I don’t have the time for adding kombucha to my meal times.
||| It doesn’t take much of your time at all. All the time you need is the time it takes to pour yourself 1 oz with a meal! That’s about all you need daily, some people take it with each meal. Enjoy it in a long-stemmed wine glass with meals, or a shooter for a “Bottom’s Up!” experience. Prost!
I don’t have the money for kombucha.
||| If you don’t always have the money to indulge in a monthly 750 mL bottle of Experience Kombucha, your one-time investment of $55 for one of our Okanagan fermented foods courses or an online kombucha class teaches you how to make the foods safely at home yourself, and gets you a culture so you can brew at home right away! (Our courses are kind of like an underground brewing party where you hang with other like-minded fermentors!)
I don’t have the energy for drinking kombucha.
|||If you have energy to eat & drink water, you have the energy for kombucha! You simply drink it with meals. Due to its nutritional components, its’ beneficial bacteria keep us clean and regular. Aiding your digestive system with kombucha boosts your energy - just this one add can work wonders!
Fermented foods make me feel bad.
|||Have you tried raw fermented foods? Sometimes the store-bought vinegar-brined fermented foods do not sit well with people, and especially if they are eaten in large quantities. If you are eating “raw, unpasteurized” fermented foods but still experiencing discomfort, this may be a case of “Too much of a good thing.” Try only 2 oz. a day of a raw, unpasteurized fermented foods/drinks and you may feel much different! You do not need large amounts of these healing foods to experience benefits. Occasionally, some folks experience slight discomfort when they first introduce these foods due to the re-organization of gut bacteria. Adding in more beneficial bacteria to our intestinal tract is no overnight feat, any discomfort from small amounts of fermented foods can be acknowledged as the re-structuring of the gut bacteria and will soon pass, don't give up.
I don’t like the taste of kombucha, it’s too vinegary.
|||Have you tried our kombucha? "The big guys'" kombucha is nearing the acidity of vinegar because of the long transportation process and fermentation style. Kombucha is meant to be slightly vinegar tasting, that is lactic acid which is good for us, it preserves the vitamin and enzyme levels and it increases digestibility of the food. Lactobacillus organisms are heavily researched for substances that may contribute to good health. If you don’t like the taste of vinegar at all, you may find other raw fermented foods not palatable either, but you may find with some experimentation (combining) that you can find ways to get them into your diet, like adding them to smoothies or salad dressings for instance! Our kombucha is fresher and much less likely to have the big vinegar taste from other styles.
I’m scared of mold in my kombucha.
|||Lactic acid is a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria. Our kombucha naturally contains healthy levels of lactic acid. Beyond preservation and safety advantages, lactic acid is what increases digestibility, and lactobacillus organisms are thought to have benefits for circulation. The brown ‘floaties’ in your bottle are naturally-occuring yeast strains. You can eat them! They are harmless and do NOT mean the product is not safe to drink.
I’m not going to drink the whole bottle fast enough.
|||The great part about your kombucha purchase is that its never a wasted purchase. ( Yes, seriously! ) If you aren’t drinking it quick enough and it has turned to vinegar, you can use it as vinegar. Bottles stored in the fridge for up to 6 months can be used for salad dressings, cleaning or anywhere else in the kitchen they want a vinegar pep. If it is a flavoured or special batch, add the last cup from the bottle bottom to a smoothie to get all those bits of goodness in to your belly.
Why is the flavour I want of Experience Kombucha sold out?
||| We consider our kombucha mothers' & brewing an art not to be taken lightly – we are serious about providing the highest quality tonics in the Okanagan and often take time in between batches for special practices that preserve the mother's (culture) long-term health
||| Due to our wild-craft fermentation process, we do not use packaged yeast, artificial ingredients or artificial carbonation. We believe in the natural process of wild fermentation, and this means that not every brew is the same
||| This occasionally comes with stipulations as the high standards for our product mean that if a batch just doesn’t taste the way we want (isn’t PERFECT) we don’t sell it
||| Each bottle is considered a work of art, so our artisan brews are not held to a production schedule
The Intersection of Art, Science + Brewing.
Taste the Difference. Drink your probiotics.
