    Idk if anyone will read this but my mom’s been making kombucha for a couple of years now and has had time to play around with the flavors. She’s tried so many but the best is watermelon and strawberry. That makes the sweetest kombucha we’ve ever tasted.

    1. I love Brad and Claire, and when they do videos together it is even more amazing. 2. When Brad is focused, you can see just how immensely knowledgable he is about a wide range of culinary subjects.

    Okay I’ve always kinda wondered why Claire’s hair is gray in the front, she looks young but it looks to dark to be dye, I don’t know.

    Brad is such a humble, regular dude. That last bit where he sees the guy who looks nothing like him and says he's better looking and to send his resume in. Big fan Brad, big fan.

    Maybe the pickling process only works so easily for Brad is because he is the only person that uses wourder instead of water :0)
