Kombucha Tea Recipe
This is a simple recipe for a basic Kombucha. The recipe can be used with a continuous brewing method.
bottled spring water
with no additives
organic black tea or green tea
starter liquid with SCOBY
Pour one litre of water into a pot and heat on the hotplate until it boils.
Add the tea and sugar to the boiled water and allow it to steep for 5 minutes.
Strain the tea and add the remaining 3 litres to the pot. Allow the tea to cool to room temperature.
Place the SCOBY and starter liquid in your fermenting vessel.
Pour the lukewarm tea over the SCOBY.
Cover the fermenting vessel with the supplied lid and a cloth. (Prevents fruit flies and sunlight)
After 4 days start testing your Kombucha via the tap. When the flavour has soured to your liking the brew is ready for bottling or a second ferment.
Bottle and refrigerate until required.
Leave 500mls of starter liquid and the SCOBY in the fermenting vessel for your next batch. Do not refrigerate the fermenting vessel or SCOBY.
Make sure to use filtered non-chlorinated water.
