What you will do

During the workshop you will learn the basic principles of fermentation and make kombucha using a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). This workshop will be full of tasting and interesting facts. Kombucha has endless taste possibilities so you will also learn to experiment with this during this workshop.
