Kombucha culture is used to make a healthy probiotic beverage which is good for your digestion. Based on experience and research it also supports your immunity system, lowers risks of variety of cancers and allergy reactions. You will learn how take care properly about our kombucha culture (mother/SCOBY) brewing lovely beverage of your own so you can continue to do that at home or your local hackerspace. You you will take with you working manual and of course the culture.

Brewing your kombucha is fun and you will all learn how to make it "easy peasy Japanesey!" I(Algoldor) will show you simple way how to make kombucha beverage which is going to be nice and healthy based on a stable and long living kombucha biofilm culture - SCOBY, manuals will be handed out and available electronically - kombucha manual (pdf). You will learn how to take care about your culture from A to Z, basics but strong and lasting. We will also chat about various alternative usages like making kombucha vinegar and possible applications for micro-cellulose fiber produced by this culture (hopefully with some samples). We will share the culture of course, you will receive the result of our "long term breeding hack" Kombucha cosmopolita started already a while ago consisting from SCOBY's gathered from all around the world and regrown together! Of course there will be various tastings as always, we will see who brings which.

This workshop is donation based, no one turned away for lack of funds. More you chip in, better for me Algoldor's and my activities, this year I'm investing around €1000 to be at 34c3 and represent fermentation well, I'd like to cover as much of this or get a bit extra if possible for future projects, thank you for your consideration and continuous support!

I hope to see you all at 34c3 again, sincerely, FAA
