What is a SCOBY?
The acronym stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria & Yeast. The SCOBY is responsible for fermentation and it gives kombucha it’s health benefits! Hold on to your SCOBY after each batch of kombucha - it'll help you brew future batches!
Your individual SCOBY is grown from scratch in its own container, so the appearance will vary. It will average 3 - 4" in diameter, but it will grow to fit your fermenter. Your culture may be thin or thick, opaque or see-through, dark or light, smooth or textured. It may fold in transit, the pouch may also expand. Your SCOBY might have a few layers that may split or stay connected, it may also have some floaters.
Already have a kombucha kit & need your SCOBY?
NOTE: ALL SCOBYs ship via USPS in a padded envelope. If you can't receive USPS deliveries at your home, please contact us BEFORE ordering.
Our SCOBYs are grown at our facility for ultimate freshness. Due to high order volumes, SCOBY orders may take up to 1 week to be processed for shipment to you. You will receive a tracking # as soon as your fresh, homegrown SCOBY has left our facility!
May cost a little more than what you can find elsewhere but well worth it. Happy little critters in that slime disk!
Easy to work with.
I've purchased beer starter kits then graduated to dove gallon batches. I've always gotten top quality ingredients and hardware.
It makes me joyous. I know this woman in Vermont who tells me everything I need to know about brewing kombucha and she said that this SCOBY is well worth the investment. I observed the fermentation today and it looked like a little fat jellyfish with tendrils reaching into the deep ocean. Thanks, Craft-A-Brew.
My daughter gave me a Kombucha kit for Christmas. It’s fun and easy to make great tasting kombucha flavored anyway you like it. And the SCOBY produces offspring which can be used for a separate batch. So why did I buy a second SCOBY? Because my goal is to have 5 1-gallon jars of kombucha fermenting with various start times, so that I will always have homemade kombucha ready in my refrigerator!
