Available Cultures

2014-05-10 14.16.29

It seems that since I started this blog, there is a great interest in my Jun SCOBY, as they are relatively difficult to come across.  I am happy to send out my extra cultures when I have them available.  If you are interested in any of the following cultures, you can email me at  brooklynalewife@gmail.com




I ask people for $10 to cover shipping and production costs, and $20 if you live internationally.  I also love bartering!  I have traded my SCOBY for homemade chocolate, honey from home hives, wild harvested chaga mushrooms, villi yogurt culture, sourdough starter and bread, a cider vinegar mother, etc.

My SCOBY has gone all over the world, more places than I!   Where my SCOBY has travelled:

      Hi Wyatt, I ask for $10 to cover shipping costs…. Some people have worked out barters with me too. If you want to talk more about it, email me at brooklynalewife@gmail.com.

    Hello! I am interested in a Jun SCOBY if you have one to share 🙂 I have been brewing kombucha for about a year and am excited to try Jun. Unfortunately, it does not seem nearly as common as the ‘booch. If you are able to share a culture, it will in turn be shared many times within my group of fellow fermenters here in Chattanooga and middle Tennessee. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂 -Amanda

    I would really love to get a jun culture from you! I tried emailing you but the email address would not work. Can you let me know if you have a new email address? thanks. I can pay for shipping. Happy fermenting!

      Hi Corinna, I’m surprised that the email address didn’t work for you. It should. You can try delerie@me.com, which is a more private email. If you send me your address, I can send you a jun. I charge folks $10 to pay for costs, but I also accept barters if that appeals to you.

        hi there i’m from NZ & trying to source jun cultures for a group of fermenting freaks here. just wondering how we can get some?

        Hi Kellie,

        Email me at brooklynalewife@gmail.com. For international shipments, I generally charge $20 per scoby. Have never shipped to NZ, so if the rates are really high I might have to charge more just to cover that cost, but I expect $20 should cover it…. I usually paypal invoice folks for the cost, and the only thing else I need is your mailing address.
