Homemade kombucha step by step

First brew sweet tea for a new batch of kombucha. I use 16 cups of water, let the water boil, then add 2 cups of sugar and 5 black organic tea bags. Let the tea sit out until it becomes room temp.



Next prep your bottles.



My kombucha takes about two weeks and a few days to brew. Brewing time will vary depending on your taste and if the temperature is warmer it will brew more quickly.



Take out SCOBY and place him in a clean glass bowl and stir your kombucha.



Cover scoby with enough kombucha so he looks comfortable:}



I like to stir kombucha one more time before I poor it out into the bottles. Yes FIZZ!!!!



I put in 1/4 cup of juice. Today I did blueberry and acai! You can also leave Kombucha plain which is also delicious.



1/4 cup in each bottle



My bigger measuring cup to poor kombucha into bottles.



Rinse out my jar that is now empty and poor in the new tea that is room temp.



Take scoby from glass bowl and put him in his new batch of tea. Poor the kombucha that you used to cover him in the new batch right on top of scoby.



Get a new clean cloth and cover your new batch.



Keep a little sign with the date of when the new batch was started.



I leave my bottles out for a day or so and then put them in fridge:}



Have fun with your kombucha brewing! Also don’t ever touch scoby with metal -it somehow kills your scobs.


Cheers to a happy kombucha day!
