Kombucha Recipe

Kombucha - Recipe for a Healthy Gut

 

Ingredients Per Gallon:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 6 tea bags (black, green or mix of the two, ie. 3 black/3 green)

  • SCOBY - Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria

  • 2 cups previously brewed kombucha (from a jar with SCOBY)

 

1) Purchase Kombucha Starter Pack - you can find this on Amazon!

Includes: 1 SCOBY and 2 cups of Starter Kombucha

*Or you might find a friend who already makes Kombucha with a SCOBY they can split for you and 2 cups of Kombucha they will gift you.

 

2)    Brew Tea & Add Sugar

 

In a large pot, bring water to boil and turn off heat. Add tea bags and steep for about 7 minutes, after you remove the tea bags then add sugar. Stir and let it cool completely. Sugar should dissolve most of the the way.   

 

3) Combine Tea & SCOBY

 

In a gallon glass (ie. big ole’ pickle jar works), add SCOBY, tea/sugar mix and 2 cups of previously made kombucha. Fill the rest of the gallon jar with filtered water but leave a few inches of room at the top.

 

4) Ferment

 

Cover with paper towel secured with a rubber band (this keeps the bugs and dust from getting in) and put in a pantry closet or on kitchen counter top to ferment for 7-10 days. It is okay if SCOBY isn’t floating at the top (it will later).

 

5) Taste & Bottle

 

After 7 days start tasting kombucha. If it isn’t sweet, has a tangy taste, fizzes as you mix and SCOBY is floating at the top, then your kombucha is ready.

Pour using a funnel into airtight cap bottles (ie. mason jars work) and enjoy!

You can add a few pieces of chopped up fruit to flavor it, however I think it tastes great the way it is!

 

*Fact: 1 gallon kombucha = $28 Store bought vs. $0.80 Homemade = 30x cheaper
