Kombucha SCOBY

  • Yeast: Wild Yeast/Bacteria


A symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that is used for fermenting sweet tea into kombucha. White Labs’ SCOBY is free of food pathogens and has been genetically identified to know specifically what yeast and bacteria are involved in the fermentation of kombucha.


As we continue our genetic identification we will publish the data below. This SCOBY has medium acetic acid production and low alcohol production based on our recipe. The SCOBY diameter is 2.92 inches.
