Organic thick and extra large scoby (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) for 5 Litre brews with starter liquid. Make your own kombucha at home!

SCOBY stands for “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.” It’s an ingredient used in the fermentation of kombucha. Kombucha is a fermented beverage enjoyed for its unique flavour and powerful health benefits.

Though kombucha drinks are widely available at grocery stores and health food shops, you can make your own using tea, sugar and a SCOBY. On The Secret Sanctum shop you can buy the whole kit to make your own kombucha at home!

A SCOBY is a thick, rubbery and cloudy mass that aids the fermentation process (mother). Fermentation is a chemical process in which carbohydrates like sugar or starch, turn into alcohol or acid. Kefir, sourdough bread and ginger beer require similar symbiotic cultures.

Kombucha is produced by adding a SCOBY into sweetened black or green tea, then letting it ferment for 1–4 weeks. The bacteria and yeast in the SCOBY break down the tea’s sugars and convert them into alcohol, carbon dioxide and acids. The result is a fizzy product with a tangy, sweet and vinegar-like taste. Its specific flavours depend on how long it’s left to ferment, the type of tea used and the addition of other ingredients like fruit, juice or herbs.

Fermentation also increases the concentration of probiotics — a type of beneficial bacteria in your gut with many positive health effects. In fact, studies have linked probiotic consumption to reduced cholesterol levels, improved immunity and enhanced weight loss, among other benefits. A SCOBY, when added to sweetened tea, turns the sugars into alcohol, carbon dioxide and acids. The resultant kombucha contains numerous probiotics.

If you’re interested in brewing your own kombucha, The Secret Sanctum SCOBY is an excellent product to start with.
