A naturally carbonated fermented tea drink packed with enzymes, probiotics, and beneficial acids. Make it at home for less than half the price of store bought. This recipe is for one gallon. Scale up or down to make as much as you need.
gallon size glass jar (make sure its really clean!!)
1 gallon of brewed sweetened tea (ratio: 1 cup of sugar per gallon of tea)
a SCOBY and 1 cup of liquid from a previous batch of kombucha
Let sit to ferment for around 7-10 days, though the length of time may vary depending on your temperature and batch size. You can test the kombucha by placing a straw in the jar carefully (slide under the SCOBY) and sipping. It should taste tart but still very slightly sweet also.
At this point, Kombucha is ready for a second ferment. If you aren't doing the second ferment, just pour the kombucha into another jar or jars with airtight lids and seal until ready to drink.
If making into soda, you'll also need:-another gallon size jar or 5 quart sized jars-about 1 quart of fruit juice- (we prefer grape or apple for this) or 1/2 cup frozen berries
