    I like it too, but I like all fermented things (Kimchi, Saurkraut, etc.). It really is phenomenal for digestive health. No need to be scared of a cultured beverage, lots of things are made with a "melange of bacteria and yeast", sourdough, yogurt, cheese, pickles ... it goes on and on. I'll take this brew over processed sode or 'corn syrup' juices anyday.

    I would try a bottled version if I could be assured it was loogie-free. But no way I could ever make my own if it means dealing with that creepy-ass diseased vulva bit. Just not going to happen.

    ^I can see why! Did it come alive? It looks pretty alive in that picture, like it could catch it's own flies to eat.

    I've made my own sauerkraut and I would happily make my own kimchi if I didn't think everyone in my neighborhood would hate me forever. I've also kept bread starters around. Actually, that part doesn't creep me out. Actually, that part of this drink doesn't bother me. It's the taste and apparently texture, but mostly the taste. Drinking something tart is one thing, but something that tastes like vinegar is another. I read that people use red apple cider as a weight loss tool and I assumed after drinking it once it was because it tastes so disgusting and makes your stomach hurt so bad you're completely put off food.

    kimchi and sauerkraut are delicious. kombucha's not as bad as the article makes it sound but i don't feel the need to ever drink it.

    I think some people just react more to ACV than others. I drink 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water, and it's strong, but it doesn't make me gag or feel like I might barf. My dad can't get a sip down without thinking he may yak all over the floor. My mother drinks it in a coffee cup with just enough water to keep from drinking it straight, which I canNOT do.

    I think I'm like your dad, I can't get it down at all. It sounds so dramatic to say, but my eyes started burning, it made me want to gag, it burned my throat and I got sharp pains in my stomach. And I say this as someone who has drank moonshine before.

    I love vinegar. I could drink it. I especially love apple cider vinegar. This stuff just looks vile.

    Has anyone here ever tried doogh? It's this funky Persian yogurt drink. It's like carbonated yogurt soda with salt, mint and sometimes some other herbs. It's an acquired taste.

    No, I've never tried doogh. I've heard of it, though I didn't know what it was called. I like yogurt with mint and cucumbers, but I can't imagine it as a carbonated beverage. I would definitely try it.

    I'm not scared of any beverage. It tastes like hammered shit.

    Exactly. I'm a kefir fanatic, I love sauerkraut and things that are very vinegary, I even drink plain whey. I drink lemon juice and occasionally apple cider vinegar. Kombucha is just plain disgusting.

    After having it a couple of times, it's safe to say that I will never be exposed to it long enough to find out whether it does anything. It is both expensive and gross. I realize there are better-tasting forms of it out there, but they are even more expensive.

    I think you should do this and report back, Mo. Even better, have your wife post her thoughts here as well.
