Our Dehydrated Kombucha Starter Culture is perfect for the “Laid back brewer” type. Rehydrating the SCOBY takes about 4 weeks and allows those new to kombucha brewing to get the process underway. The rehydration process is fun to watch and a great way to learn about fermentation! When your dehydrated SCOBY arrives, you do not have to get started right away - simply store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to go! A dehydrated SCOBY is an excellent addition to any larder or canned goods storage.
