Buchi Kombucha & Brew Co.

Step inside the Buchi brewery (which is always open to locals) and you’ll get a sense that this is a project driven by love. Our Kombucha and Water Kefir is wildly fermented with a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY or Mother) making it packed full of powerful probiotics, antioxidents and digestive enzymes. Everything in your Buchi is sourced from certified organic farmers. Our elixirs (eg. turmeric, ginger, limes, galangal etc) are all local to the SE QLD region, cold-pressed juiced to maintain their potency and vibrancy, and added to our kombucha at the time of bottling. We are RAW! Our Kombucha is brewed in natural oak barrels (to avoid plastic contaminents). We brew our Buchi Kombucha with 100% organic passion and love!

Did you know you can use our Buchi Kombucha Mama Original as a starter to home brew your own Kombucha? Just pour the contents of the bottle into a jar, cover with cloth and watch your very own scoby grow!! That’s because our Kombucha is raw, unpasteurised, and authentically fermented with a SCOBY - the key to Kombucha’s magical transformation. We celebrate the ancient culture by giving you a living, handcrafted and very real Kombucha. 💚🦠🙏🏻 #authentic #kombucha #scoby #culture #handcrafted #therealdeal #independentkombuchabrewersaustralia #theog #organic #love

The humble pineapple 🍍 and a super easy no waste ferment - Tepache..
As the cold weather hits and the sore throats and colds start getting us down, reach for a fresh organic pineapple to help they are rich in vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants.
Just 1 cup of fresh pineapple contains more than the daily recommended intake of vitamin C imperative for repairing damaged cells and supporting your immune system. They are loaded with Manganese, a mineral essential to supporting strong bones.
But for this time of year the hero of the humble pineapple is the enzyme bromelain which helps reduce inflammation, assists digestion, helps reduce mucus in the throat and nose and reduce coughing. Definitely an unsung natural healing hero.

But wait!! don’t throw away the best bits of the pineapple - the skin and the core can be used to make a no waste delicious ferment using what you would normally chuck in the bin. 🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍🍍Tepache~ Mexican fermented drink
~ In a 2 litre glass jar
~ Place the skin (leaving some flesh on the skin) and core of 1 organic pineapple.
~ Add in some optional spices - I used 1 cinnamon quill, 2 star anise and 1 chopped jalapeño.
~ 1/2 cup of raw organic sugar or honey dissolved in 1 cup warm water.
~ Add sugar water to the 2 litre jar and top up with water ensuring the ingredients are covered (you may need to weigh them down)
~ Cover with muslin cloth and ferment for 1-5 days in a warm spot.
Taste daily until it suits your palate, when you see the bubbling activity on top it’s a good sign it’s nearly ready.
Harvest and Enjoy!! Hot tip, on ice with a little white rum makes for a delicious tropical cocktail.. #pineapple #bromelain #fermentation #nowaste #organic #natural #healing
