My glass container came smashed in the mail and we can’t use it
Packaging was excellent. Sturdy cardboard & styrofoam prevented damage in transport. Attractive internal carton around contents made it suitable for a gift direct from supplier. Product quality generally excellent however spout is made of plastic. I would have preferred a more durable spout. There may be several reasons not to use stainless steel *cost *Kombucha being a lower pH may react with some metals *suitable spout choices may be limited. Instructions enclosed are logical & complete. Additional backup to ensure Kombucha success is appreciated.
This 4 litre kombucha making kit is fantastic. It comes with everything you need to make delicious kombucha including ready to follow instructions. My only regret is that I didn't choose to order the larger 8 litre kit. I'll be getting that one next.
First brew worked perfectly- second brew on the way. Instructions made it very easy
This is my second brewing kit from Karl Kombucha. I broke my first one and ordered a second. Was delivered so fast that we didn’t run out of our awesome kombucha. Totally recommend Karl Kombucha .. so professional and efficient.. and the product is very high quality
Really well made, easy to use and makes better than expected kombucha. Not sure how it can be improved.
Gave as a gift to a kombucha lover and she was super happy with it!!
arrived quickly. easy set up.healthy SCOBY
Everything arrived in a lovely box with super clear instructions. Just onto my second fermentation with very first batch. So far everything is working well.
Great, a must have two 4 litre jar Kit for brewing Kombucha. Love it......
So easy to make. Everything you need with easy to follow written and video instructions. Loving my first brew !
I love my brewing kit. Originally I just bought the jar but the brewing kit had everything I needed. I especially love the sugar and tea mixture. So now I have two brewing jars on the go for continuous kombucha.
Such a top quality product, great value for money, with easy to follow instructions. Karl and Josh are more than happy to answer questions and provide excellent support to brewers of all experience levels.
So happy with my products and the amazing customer service from Karl and team , had a problem with the vessel and they replaced it not once but twice without any problem and was super helpful delivery was super quick also even coming from WA Will definitely be ordering again and recommending Karl Kombucha to everyone
The instructions have improved since the last time I purchased
So simply to make. I love being able to have my kombucha on tap daily.
The order was easy to do and the product was delivered all intact and once the order was delivered the following up to see how we liked it and if we were enjoying our product was really nice, perfect product and excellent customer service, I would highly recommend this company
First batch worked great onto my second batch now!
Super easy kit to use, excellent instructions. Great tasting kombucha. Thank you.
I am so happy with this organisation and everything about the tea. From the order through to answering my emails. Congratulations Karl and the team. Brilliant service and so easy to follow the instructions for brewing. Wendy
The scoby seems to be healthy and active, I have now had two batches of brew which have been well flavoured and enjoyable. The bottle and tap supplied are excellent quality and I really appreciate the tap so I can sample easily as the brew progresses.
The brew kit leaves you with all the work without having to source what you don't have. Having used the kit I can see what I need for subsequent brews
just doing my first batch.
I wanted a small set up due to space
Love my kit ! The brew is so nice, and great follow up information to make it easy
I really love this kit. I had never made Kombucha before and this kit made it so simple to get the hang of the brewing process. The only issue I had was that the tape was broken when I received the kit. I had a spare one on hand from another bottle so it wasn't an issue. Also the taps can be purchased separately, which is great.
The temperature strip does not work and the scoby has died so, as you may expect, I am not happy. When the scoby arrived it did not look good but I tried to make the initial batch and gave up after, while checking every 2 days gave up after 10 days as nothing was happening. Can you advise what I can do Vaughan Kirkby
Karl has been super helpful and answers questions promptly. The instructions were simple and easy to follow and the videos online were great. I’ve loved the follow up emails :)
I’ve ordered twice now and have had orders delivered in great time to VIC. The quality of product is high
This guy is a fun with kombucha - he is amazing with customer service as well

How do you recommend if I won’t be brewing for 3days due to the school holiday going away for a trip. Can I put the whole jar in the fridge? Is that Will affect the scopy?
The kit made it really easy to get up and going. I've been experimenting with flavours and the 80 20 green black tea mix has been perfect. My favorite flavous tryied so far are lychee, pashion fruit and grapefruit. Best tasting kombucha ever!.
Great service and always contactable if you need any help. Looking forward to purchasing more products. Thanks again !!
The photo is brew #2. Brew #1 was lots of fun to make and tasted fabulous. This time I’ve experimented with organic ginger and green teas. One step at a timeI might trying adding fizz to a couple of bottles from this brew.
I purchased the 4L home brew kit and have been making great kombucha ever since! The instructions are really easy and I still use this recipe every time I make a new batch. The quality of the scoby and the starter tea was excellent and I have had no issues making batch after batch.
Convenient, easy and a Complete set up, to just kick it all off.
