Kombucha...Anyone?



Making A Kombucha Scoby Mushroom at Home................
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brew black tea. Place in a jar covered with a napkin and watch a Scoby mushroom grow!

Join a very ancient tradition with this fermented tea, claimed to contain probiotics and other healing nutrients.....
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Bring about 112 ounces of water to a boil.
  • Add 1 cup organic cane sugar and stir.
  • Add five organic black tea bags and steep for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature. Pour into 1 gallon, heat-tempered jar.
  • Add 16 ounces of raw, plain Kombucha.
  • Cover jar with a breathable membrane such as an open, paper napkin or light paper towel. Use a rubber band to hold it in place.
  • If a standard heating pad is available, set it on high and place the jar on it. (This will help to speed up the fermentation process). Let stand out of light and where air can circulate.
  • After about 3 weeks, (less in the summer) watch for a Scoby growing on the surface of the tea. Wait until it covers the entire surface and thickens.
  • Carefully pour off the tea, leaving some tea for the Scoby.
  • Place a lid on the jar. Store in refrigerator until the next brew.

  • Bring 120 ounces of filtered water to a boil.
  • Add 1 cup organic cane sugar and stir.
  • Add five organic black tea bags and steep for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Pour into 1 gallon heat-tempered jar.
  • Add Scoby mushroom.
  • Cover jar with a breathable membrane such as an open paper napkin or light paper towel. Use a rubber band to hold it in place.
  • If a standard heating pad is available, set it on high and place the jar on it. (This will help to speed up the fermentation process).
  • Let stand out of light and where air can circulate for three to six days minimum (longer during winter months). Lift the covering and sip with a sterile straw. Look for a tangy, carbonated taste.
  • If the “tang” is right, carefully pour off the tea. Leave some tea for the Scoby.
  • Place a lid on the jar. Store in refrigerator until the next brew.
