    In episode 1 of 'It's Alive' with Bon Appétit test kitchen manager Brad Leone, we follow him through his process of brewing his own kombucha. Main takeaways include: be creative, keep your SCOBY clean, take care of her, feed her, and use food-grade bottles to avoid glass explosions. It's a learning experience.

    Update: Brad now uses a concentrated formula that doesn't require ice. He mixes 2 quarts of water with sugar and tea. Then dilutes it with room-temperature water.

    Join Bon Appétit test kitchen manager, Brad Leone, on a wild, roundabout and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, to kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to make fermented and live foods yourself.

In a former life, Brad was a Princeton University science scholarship first-semester dropout who resorted to bootlegging alcohol. (Meant with highest praise.)

so it turns out there's yeast in the ginger skin! so mature ginger with skin is necessary for the fermentation process.

You could use half the amount of water to brew the tea, and the top it off with the rest of the cold water. You could even refrigerate half the water to add back if you want it super cold so its room temp. That's an easier way.

I searched but didn't find an answer to my questions so here goes :). First off... so excited to find kombucha with Brad!! I know he knows fermentation!! Q:1 Can you use monk fruit or erythritol in place of sugar? Q:2 Does the scoby change the sugar so it doesn't spike insulin or cause high amount of carbs per serving of kombucha?
