What you will do
2 hour class
In the class, we will be looking at Kombucha brewing and we will also spend time looking at other drinks, such as dairy kefir and water kefir. You'll gain a better understanding of lacto fermentation, as we look at preservation, the natural way!
Kombucha is an all-natural, raw fermented tea, milk kefir is a cultured dairy drink and water kefir is a water-based version. They are all a delicious dose of goodness for your gut, low in sugar and packed full of beneficial acids, lactic bacteria, enzymes and antioxidants. They are both known to carry the highest variety (up to 40) of lactic bacterial strains.
In our small classes, we will discuss everything you need to know about fermenting and brewing your own Kombucha at home. You'll receive your own scoby to take home with you, to begin brewing Kombucha. You will also receive kefir grains to make your own dairy kefir & water kefir at home.
During the workshop, you will get to try several different flavours of Kombucha and kefir we have on the go as well as enjoy some light snacks & fermented vegetables. You will learn how to create your own Kombucha flavours, how to create the lovely natural fizz, how to care for your scoby & kefir grains, maintain and grow them so you may produce kombucha and kefir endlessly. You will leave with recipes and the knowledge to experiment further at home.
This stuff tastes a lot better than anything store-bought, most likely contains more beneficial bacteria. It will save you a lot of money in the long run if you're buying it from stores at the moment!

About your host, Cultcure
Cultcure is a food organisation that is passionate about slow food processes like lactic fermentation, dehydration & curing. Working with time, ageing and the microorganisms around us to create delicious flavours and incredibly healthy foods.
Adam's journey into fermentation began over 10 years ago through an interest in slow ageing and preserving food. He started Cultcure initially as a meat curing project which promptly led down the road of vegetable fermenting and kombucha making. He is highly versed in various fermentation techniques and their nutritional value. Adam is fascinated with fermentation and the bacterial & microbial worlds around us and their remarkable effects on flavour, health and preservation.
We work in different locations around London and currently offer classes in Dalston at the Dusty Knuckle bakery and in Walthamstow at Today Bread. Both bakery's are true sourdough bakeries making phenomenal bread that is close to our hearts also working with wild yeasts and bacteria around us.
