Saccharomyces Boulardii This particular sub-species is new to Kombucha Brewing Not being mentioned in the early Kombucha Books as one of the main yeasts found in kombucha. This species is well known for aiding digestion and thus increasing energy. It starts fermenting fast and produces higher amounts of alcohol quickly. It slows at the end and does not completely ferment all the fermentable sugars
Torulaspora delbrueckii is a very unique yeast. One of a kind as it is strictly aerobic. Where other yeasts are anaerobic (producing more alcohol) when bottles and the oxygen supply is cut off, T. delbrueckii goes dormant. This yeast starts off slow but finishes more completely. T. delbrueckii creates a drier less sugary brew with lower alcohol levels. Some beer brewers will combine T. delbrueckii with Saccharomyces Boulardii to produce higher alcohol levels with less sugar.
Our own Kombucha-Kefir Hybrid according to research this combination produces significantly higher levels of D-saccharic acid 1,4 lawton (DSL) and glucuronic acid, acetic, lactic acid gluconic acid. Contains the specific lactobacillus strain found in Milk Kefir.
