There's Something AWESOME In That Clearly Kombucha You're Drinking

It's THE GREATEST. (This article is written in parody of Tanner Ringerud's recent post about kombucha.)

I DO! I KNOW WHAT IT IS, AND NOW YOU KNOW TOO AND YOU’LL BE A LITTLE BIT FREAKED OUT BUT INFORMED! IT’S A “SCOBY.” WHAT’S SCOBY, YOU ASK? THIS! THIS IS SCOBY, A SYMBIOTIC COLONY OF BACTERIA AND YEAST, YO.

The SCOBY is responsible for all the live cultures in the drink, the live stuff floating and ultimately infusing in the liquid, and the dead stuff sinking... Yeah, yout heard me: Dead yeast is in the bottom of most bottles.

But why drink the dead yeast when the good stuff is infused throughout the liquid after fermentation? Good question. Our answer: We don't. (Hence the name Clearly Kombucha.)
