My pal Mike Lieberman was kind enough to send me a “scoby,” which is the colony of beneficial bacteria that you need to start your kombucha. The process is sort of long, but it’s not complicated at all. Most of the time involved isn’t active time, it’s things like waiting for the tea to cool or letting the mixture brew.

Have any of you guys tried brewing kombucha? I’m really pleased with how mine came out! If you don’t have a generous friend to help you out, Wells of Health on Etsy sells the kombucha starter.
