Wow! Fantastic book with great knowledge. Read it in two days. On first day order my SCOBY. One thing missing from the book is best place to buy it, I found it though. The author grows and sells them. Just google and you will find it easy. I bought it and made my booch w ease. First flavors I did were strawberry lemonade, blueberry lemonade and cherry lemonade. Just bottled 6 and got new brew going. Worth every penny. Thank you thank you thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps THE definitive Kombucha book
Reviewed in the United States on 6 February 2017
Ok, so I haven't read any other books on the subject. I researched kombucha books and read dozens of reviews on several of them prior to ordering this one. The Big Book of Kombucha far exceeded my expectations. I had never brewed kombucha and I was a little nervous about it. I had googled it and it seemed both simple and complicated to me -- depending on the source.

This book is perfect for the first timer. It answered all my questions. The author included pictures of the SCOBY in every stage of the process which took a lot of the guess work and worry out of it. Without that visual, I might have assumed my brew was ruined at certain points.

The book is visually beautiful and enjoyable to read. You can use it as a reference book or you can read the whole thing. She includes information about the history of kombucha as well as advice about which ingredients work best, step by step instructions, troubleshooting, all kinds of recipes, how to care for your SCOBY and more.

My first batch turned out better than I expected. It wasn't GTs quality but it was still delicious. I would like mine to be a little stronger and would like a little more fizz. I think I will be able to tweak these issues though. I was concerned about my bottles exploding during the second ferment (this can sometimes happen), so I kept burping the bottles and probably killed the fizz. I have my second batch about ready to bottle. I won't burp them as much this time.

On a side note: I ordered my SCOBY and a few other items directly from Kombucha Kamp (the author's website). I've ordered 3 times and each time I received shipment notifications within HOURS of placing my orders and my orders arrived within a couple of days. The SCOBY was big, beautiful and healthy and the ingredients I ordered were top quality. I love everything about this company.
