Kombucha Recipe Chart – Australian Metric & US Imperial

Published , Last Updated

Kombucha is a fabulous health-giving drink full of valuable probiotics for gut health! The brew can be made easily in your own home with this simple Kombucha recipe chart.

When I first started making Kombucha two years ago I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Not surprisingly I had a few hiccups along the way.

Over the last two years I have now streamlined my process, and making booch is simple and satisfying.  If you’re new to the art of Kombucha brewing, it might be helpful to start by reading my first Kombucha article which gives detailed information about the brewing process and appropriate vessels.

Below is a short flow chart, but more detailed Kombucha Brewing information is available here.

Anyway, when I first started brewing, all of the recipes I found were in US quartz, not metric litres. So I’ve created this handy Kombucha recipe chart which has both metric and imperial measurements. Hopefully, no matter what size brewing vessel you’re using you will find a suitable ingredient ratio to fit.

If you’re looking for lots of recipes to flavour your Kombucha or you need to troubleshoot some brewing problems I would thoroughly recommend getting a copy of “The Big Book of Kombucha.”  It’s available as a kindle, ebook or hard copy and I found it invaluable. Even Aussie Booch Brewers are able to get hold of the book as an ebook or hardcopy.

Each time you brew a batch of Kombucha you will generate a new SCOBY on top of the brew. These can be kept in a SCOBY hotel. The benefit of this is you will always have a spare SCOBY if the one you’re using gets mould or a fruit fly infestation. I will be updating the site with more information about creating a SCOBY hotel in the next article.

Are you wondering why your Kombucha isn’t as fizzy as the commercially prepared brews? The reason is twofold;

  1. some commercially prepared brews carbonate their beverages
  2. by taking the Kombucha to F2 (second ferment) in a sealed serving vessel you add a flavour and extra sugar (fruit) which adds carbonation. (More info on F2) 


I brew a lot of Kombucha! If you’re located near Coffs Harbour and want to try brewing your own Kombucha I will usually have a SCOBY or two available. Please feel free to message me as these are FREE to good homes 🙂

    Also the tablespoon is 15ml US, 20ml Australia

    I believe you’re using US cups in the metric chart, not Australian. That’s fine if you don’t convert it; though I think you should state this somewhere to make it clearer. Personally I’d change the chart.
    I gave up and bought some US measuring cups because of their blatant and arrogant attitude toward the rest of the world. It makes it easier when using US recipes rather than me converting. As for other units, I cannot get my head around conversions so the rest of the chart is very helpful, so thank you very much 🙂