I had no idea that making kombucha could be so rewarding, and easy to do. I brought a starter kit from Karl and it had everything that was needed to start a first brew, with the products being of great quality (though also consider getting some bottles for bottling). I also brought a heater mat as well as the kit, which helps maintain the brew's temperature around 24-26oC over winter. I've got a knitted wrap for the jar also to keep the brew warm and snug. Karl has a way of explaining that make things so easy to understand, and he is always willing to share his knowledge. I've bottled my first brew which turned out great, and now onto my second- for this one I'm using a white tea and it has given the kombucha a slightly lighter and sweeter taste. Also the scoby seems to be settling in better for the second brew. Getting to know the scoby I think is part of the process too, its a living thing..! (I might think about giving it a name :) ) Many thanks Karl, your help and assistance as well as great products have been fabulous and greatly appreciated.
This was a gift for my daughter. Georgia loves it and will soon have her first brew. She was thrilled with everything. She has her jar wrapped in a favourite wool jumper as well as the warming mat.
You go above and beyond on selling and helping with setting up, very informative and I must say very reasonably priced.
Prompt delivery of all ordered products. Lots of instructions on how to make the first brew and lovely range of quality productS
I have been brewing kombucha for 30 years .Tibeten Godly tea.4000 BC. She is a beautiful scoby.Thriving .Thankyou karl.Radiates youthful appearance.And mental calmness and energy plus.
Having a kit with detailed instructions, extra support and all you need to get started was just what I needed! It eliminated the scariness of the unknown that has held me back from Kombucha brewing for years! Now that I've started, I'll never look back... ready for another kit to keep up with the family's demands . Thanks for making it so easy Karl!
We are very happy with first time makers of Kombucha. Packaging and quality all fantastic and it all arrived very quickly. Thanks very much.
Easy to set up and good quality scoby and instructions.
I love this Kombucha brewing kit, so easy to set up & use. Have just completed my first 'brew' & it is fantastic. Service when ordering was excellent, parcel arrived promptly & was well packed. Thank you Karl, Steph
I’m loving learning about and making, and of course drinking!!! our Kombucha. Your starter instructions and videos and notes helped me with my beginners questions/anxiety and I’m so glad I found you when I googled kombucha kits. I’m loving the 4lt bottles which are easy to manage/move and the heat pads are awesome for this chilly winter. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!!!!
Love the product, but found I like it better after abut 14 days brewing
Good size jar and easy to make with the kit.
I was so excited to be making my own kombucha! The instructions were super helpful, the website and staff too. Everything is good quality and really worth it. This is a great product and cannot this business high enough for their help in making this a painless process for this newbie kombucha maker. Thank you all so much! The only thing I was wondering about was whether a heat blanket wouldn’t work better than the heatpad? The bottle is large and the heatpad has such a small heat signature. It has also been such a cold winter that I couldn’t get my SCOBY warm enough even with the heatpad. So I built my kombucha a little insulated box to grow in an now my SCOBY is a happy little worker.
I bought this for my friends birthday after her failed Kombucha attempt with not the right materials. This package is perfect! It’s affordable and the design is great. I can’t wait to see (and taste) the kombucha made from this kit. Thank you!
So happy with our brewing kit - almost a year on and we are still making great kombucha from the original Scoby.
Karl has been helpful and very quick to reply to any inquiries. Delivery was very prompt. Thank you Karls Kombucha.
A fantastic kit to get started with Kombucha! Pre measured sugar and tea, high quality starter tea and scoby, and easy to follow instructions. My first batch turned out beautifully. Would definitely recommend buying a heat pad if you're making kombucha in colder places to speed up the ferment. Very satisfied customer!
Unfortunately, the product is great, but the delivery side of the business is poor as there appears to be a problem with getting the in coming orders out in a timely fashion! In fact at times l feel as if my orders are not going to arrive at all! That is until l put a complaint through to the company via a email. Gail McCann ORIENT POINT NSW
I ordered the 4L kit as a birthday present for my partner. It arrived within the week it was ordered and it was very well packaged. My partner is very excited and carefully brewing his first batch now.
Great product! Instructional videos were very easy to follow. Would recommend Karl Kombucha to everyone !!
Great service. Ordered my kit and it was delivered within a few days. So easy to set up lots of information so you cant go wrong and everything you need included as stated. When I was unsure whether my brew was not warm enough and sent an email asking for advice received an answer back promptly. I have just bottled my first batch and I am looking forward to enjoying it as it tasted so yummy while fermenting/brewing.My second batch is underway. Thank you so much guys.
Great product! Loving the kombucha! It's easy to do and fun to make!
every order I've done has arrived very well packed. Excellent instructions and a very good brew one can make.
Wonderful to be able to order for a gift & have it directly sent to family including a new scoby for me. Always top products.
This is my first attempt at making Kombucha. Everything I expected in the 4L kitset was as expected. I’m very impressed with the kitset I brought another 4L kitset. I want too make different flavours with kombucha tea
Everything I needed to get set up. Now onto the flavouring. Thanks Karl!
First brew ready and husband loves the taste
It’s a great set up for a first timer. I’m looking forward to making many more.
