Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons loose tea
  • 1 cup of organic sugar
  • 1 gallon filtered water, divided
  • 1 full-size kombucha scoby
  • 2 cups mature kombucha for starter liquid

Instructions

  1. In a 2 quart glass bowl, add loose tea, sugar, and 2 quarts of boiling, filtered, water.  Stir the tea.
  2. Allow the tea to come to room temperature naturally.  Pour the cooled tea directly into the continuous brew vessel, through a fine sieve to remove the tea leaves.
  3. Add the kombucha scoby and the kombucha starter.  Fill the vessel to the top of the shoulders, leaving an inch or two in the neck of the vessel for a headspace.
  4. Cover the vessel with a clean handkerchief, secured with an elastic band.
  5. Let stand 3-7 days depending on how fermented you like your kombucha
  6. Draw off what you want to drink, top up your continuous brew container whenever it gets down to half or one quarter with this recipe.
  7. Or, draw off most of the kombucha at once, and bottle it using the secondary ferment technique for fizzy, and flavored kombucha.
