Kombucha

From Tyrel's Wiki

Notes from a friend on making Kombucha.

  1. Brew 8 tea bags to 1 gallon (spring) water (minus maybe 2 cups)
  2. Dissolve 1 cup cane sugar in hot tea (per gallon)
  3. Cool to room temperature and add to glass container with SCOBY
  4. Ferment at roughly 70° F out of direct light covered with cloth and rubber band (can moisten cloth with vinegar to prevent mold)
  5. Wait 1 to 3 weeks (10 days is good?)
  6. Bottle kombucha with up to 10% (volume?) fruit or juice or whatever
  7. Reserve 2 cups for next batch!
  8. Store at cellar temperature in the dark for 3 to 7 days (or until carbonated)
  9. Refrigerate and drink within 2 months
