How to make your own kombucha

Keen to give brewing your own kombucha a go? Or simply wondering how it’s done?

Here’s a simple guide on how to make kombucha using Remedy Kombucha as a starter to grow you own SCOBY (Symbiotic Community of Bacteria and Yeast) aka the mother culture.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3.5 litres filtered water
  • 1 cup organic raw sugar
  • 12g organic black tea (6 teabags)
  • 12g organic green tea (6 teabags)
  • 2 x small bottles Remedy Kombucha Original

METHOD

  1. Bring 3.5 litres filtered water to the boil. Add black tea and steep for 3 minutes. Add green tea and steep for a further 3 minutes.
  2. Strain tea into a 4 litre jar and add sugar. Stir to dissolve.
  3. Allow tea to cool to 30 degrees.
  4. Add two bottles of Remedy Kombucha to tea brew.
  5. Cover with muslin cloth and secure with elastic band.
  6. Leave in a warm room away from food contaminants and direct sunlight.
  7. In about seven to 10 days, your kombucha  will be ready, depending on the temperature of where you live. Your brew will have formed a mother culture along the surface of the jar. By day seven the kombucha should taste 
slightly sour. If you prefer a more sour taste, leave to ferment for a few more days.
  8. Remove mother culture (this can be used to make your next brew) and transfer your finished kombucha into sealed bottles to keep in the fridge. Enjoy!
