I started brewing kombucha (best drink ever!) last summer. I soon got bewildered reading how to's on line and ordered this book. It is an invaluable reference when something isn't going just right or you wonder if you're doing something wrong etc. I know the book is more than that, but this is what I use it for. I'm very kombucha dependent and don't want anything interrupting my drinking pleasure! After giving a case of home made kombucha to my daughter, she quickly decided she was going to have to brew too. I ordered her a book for reference too. So...since I gave my back-up scobies to my brewing daughter, now I am in a spot. My non-brewing daughter is coming for a visit and she has requested a case. And here I am, having given away my back-up scobies, with nothing very viable to make extra booch. Today I ordered a couple of scobies from KK to be able to do that. I am curious about the big fat scobies available thru KK, since mine have always been fairly skinny. I will review those later. Anyway, you cannot go wrong dealing with these very nice people. There was a screw-up with delivery of my daughter's book (her fault) and the KK people were so gracious and helpful. I have also emailed them a number of times when something was dumbfounding me despite having their book (my fault). Again, they were gracious and helpful.

I could write three pages right now of praise on your book. Now a couple descriptive words about your book -absolutely gorgeous- deeply fascinating, highly educational, even touching. strangely enough I felt emotional at times at learning about such a phenomenal and beautiful healing tonic. I swear the book resonated right off the table. Enough said for now, but I am now locked into this new world. Take care. Over the moon here.

This book is amazing! I was impressed not only at the level of detail and the knowledge put into the book, but also the great illustrations and photos. I particularly like the photos on normal vs bad SCOBYs, as well as the descriptions of sugars you can use in your Kombucha. This is a great resource to keep on hand, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to brew their own Kombucha.

The Big Book of Kombucha is a must have. I kept pulling together information from various sources over the internet however, they excluded the basics for me including 1) The necessity of a healthy, high quality SCOBY and ingredients, 2) Mold Prevention, and 3) GREAT taste.

Reviewed by Michelle Shepard-Gates (Silver Creek, NY, 04/23/2016

This book is the bible for all kombucha brewers!! It is a comprehensive guide to all you will need to know about brewing.
There is a section about the history of kombucha, what kombucha will do for you and what it won't, recipe's with flavor mixtures I had never thought of, trouble shooting guide for those of us who stay up until the wee hours of the morning scratching our heads about what may have gone really right with your brew. The book with its catchy title "Kombucha", Incorporated the use of herbs and what their beneficial uses are, it has bottling tips,  and how to create more carbonation in your brews. Also, something important to me is alcohol content. There is a section on how to reduce alcohol in your buch, or how to increase the amount, if you're so inclined.
Not only are there recipes for brewing, but recipes for pickling food, making kombucha vinegar, even desserts made from kombucha the list of what one can do with kombucha is exhaustive. Consuming cultures, such as making SCOBY jerky, or SCOBY fruit leather, beauty products one can make...and I kid you not, how to make a coin purse from a dried SCOBY along with other ingredients. Also, in the back of the book is something I have found to be a valuable tool for consistent brews, there is a " brewer's minder logs", keeping up with what was used in the brew, time brewed, flavor notes on brews...all which provide not only consistent brews, but help troubleshoot.
I cannot say enough about this book, I had nothing like this when I began brewing and boy I wish I had. Even if you think you know all there is to know about kombucha, get this book! You will be amazed at what you did not know! Definitely the Bible of kombucha brewing and then some. 
Thank you so much Hannah and Alex for your painstaking work and such devotion in leading us neophytes in the art of Kombucha brewing and all this wonderful book encompasses

I had the privilege of attending Hannah's presentation and having her sign my copy on her book tour in Sacramento. She has so much energy and enthusiasm, which she has poured into this truly amazing book. Hannah and Alex cover all aspects of kombucha. Every question I've had so far is answered in the book, from how to increase carbonation to how long to use the same SCOBY, recipes for flavoring kombucha, and on and on.....so much information!! And the photos are super helpful. I'm so glad to have this book at my fingertips. Thank you, Hannah and Alex, for all your hard work, and for sharing your knowledge with us.

Fabulous Book!!!  Out of the 10-12 books that I've purchased in the last couple of years this is the BEST!
The Big Book of Kombucha is beautiful in so many ways.  
The photography is simple, colorful, & shows you real examples.  It draws you in with it's simplicity & teaches with the pictures.  
The watercolors are cheerful, again simple but attracts you to what it is highlighting.  A perfect blend of subtle color & fun design, creating a bright & cheery book...helps you enjoy the learning.
Each section gives you simple to understand instruction & fun tips & stories along the way.
Plenty of information for the beginner for learning how to start with a gallon jar or work your way to a 2 1/2 - 5 gallon crock...or beyond.
You can keep it simple & enjoy straight from the spigot or do second ferments with added ingredients like dried elderberry, ginger, chai spice, etc.to get added benefits & flavors...yummm...these are really great!  I just tried each one of these in different bottles & can't express how good they came out.  http://store.kombuchakamp.com/Tea-Tisanes-Flavorings/
The recipe section is varied so there will be something for everyone & more uses that I could have imagined.
Now, this may not be a big deal to some people but, I love the paper the publisher used in this book.  The pages have a nice thickness & it's not that dry rough stuff that most of my other books came with.  Plus, you can actually read the print without getting eye strain.  The type is dark & varied in sizing so it's easy to follow & see highlights or notes.
For me this is one of the most fun books I've ever owned & am really enjoying learning lots of new information on my journey with Kombucha.  Good for you & a lot lesss expensive when you make your own.
Great job to all those who put this book together.
