Project Description

Kombucha … is it for you?

I love having a small glass of ‘booch’ with my meals, encouraging healthy ‘guts’ and supporting my immune system.

It has a number of wonderful health benefits and contains loads of probiotics, antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties.

 

kombucha recipe

Kombucha

Make your own beautiful brews with just a few ingredients and a little patience (about 2 weeks to ferment), but is definitely worth the wait. 
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 14 d

Ingredients
  

  • 16 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup organic raw sugar
  • 6 green tea bags
  • 6 black tea bags
  • 1 Scoby
  • 1 cup kombucha (from a previous batch or store bought) 

Instructions
 

  • Pour 4 cups of boiling water into a jug, add tea bags and sugar, steep for 5 minutes (ensure sugar has dissolved), cool
  • Strain into a large sterilised glass jar, top with remaining water (12 cups)⠀
  • Add kombucha 
  • Add scoby
  • Cover with a muslin cloth and secure
  • Pop in a dark, warm place
  • Let the fermenting process begin
  • Once you are happy with your flavour, remove the scoby (use for your next brew) 
  • Transfer your brew to bottles and pop in the fridge

Notes

  • You are looking for a slightly sour taste which should occur around day 7-10 depending on the room temperature.
  • Leave for additional time if not to your taste ... my brews normally take 10-14 days
  • During the fermentation process your brew will form another Scoby on the surface (use for another brew)
  • Once kombucha is bottled you may add additional flavouring like fresh ginger, turmeric or even mint. ⠀