Having great fun making my own brew; and the more I do the more experimental I am becoming with flavouring, currently fresh ginger is my favourite though cinnamon is a close second. :)
I was very excited to receive my kit. Great design easy to follow instructions. However after getting it all ready I then read some of your blogs about the health of my kombucha and how to keep it in a controlled environment (temperature) as I live in Melbourne going into the cooler months this is a problem. Easily solved with a heating mat, but would have been good to know this when placing my order so I could purchase one at the time. Now I am just waint for it to arrive and hoping my first batch will be a success.
So glad I found this business online for my first ever attempt at brewing Kombucha. The information supplied is clear and easy to follow . There are so many receipes and tips on their website that I am looking forward to trying. All of this made this a breeze to do. Customer service also Awesome!
I've really enjoyed using Karl's Kombucha Kit. The kit and the step by step 'how to' were both super helpful in making my own brew from home for the first time. Karl is also very fast at responding to any queries. I would highly recommend purchasing this kit!
Love how easy this kit made brewing my own kombucha! The step-by-step instructions made it so clear. I'm currently waiting for my first batch (wild cherry and plum) to complete a second fermentation; here it is bottled with my other fermented food creations.
In the process of brewing my first batch and it's looking great. Will be u upgrading to an 8L soon.
This is my first time brewing kombucha and the kit is brilliant! It’s a much better quality than other kits I looked at and everything I needed was included. Delivery was quick, instructions that came with the kit were easy to follow - now just waiting for it to be ready to enjoy!
Simple instructions and easy packaging made this a dream to start my first brew. I hope I’ll be making many more!
Really easy to set up and use, even for having never done it before. Great to have everything you need for the first brew so you know it's right. I probably should've checked room temperatures before ordering and worked out I needed a heat mat as well. Maybe a little prompt when you enter delivery address at different times of year to say a heat source likely required?
My kit arrived promptly and was as described. Instructions were clear. It’s all been put together and now I’m waiting for my first brew.
Love the flavour!! it works amazing!!
First brew successfully bottled and second on the go. Can't wait to drink it.
Love it, already onto my second brew-really perfect and a great set. The videos and instructions help a lot
Thank you Karl for the clear instructions and quality materials. Here's a picture of our first batch. It was ready to "harvest" in 10-12 days. :) I love that we were able to test it through the spigot to know exactly when it got to our liking. The parcel took one week to arrive. We were impressed not only with the quality of the materials for brewing and the healthy-looking scoby but also with the materials used for the packaging to protect the scoby and the glass container.
I’m absolutely LOVING my kombucha kit, and the instructions are amazing and so so easy to follow
Excellent service and easy to follow instructions
Received our 4 Litre kit in a timely manner and everything you need to make your Kombucha is in the kit. Our brew has been going for 8 days now, we tried it for first time yesterday and it tasted great, smells really nice also - a fresh yeasty odour. Can't wait for another week or two to pass so we can start to use it and to make a fresh brew. Really glad we purchased this from Karl, it is a very high quality product and is working very well. Just follow the instructions properly and it should all work. Just remember to check after you attach the tap that it doesn't leak before adding your tea mixture, you may need to give it an extra couple of turns.
My first brew was a success. So great to have all the information provided to help along the way. Flavours worked well Raspberry Blueberry & Green Apple Ginger Pineapple
I have now bought two 4L starter kits from Karl Kombucha. Received them quite quickly both times, complete and well packaged. First brew was tasty and they are getting better over time. Highly recommend.
Delicious kombucha first time, a great kit!
Wonderful product & customer support. Already drinking my delicious kombucha.
So happy with my kit. Lots to learn and the support is all there.
Easy purchase and the kit is doing exactly what it proposed. Very happy with the results so far
Great set up, fantastic communication and super easy to follow, thanks a lot!
Starter kit was everything I needed to get me going and my first batch of kombucha was great! Thanks guys.
Fantastic product....great gift for my son! Thanks so much!
My jar cracked when I was fitting the tap. It may have been slightly damaged in transit as the box had 3 puncture holes in it. I contacted Karl and he did not hesitate to send a replacement. My first batch is not ready yet but it seems to be working as expected.
Kombucha brewing so far so good!
The process was surprisingly easy. With simple instructions and advice. Would highly recommend to anyone that wants to give brewing a Kombucha Kit a go. A lot cheaper than the shops and the satisfaction of doing it yourself.
Buying the Kombucha kit from Karl Kombucha was so easy and it came well packaged without excess plastic packaging. Making it was even easier. Boiling the water was the hardest and longest in all of this procedure so I literally had the Kombucha done and fermenting under ten minutes. The quality is fantastic. I emailed Karl Kombucha company with a query and was blown away that it was answered within the hour. I would recommend buying the starter kit from Karl Kobucha as it came with easy instructions and was delivered in a very timely manner. Price is fantastic
Great communication and great product. Starter kit arrived with everything I needed to start fermenting my own kombucha. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. Great tips for better brewing. All in all a very positive experience. Thanks Karl.
Arrived timely.. Easy Instructions.. All products used good quality Cheers
