As a kombucha homebrewer, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that MAKE columnist Tim Anderson
brews his own kombucha as well. From the New York Times
Kombucha's popularity has also attracted home brewers. Tim Anderson, founder of a 3D printer technology company, moved from Boston to Berkeley, Calif., with his "mother" -- passed on to him from a friend who got it, as the story goes, from gypsies in Russia.
Mr. Anderson, an advocate for all things do-it-yourself, made step-by-step kombucha brewing instructions complete with videos for Instructables.com (one of over 200 tutorials he has made on everything from tire sandals to wheelchair shopping carts). Nearly 60,000 people have viewed the kombucha guide to-date, according to the site's page-view statistics.
"I'm surprised people would pay to get this stuff," Mr. Anderson said. "The kind you can buy tastes vinegary and dry, whereas the one you can make yourself is so incredibly delicious."
I agree with Tim. Homebrew kombucha tastes much better than store bought!
