Ginger beer plant (GBP) is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. Although a similar concept to water kefir; GBP grains are smaller, slower growing and have a sandy-grain like appearance, unlike kefir grains which are larger and rapid growing.
The ginger beer plant dates to the 1800’s and it’s thanks to The German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures Bank which was one of the few places that preserved these grains of antiquity before they became completely extinct.
Unfortunately, some sellers advertise ginger beer plants for sale when in fact these cultures are not genuine and are simply “ginger bugs” or hybrids from kefir grains.
Symbiota is extremely excited to now be offering this genuine ginger beer plant.
This portion of ginger beer plant is enough to yield 4 cups of delicious ginger beer within 7 days.
With the correct care your GBP will continue to grow overtime, and you can make larger batches of ginger beer.
Here at Symbiota we pride ourselves on customer care and provide ongoing support so that everyone can enjoy their fermenting journey feeling supported and confident.
Please note: cultures are couriered out on Mondays and Tuesdays so that they do not get caught up in the postal system over the week end.
