With the explosion of Kombucha drinks on North American store shelves it was only a matter of time before a guide to brewing the probiotic fermented tea appeared. DIY Kombucha: Sparkling Homebrews Made Easy (New Society $29.99) by Vancouver chef and registered holistic nutritionist Andrea Potter offers practical easy recipes that don?t require expensive equipment or hard-to-find ingredients. Readers will find out what a SCOBY is (basically, it?s the culture used to make Kombucha but there?s a long story behind it), the history of the drink and other interesting facts such as how to prevent bottles of fizzy liquid from exploding. The book also explores similar health drinks such as Jun and water Kefir. 978-0-86571-887-6
