Event Overview

Kombucha is a delicious and healthy tea-based probiotic beverage that provides immeasurable health benefits. It helps to detoxify our system, improve our digestion, lubricate our joints, build our immune system, and promotes more energy. Its origins can be traced back to 2000+ years ago, when it was known as ‘the tea of immortality.’

Because kombucha sells for up to $5.00 a bottle at health food stores, it’s more economical to make your own at home for only a fraction of the cost of a single bottle! More importantly, you’ll be able to control its ingredients, effervescence and flavor to your EXACT liking.

In this 2 hour class, we’ll discuss the history, benefits, uses, tools needed (and not needed) and an in-depth best practice and how-to of brewing your own kombucha at home, from start to finish. You’ll be able to taste a finished product, see what a healthy kombucha culture looks and feels like, learn how to properly handle everything, and get tips on flavoring and brewing the best tasting, healing kombucha possible. You'll also receive access to a handout that visually details everything out, so you can focus more on the class, and have the notes ready for you at home.

In addition, if you are interested in getting started brewing your own kombucha at home, I will be giving you one of my kombucha cultures and starter liquid. Please bring a clean, wide-mouthed, GLASS jar (at least 32oz.) to transport the culture and starter tea. If you don't have one, I will gladly sell you one of my clean glass bottles for $5.

What to Bring

Clean hands.

Minimum age

All ages welcome

What's Provided

1-page instruction guide, and a follow-up PDF link to my favorite in-depth literature

Hi, I'm Miloš (mee-low-sh), a Chicago-based photographer, hot yoga rat, no-gi jiu jitsu and earth-grown foods/superfoods enthusiast. I have been brewing and flavoring my own kombucha for going on 4 years now, and what started as a way to continually and economically enjoy a tea beverage, has turned into a true passion and appreciation for improving my health and health knowledge, and a desire to share this with others who also see benefit from a healthier lifestyle.

    This was an incredibly fun class. Everyone was really engaged and we were all so excited to learn from Milos' wealth of knowledge about kombucha. He really is an extremely passionate and insightful teacher. If I have any questions in the future about my new scoby or the brewing process, I know I can reach out to him for help. He's an expert, I highly recommend taking this class.

    This was one of the best classes I've ever attended! Milos is very knowledgeable and excited about sharing the kombucha love. I just brewed my first batch with the scoby he gave me in class and I know that if I run into any issues he will have my back if I've got questions. The class got me to finally do something I've been meaning to for a few years and hopefully, I'll have many more successful batches!

    This was such an incredible class! Milos knows everything about kombucha and taught us so much from the history to how to troubleshoot to how to flavor it and so on, plus a lot of tips and tricks along the way. We learned so much.

    I really enjoyed this class. Milos is very passionate and knowledgeable about Kombucha. The information presented was easily understandable and the atmosphere was great! If you're interested in learning to brew this is the course to take and Milos has some of the best Kombucha I've tasted in the city!

    Milos is very passionate and informative! He set us up for success brewing at home. He sent follow up e-mails. Even though I am nervous I might screw up my first batch, I know I can reach out to him for ongoing support if I need it!

    What a great class! I know have the confidence to make my own kombucha tea at home. The class was an open forum and everyone asked questions, gave tidbits, and suggestions. Milo was a wonderful teacher - answered everyone's questions and followed up quickly with emails on kombucha and suggested books. Highly recommend!

    This was a great class, very low key and lots of time for hands on and q&a. Milos and his wife were super welcoming and obviously very passionate about brewing their tea! I loved this class!

    A fun class and very informative. Milos is very welcoming and quite a talker. Plan for the class to run a little longer than the 1.5 hours allotted. I am pretty sure I learned everything I need to know to successfully make kombucha (the first batch goes in tonight). That Milos sends out a pdf with all of the information makes the class itself that much more fun - no note-taking about the details!
