What is a Kombucha scoby?
It's a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) Is the culture used to turn sweet tea into kombucha. It’s a cellulose matrix of friendly bacteria, yeasts, and enzymes (probiotics) that will eat the sugar in sweet tea and in exchange make bubbles and healthy organic acids. It may look weird, but it’s totally natural–and it’s similar to what is used to make many fermented foods, like real yogurt, kefir, and sourdough bread!

How should I store my Ace Kombucha?
Treat kombucha as you would milk, always store kombucha in the fridge. Because kombucha is alive it will continue to ferment. Keeping it in the fridge will slow down the fermentation. Our Kombucha is good for four months from the date printed on the label.
