Are you Winter Ready?

Are you winter ready Good Brew news.

Settle in for some hibernation, booch buddies.

We’ve shivered through the last days of autumn with winter now here.

This Goodbrew news will be dedicated to tips and tricks for all things winter:

  1. Getting your home brewing setup winter-ready.
  2. Preparing your immune system for the sniffles.
  3. And how to keep warm on long winter nights (not like that you cheeky monkey).

Keep Your SCOBY Toasty in the Winter Months

Three different Good Brew fermentor jars with taps.

That gorgeous little SCOBY that’s growing in your homebrew kit gets cold too! Just like your other pets, it needs a little extra love and warmth as the colder weather rolls in.

The glorious sweet little bacteria working to make your at-home kombucha is kinda fussy about the temperature, they thrive at 23 degrees celsius, but they can survive at 10 degrees on either side of that.

Heating, drafts, fireplaces and long cold winter nights can all cause fluctuations in temperature in your home. So finding a spot where your booch is consistently in that sweet spot around 23 degrees is key to a happy, healthy and harmonious SCOBY.

The moment when we have to be most careful about the thermostat is just after feeding your SCOBY. The bacteria that emerge to eat and ferment your kombucha matters! Good bacteria grow in a warm environment, and bad bacteria love the cold. Here are our tips for the best spots in your home for a winter ready home brewing set up.

Where You Place Your Fermentor Matters

The fridge. The coldest place inside is the warmest place outside. By placing your fermentation jar on top of the fridge, or on a shelf above your fridge, the heat that rises from the inside provides a warm space for your SCOBY to grow. Wrapping the fermentation jar in a thick blanket adds an extra layer of insulation.

The hot water system. It’s worth hunting down that mysterious cupboard in your house. It provides warmth not just for toasty winter showers, but for your SCOBY too. Pop your fermentation station in that warm little space in a box or milk crate insulated with a scarf or blanket. Make sure the opening of the jar is still covered by a breathable, dust-defying cloth.

The humble milkcrate. The easiest, simplest, most sustainable option is a thick warm blanket or scarf tucked into a milkcrate. Snuggle your fermentation jar in to keep the ‘booch warm and growing. The fermentation process generates its own heat and the insulation from the blanket guards it against any drops in temperature. And of course, it never hurts to give your booch a hug – we all need one for the colder months.


Preparing Your Immune System for Winter

Look after your gut and your gut looks after you.

Jars and bottles of the Extremely Alive Defend Flu Shot drink.

The Flu Shot from Extremely Alive.

Our sister company, Extremely Alive, combines years of research in medical science with ancient brewing techniques to produce kick-ass wellness tonics that leave you feeling invincible. Exactly what we all need as the dreaded lurgie floats around in the colder months.

The flu shot is designed to help potentially fortify your defences against colds and flus by recharging your cellular soldiers and boost your internal defences.

Made with the same ancestral SCOBY as all our living kombucha, the Extremely Alive tonics pack a punch against cold and flus. Prevention is the best line of defence this winter.

Mulled Wine Kombucha

Warm up your kombucha and your winter nights.

Glasses of mulled wine kombucha with cinnamon and orange.

Our simple mulled wine recipe makes a booch-iful non-alcoholic version of this winter favourite.

Gently dry heat a few star anise, a stick or two of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg powder, a few cloves and a quarter cup of sugar in a saucepan.

As your sugar caramelises, stir continuously, gently pouring in a cup of water. Check for sweetness, add a little more sugar if needed, simmer and enjoy those gorgeous aromatics.

Once sugar is completely dissolved, take your mixture off the heat, and let it cool. A few orange slices popped in for colour & a little flavour too.

Be careful, you’ll kill your living kombucha if you add it to a hot mixture! Once it’s below 50 degrees celsius, pour in your own homebrew, or one of the Goodbrew’s living kombuchas. We recommend the hibiscus, ginger and lemongrass living kombucha. The perfect flavour match for a this wintery and comforting brew.

Victoria Only Deliveries for Kombucha Bottles

Due to the extremely alive nature of our organic kombucha, we ship within Victoria only as the bottles can’t remain out of the fridge for too long.

If you see a kombucha company offering cheap kombucha shipped throughout all of Australia, be careful of what is actually in these bottles. These companies may be selling “dead” kombucha, which has had the beneficial bacteria goodness stripped out to make it shelf stable.

For large stockist orders, we can make an exception and arrange refrigerated transport. Please contact us to discuss and place your stockist order.

Our Next Kombucha Workshop is on 25/2/2021

Our COVID-safe kombucha brewing workshop are back with a bang! The next one will be held on Thursday, 25/2/2021 and are held monthly on last Thursday of the month. If you can’t make it to our February workshop, swing by the next one.
