How to Make Kombucha & Apple Cider Vinegar Course

View Classes

Add some spice to your life with our cooking courses in Sydney.

Kombucha and Apple Cider Vinegar – they’re totally tasty, very now – and most importantly, good for your guts. Containing antioxidants and probiotics, kombucha and apple cider vinegar are believed to have many health benefits including improved digestion and enhanced immune function. They say to get the most out of those good bacteria you need a big old daily dose, but many shop-bought kombuchas have added fruit juice and are high in sugar (not to mention that price tag).

So if you’re a committed kombucha and ACV consumer – or just curious to find out more – come along and learn how to make them from scratch using fresh and natural ingredients. Plus you’ll come away with your own flavoured creation in a 300ml bottle of Kombucha ready for the second fermentation, a 750ml jar full of the good stuff, along with a SCOBY and a 750ml jar of ACV, with notes to complete them at home.
