Wouldn't it be great if you could make your own kombucha from home? This is the perfect time to pick up an easy-to-do, beneficial home hobby!

- paper towel or clean kitchen towel
- rubber band
- tea kettle (electric or stove top)

Please note: Kits for pickup will be available at Katboocha, located at 106 Railroad Street, Rochester NY, 14609, on

About the teacher:
Kat Schwarz is the owner of Katboocha, Rochester's first all-kombucha brewery! Katboocha focuses on small batch kombucha to hone in on flavor and artistry through "huggable" fermenters. Each batch is brewed no more than 60 gallons at a time, and each flavor is uniquely paired with its tea. Kat is thrilled to be at the precipice of this explosive new culture in Rochester, and aims to help shape the way we think about beverages.
