Kombucha Brewing: Start To Finish


Welcome to the world of Kombucha! Today, we'll take you on a journey from start to finish of brewing this delicious and healthy beverage.


Slide on your apron and gather your supplies: a SCOBY, tea bags, sugar, filtered water, and a glass jar. Let's get brewing!


Boil water, add tea bags, and let it steep. Once cooled, dissolve sugar, and pour it into the glass jar. Time to introduce the SCOBY!


Cover the jar with a breathable cloth and secure it with a rubber band. Find a cozy spot away from direct sunlight and let fermentation begin.


Patience is key! Let the magic happen as the SCOBY consumes the sugar and transforms tea into tangy Kombucha. Wait 7-10 days.


Taste test time! Use a straw to sample the brew. Is it too sweet? Let it ferment longer. Too tangy? Time to move on to the next step.


Carefully remove the SCOBY and reserve some liquid as a starter for your next batch. Time to flavor your Kombucha with fruit or herbs!


Pour the flavored Kombucha into airtight bottles, leaving some headspace. Seal and let them sit at room temperature for a few days.


The carbonation builds up, creating fizzy Kombucha. Refrigerate to stop fermentation and enjoy chilled, or share with friends and family!


Congratulations! You've mastered the art of Kombucha brewing. Experiment with flavors, and remember, patience and love make the best brews!
