Pour the water then place the kettle over heat to boil water. Use filtered water to ensure there’s no contamination in it, because the bacteria you will need to ferment your tea later on can be harmed by chlorine.

  • This is the quantity of water you need to use for making kombucha in a glass jar.
  • Remove the water from warmth, then steep your tea bags in it for 5 minutes. Because you don’t require the water to become boiling in order to steep the tea bags Pick out the kettle from heat first. After 5 minutes, then take out the tea bags and place them aside. [2]
    • Prevent over-steeping the tea, because this could result in your kombucha being overly bitter.
  • Pour 1 cup (200 grams) of sugar to the tea and stir fry it until it dissolves. Use a wooden spoon to stir into the sugar as you pour it in the tea. If you are cautious of making your kombucha overly sweet, try only adding 1/2 cup (100 g ) of sugar into the tea. [3]
    • It should not take more than a few minutes for the sugar to completely dissolve in the tea.
  • Allow the tea cool to room temperature, then put it into the jar. It will likely require a couple of hours to your tea to completely cool down. The SCOBY is sensitive to high temperatures, so it is very important that you wait before moving on to the next step, till the tea has cooled. [4]
    • You can speed up the cooling process by placing your pot in an ice bath for about thirty minutes.
    • Make certain the tea is at most before including the SCOBY. Use a thermometer if the side of the kettle feels hot to the touch and be sure it’s below.
      Wash your hands with soap and water prior to tackling the SCOBY to ensure they’re clean. Remove the SCOBY from the liquid that is starter which it came in and lay it. [5]

      • Do not worry about what the SCOBY does when it is from the tea; it is absolutely normal for it to float, sink, or go sideways.
    • Twist the starter liquid into the jar and cover it with a tight weave fabric. That your jar is full up to the surface Insert enough starter liquid to the tea. Then, lay the cloth over the jar and then use a rubber band to secure it. [6]
      • A tight weave fabric will possess strands of fabric in close proximity to one another and will keep bugs from your brew whilst allowing air to circulate. Fabric is the cloth to use for brewing kombucha, even though coffee filters will do the job.
      • Ensure whatever cloth you use is breathable. Your tea needs some exposure to air so as to brew properly.
    • Set the jar in a room-temperature place out of direct sun . Keep the jar from other sources of fluctuating temperatures or vents. Put it somewhere where it is certain to remain in a temperature of about for as much as two weeks. Leave the tea brew for 7-14 days. [7]
      • Avoid placing your jar in a closet or cabinet, as it needs good airflow so as to brew.
    • Taste your tea after seven days to find out if it’s ready to be consumed. So as to taste it, the tea is sipped by Gently using a straw. If this kombucha’s flavor is to your liking, then remove from the spot. Put it back if it requires more time to ferment and test it again after a few days. [8]
      • The more kombucha ferments, the less sweet and tangier it will taste.
    • Put aside the SCOBY should you want to use it . Just take the SCOBY from your glass jar and place it. In order to keep it living, pour some kombucha from the jar with it.
  • Bottle your kombucha and store it in the refrigerator. Use a funnel to pour the kombucha into glass bottles that are smaller. Add flavoring before pouring from the kombucha to make kombucha that is flavored. It may become too sour to consume. Just how long this takes varies between different baits.
  • Some things you can add to your kombucha to taste it include fresh fruit, fruit juice, fruit syrups, as well as herbs.
