can be a small percentage of people who might be in a current state to be allergic to kombucha (I say current state, b/c I have personally see people who had food allergies to a specific type of food, no longer have those allergic reactions when they made other changes in their lifestyle, ex: milk allergy went away when they removed processed foods and switched to raw milk prepared with cardamom and cinnamon and slightly warmed).
In this video below I offer another take on what might be going on if you are experiencing some kombucha side effects. I talk about what are the most common side effects, and then my favorite… what you can do to help control the side effects of kombucha.
As you can probably see by now, I LOVE Kombucha! So much that a few years back I coined the phrase Kombuchaholic. I was at a friends house who just found out about kombucha and I ended up talking to him for like 2 hours about kombucha benefits and all of my favorite kombucha recipes and finally he turned to me and said; “Dude I think you are a kombucha addict”, in which I responded – “Yes! I am a certified Kombuchaholic!” A few years later… I gathered up some money and some very talented friends and made the one and only My Kombucha Video! The point of it is to show that kombucha is FUN!!! (and really awesomely good for you.) Enjoy!
As you can see, I don’t only love kombucha, I love teaching and finding out more information about new kombucha brewing techniques and then sharing them on this site to show YOU how to make kombucha tea at home for free. Happy Kombucha Brewin’ – Dave
