Kombucha is King!
No doubt I have spouted here previously about this magical stuff, but in case not..
Kombucha is KING! (of prebiotics)
Forgiving AF. Is one of the top reasons I conclude thus.
It's the sort of magic that doesn't mind if you forget all
about it for a month or even three. One day you say, "F**k Yeah!", and there it is, waiting, completely mastering its own homeostatic state with zero help from you, thank you very much. Yeasts do similar things.
I went Kombucha-crazy at the New Year and had so much "fermenting"? I missed a jar; over four months it's been working away and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I usually aim to bottle in around a month or so.
Back in the day, I was super-scientific in my Kombucha-making; weights, times, temperatures.. Okay, my weights are still floating-point-accurate but I've learned that temperatures are feelenough and times are seriously
So Kombucha presents itself as not only all the amazing things you (may or may not) already know and love about Kombucha but also as the perfect modern-day ProBiotic for those on-the-move
NEVER-BEFORE has Kombucha been presented this way and so boom! I WIN! Erm.. What was I saying..
.. Oh Yes, if you work off-shore (Aberdeen, remember.. my friends are "always on my mind"..) or similar away-from-home scenario, KOMBUCHA is your Good Friend.
A Probiotic you brew in your own locale beats any off-the-shelf potion, pill, balm, remedy, salve, ointment (stop me! I'm getting carried away!) therapy, spell, treatment, and so on. The gut commands the body. This shit is a kick in your gut, but in a good way. Also, tastes lovely.
You can set up a batch and walk away, safe in the knowledge that the perfect symbiosis of bacteria and yeast will keep everything within that perfect human-range for a long, long (maybe long, long, long) time. *
When you return it will be ready.
* Of course I now plan to test this extensively, with much longer times.
I will report back my findings in the future.
