Adam was a great teacher and was very informative. The course included tasting a whole range of kombucha and Kefir drink that he had prepared in advance of the lesson and gave a good base as to what your attempts should come out like after you have given these a go at home. The course included an informative booklet and gave you the scobies / grains required to carry on this hobby at home. All in all a great course which i would highly recommend.

Very interesting class. Nice small group so quite intimate. The setting was local for me and it leant itself to that class. Adam was very thorough in his approach and explained in detail the process of facto-fermentation. He was thorough when answering the groups questions. He provided lots of samples and tastes of fermented drinks and foods.

The Kombucha and Kefir class run by Adam was great. We were complete beginners, but Adam was lovely and friendly and explained everything really clearly and answered all our questions. It was great to try all the different kombucha and kefir that he had made, he also put on a lovely spread of snacks. I was really grateful to come away with a scoby, water and milk kefir grains to get me started!
