This was not the first book on Kombucha, which I have read, but the third. I must say that it is an excellent in depth look at this amazing drink. I would not recommend this as your introduction to Kombucha as it may appear to be quite technical and scientific. If, on the other hand you are already brewing Kombucha and want to understand more about it and the processes that are happening in your brewing jar then this is a must read. Once you have started brewing Kombucha, many people want to experiment a little with recipies. Gunther's knowledge and research material really is useful to give you ideas and guideline to work within.
Much of the material on the Internet and some from other books originate from this book so, I would advise you to read the original information. Gunter is one of the leading researchers on Kombucha, so you know that you are getting top class information.
In this book he does not simply state 'this is the way it is' but rather, he explains why things happen and gives useful parameters for you to work within and to exercise your own discretion.
All in all I found this book to be very informative and a useful addition to my collection. I would recommend it to anyone who is seeking more than basic information on Kombucha.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and well-written 30 May 2006
By Lisa A. Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Since I started drinking kombucha tea a few months ago, I've read several books on the subject. Now that I have read Gunther W. Frank's book, I don't feel the need to read any of the remaining others. He gives complete information about what's known about the culture, different ways to brew the tea, how to store the culture, what to do when problems arise, the effects of drinking the tea, etc. What I particularly like is that he provides all information he has come across, even when he disagrees with it. Unlike some other authors, he's not condescending or proprietary about kombucha.

He seems like a wise person. The final chapter, which is entitled something along the lines of: 'Is Health Really the Most Important Thing?' is worth reading in its own right.

If you are interested in learning about kombucha tea, I'd definitely recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bible of kombucha making; but get other books as well! 1 Aug. 2014
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is more scientifiically oriiented, but has pertinent info on how to make kombucha. Though it has nothing really instructive on the proces of 2nd fermentation. Look at other books for that. This book will describe studies that where done many years ago in Europe on the health benefits of kombucha. That may not be of interest to everyone. It is sort of the Bible of kombucha making, however. If you want serious info and will be getting other books add this to your arsenal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not what i was looking for... 28 Nov. 2013
By K. Moya - Published on Amazon.com

i mostly purchased this book to learn more about continuous brew, which it has no mention of, so i was a bit deflated. other than that the book is very well written & very informative, but it does have a very scientific approach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best book on Kombucha 9 Aug. 2009
By Joseph Lencioni - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In a sea of books focusing on the seemingly miraculous possibilities of Kombucha, this book is a down-to-earth refreshment. Gunther Frank focuses on the facts.

Unfortunately, it was originally written in German and translated into English, and it shows a bit. Some of the phrasing is a bit peculiar.

All in all, if you are interested in making your own Kombucha, this is definitely the book to get.
