Where you get a Kombucha Starter worldwide
Wo Sie in aller Welt eine Kombucha-Startkultur bekommen
The traditional way to get a starter culture (for the last 2000 years) is from a friend, since every time you make a new batch of Kombucha, a new Kombucha baby starter is produced. After your refrigerator starts overflowing with extra Kombucha babies you must either give them away or throw them away. Kombucha babies are considered quite hardy.

When starting a new batch of Kombucha, it is important to get some Kombucha tea as well as the starter. The Kombucha tea should constitute 10% of your new batch. Adding the Kombucha tea establishes the proper pH level (pH refers to how acidic the liquid is) of the solution and kick starts the whole growing process by introducing a large number of the proper micro-organisms into the solution right from the start. Only beneficial organisms can live in this solution; other organisms die. This is one of the characteristics of Kombucha.

I carried the International Kombucha Exchange for 16 years from March 1998 until Juli 2014. For some reason the Kombucha Exchange will not be continued any longer.
