Your Kombucha adventure begins with instruction. To get started, I recommend the following books. These are four of my favorite. I go back to these books over and over for tips, wisdom, and to continually inspire me. I am constantly asked where a beginner or even an expert can get more detailed information, and these two books are always my first thought.

This book is a complete guide. If you are looking to research kombucha, look no further. I cannot begin to explain how valuable this book has been to me. There are hundreds of recipes, hundreds of flavor combinations. It will really open your mind to what is possible with regards to kombucha and brewing it yourself.
This is the book that, “Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and Diet Dictocrats”. This book literally changed my life! She goes into an amazing amount of detail with regards to the human body and its relationship to food. Read as she breaks it all down, from how food effects the brain, the reproductive system, protects us from disease, etc. Whether you are getting into kombucha or you simply want to challenge everything you have been taught about nutrition, you must read this one.
