Kombucha Science workshop

1100 NE 47th St #103

🔬 Come join our Kombucha Science community project! The goals of this project are to better understand the microbial ecology of our homebrewed kombucha and explore the potential applications of kombucha-based materials.

At this workshop, we will meet at our lab to isolate kombucha microbes in petri dishes and talk about how our homebrews are doing back at home. If you are new to the project, you are welcome to drop by!
