The kit comes with instructions, tea, sugar and a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) sitting in kombucha.
All you do is boil a gallon of water…
steep some tea in it, add a cup of sugar…
pour the tea in a clean non-metal container and let it cool to room temp.
Once the tea is cool enough, you pour the SCOBY along with the kombucha and cover with cheesecloth.
Now, we’ve left it in a warm place and we’ll get to taste it in 7 days. It’s supposed to get fizzier and tarter as the days go by, and you can let it go for 30 days even. When the kombucha has developed to your liking, you can add fresh fruit juices to it, sweeten it, water it down or drink it straight. Apparently, the SCOBY is reusable and it’ll grow in size. You just store it with a cup of kombucha in a closed jar until you’re ready to start the process all over again. If this turns out well, we may have SCOBYs for any of you that are interested!
Pickle and his rabbit toy were a big help in making the Kombucha.
As were Greg and Dwight.
