White Labs yeast is world-renowned for quality and innovation, certified kosher, GMO free, and subject to thorough quality analysis before being packaged. Beverage Factory is closer to White Labs than any other online reseller, allowing us to provide the freshest yeast possible with the highest vitality.
Due to variable temperatures and transit times we are unable to guarantee that the yeast will remain at the ideal temperature for the entire journey. For increased protection, we suggest adding ice packs and insulated packaging, available below as optional upgrades. If you are ordering yeast during summertime or are located in a warmer climate, we recommend ordering dry yeast rather than liquid yeast.
Yeast(s) Used: WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY
Recipe Supplied by: White Labs' Kristan Martinez
About this Recipe: Analytical lab technician Kristan Martinez began working with kombucha in early 2015. It was during this time that she began conducting trials on growing SCOBY for White Labs. She experimented with various recipes and found one that was easily modified and fermented kombucha to be under 0.5% ABV.
***Note: Starter tea is previously made kombucha or store bought kombucha. Our SCOBY package comes with enough starter liquid for making one gallon of kombucha.***
The White Labs SCOBY is large enough to start 1 to 5 gallons and will grow over time to accommodate larger sizes. If you are making a batch larger than 1 gallon you will need additional starter liquid, which is not provided in the SCOBY package.
