Though our kombucha can be sipped all year-round, there’s something special about drinking booch in the fall.
What Is Kombucha, Anyway?
Our kombucha goes through two separate fermentation processes in order to achieve the ultimate flavor profile.
The first fermentation happens as a result of SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), which is a combination of bacteria and yeast that is found in your brewing booch. From there, a brewer adds the SCOBY to a sweet black tea base. This fermentation is aerobic, meaning that there’s oxygen involved in the process.
There are a few different goals to be achieved during this fermentation. First, it helps to give a batch of kombucha its refreshing tangy flavor. Second it creates a subtle sweat tart fruity flavor that is the backbone of all of our kombuchas. This fermentation is what makes kombucha unique.
Next, we use champagne yeast to elevate the alcohol level and add a clean fermented flavor not undifferent to sparking wine. During this process we capture the naturally derived CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) that we got from the fermentation process to add fizz to the mixture. This creates the unique fizzy experience that is Flying Embers hard ombucha.
