Kombucha Recipes

All of these are for a 1 liter flip-top bottle, but can be scaled up or down easily.  The main thing is to use strong infusions of your herbs  and flavorings since it gets diluted a lot when filling to bottle with the primary Kombucha.

Add these ingredients, dissolving the sugar if there is any and then filling the bottle up to the neck with the basic Kombucha from the first fermentation.
– If using herbal tea, make it very strong since you have to be able to taste it in a liter of water.
– If using fruit juice, use organic, unsweetened juice.
– If needing to add sugar, use organic cane sugar and totally dissolve it in water or juice before adding to the bottle.

Make sure you clean the rim and stopper with vinegar before closing it.

Update: after starting to use superior quality flip top bottles (EZ-Cap) I’ve noticed that I can use half the sugar and still get good fizziness. However, it won’t be as sweet if you like it that way.
