Introduction to Kombucha

July 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

£35

Let’s dive into the fascinating world of kombucha and learn about the simple process that turns tea and any additional flavouring with into a sweet, fizzy soft drink. Soft drinks are commonly-known as bad for your health, artificial and addictive… But what if you could easily make a fizzy drink at home that is healthy, tasty, and with infinite flavour possibilities?

Kombucha is one of the easiest ferments to make and most importantly maintain at home. Contrary to something more high-maintenance like a sourdough starter, a kombucha starter, if stored in the proper conditions, can be left at room temperature for months without you ever needing to tend to it. Although once you start making kombucha, there is a chance you won’t want to stop and will always have a batch on the go!

Have you ever heard of a SCOBY ? Most people recall their first encounter with one as it is quite intriguing. What is this jellyfish-like substance and how does it work ? Not sure about the difference between bacteria and yeast ? Wondering about what to do with a new SCOBY someone might have given you ? SCOBY’s are used to make Kombuch and in this class, we will answer any question you may have.

Join us for this exciting class where you will make your own bottle of Kombucha, making in unique and personal by adding flavourings of your choice. You will go home with an information booklet containing all the information, tips and health & safety measures to start your own kombucha projects at home.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, a register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this. Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.

What if Make CIC cancel the event?

This event does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales to proceed. Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled – in this instance we will give as much notice as possible and offer alternative dates if appropriate.

What if I can no longer attend and need to cancel my ticket?

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop. Please note: Refunds will be given minus Eventbrite fees, unless Make CIC cancel the class, in which case a full refund will be given.

Why is the Refund / Transfer Policy 7 days?

This is because we pay our practitioners, staff and life models fair wages for their work. Giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

What should I bring into the event?

You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. All materials and ingredients are provided. You may want to bring a notepad to make notes if you wish.
