    We brew our own. Currently re-doing our ferment with some new bugs to get a diff flavor profile.

    I enjoy it.

    After reading this thread, I decided to try my first kombucha. Got the Kavita (?) Raspberry Lemon flavor because fuck that ginger cayenne and other gross flavors. Figured I needed to shake it up to get all those probiotics mixed in. Dumbass me not realizing the fermentation made it fizzy so when I opened it, it sprayed all over me. It was meh....

    I can’t swing a dead cat in this town without hitting a hippy trying to hawk their patent-pending, tumeric-infused, pesticide and hormone free, non-GMO, organic kombucha infused with superfood greens. Most of it is a’ight but overpriced, not good enough to justify the premium.

    I had a rootbeer booch the other day that was out. of. this. world., but it was a homebrew at a food truck and I can’t find their stock at any retailer. Would buy again.

    From section two.

    "While yogurt is probably the best known probiotic food in the Western diet, kefir is actually a better source. Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria and yeast, making it a diverse and potent probiotic (15)."

    True but it all depends on what the company adds to the product. Some kefir (like Lifeway) barely has a billion probiotics per serving, while others have over 60 billion.

    Yogurt and kefir are basically the same product. The difference is that to be able to label something "yogurt" per the FDA you must use thermophilus and bulgaricus cultures which are only cultures to set the thick body of the yogurt but die in your stomach acid.

    Kefir generally uses these cultures too (too make it thicker) but just not nearly to the same level that is needed in yogurt, leaving more 'food' for the probiotic cultures thus increasing counts.

    Saw this thread earlier today and decided I was going to try it.

    Bought the bu honeydew and peach/ginger. Love the honeydew and I actually get that good feeling from it. Really hope it’s not just placebo.

    I tried some this week, it was super carbonated which makes it difficult to drink. Is that normal?

    Had some the first time on Friday, because of this thread. Up sick with norovirus all night Friday. Absolutely sure kombucha had nothing to do with it, but it will likely be a while before I get that association out of my head.

    I think it really helps take the edge off more than anything. I’m sure some of it is placebo, but last weekend I went furniture shopping with my wife after drinking 16oz and had a wonderful time, which I feel is as great of an endorsement I can give.

    Don't be scared off if you don't like it at first, tastes can vary wildly between brands. I've had some taste like carbonated vinegar and others like soda
