Fermentation Fun: Kombucha, Water Kefir & Kimchi

  • McVicker Pickles 541a Page Street San Francisco, CA USA (map)


Join Kelly as she teaches you how to make your own Kombucha, Water Kefir, and Kimchi.

These tart and tangy concoctions may look a little freaky, but they are packed with healthy probiotics that your gut will love (even if your roommate isn't so sure about the strange jars appearing in your kitchen).

We'll begin the class with a tasting of different kombucha and kefir flavors to get you inspired for making your own batch. While we work, Kelly will talk about the history of fermentation and the health benefits fermented foods, and why doing it at home is better than buying commercially made (and often pasteurized) products.

After we make our fermented beverages, we will make a big batch of kimchi together to learn about the process for fermenting vegetables through the dry-salting method.

Each participant will take home a jar of each recipe, along with a kombucha SCOBY and water kefir grains to keep the process going. You can take home your custom creations, keep an eye on your ’edible pets,’ and enjoy the flavor in a few days.

This class includes:

-1 SCOBY for continued kombucha making

-1 supply of kefir grains for making water kefir

-All jars, supplies & ingredients used during class

-Take home recipes and access to more recipes online

Additional (optional) fermentation supplies will be available for purchase during class.
