Instructional Guide on How to Make a 1 gallon Brew of Kombucha

Items Needed:

  • 1-gallon jar
  • 1 cup (8oz) of starter tea
  • 6 regular, unflavored, black tea bags
  • 1 cup of organic cane sugar
  • Small stovetop pot
  • Rubber band
  • Kitchen rag
  • Food thermometer
  • 12-16oz sealed home brewing bottles
  • Funnel
  • Gallon pitcher
  • Sticker thermometer to place on gallon jar (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Gather 6 regular unflavored black tea bags of your choice
  2. In a small pot, bring 2 cups of distilled and filtered water to a boil
  3. Once boiling, turn off the heat.
  4. Add in all 6 black tea bags, cover, and let steep for 10 minutes
  5. Strain the extra tea from the bags back into the pot and dispose of them
  6. Add 1 cup of organic cane sugar to the tea and let dissolve
  7. Once dissolved, add all of the sweet tea into your 1-gallon jar
  8. Fill the jar with distilled, filtered water to nearly full saving enough
    room for the scoby and starter tea (about 2 cups of volume)
  9. Make sure the liquid temperature has dropped to below 90 degrees Fahrenheit
  10. Add in your starter tea
  11. Stir
  12. Add in your scoby
  13. Cover with a kitchen rag and and secure it in place with a rubber band
  14. Place in a safe dark area away from light. *Kombucha thrives and brews fastest at around 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit*
  15. If the ambient temperature in your home is too cold, you can buy a kombucha heating pad online.
  16. After several days (depending on the temperature) your kombucha will become more vinegary in taste.
  17. You want the tea to taste slightly sweet but have a kick of that vinegary taste. Too sweet means it’s not ready, too vinegary means it’s been fermented too long.
  18. On average after 5-10 days, your kombucha should be ready for second fermentation. Whenever you think the taste is well-balanced.

Second Ferment and Flavoring

  1. Fill your kombucha bottles with 2-3oz of sugary fruit or 100% fruit juice.
  2. Using your pitcher and funnel, fill the bottles with your brewed kombucha leaving 1-2 inches of headspace. *Make sure to save 1-2 cups of this kombucha to be used later as starter tea
  3. Close the bottles
  4. Place the bottles in a warm dark space
  5. Have a test bottle designated. After 2 days, start opening your test bottle to test the carbonation. If the test bottle has little carbonation, continue the second ferment for another day.
  6. Continue this process until the kombucha is very fizzy.
  7. Once your kombucha is fizzy, store it in the fridge, cool, and enjoy.
