Step-by-Step Instructions: 

Getting Started

What is kombucha and how is it made?

Kombucha is a fermented tea beloved for its unique taste and centuries-old tradition. It's crafted through a simple yet fascinating process where tea, sugar, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) combine and ferment over a period of time. This process creates a slightly tangy, effervescent drink. With our Kombucha Making Kit, you embark on an exciting journey, turning everyday ingredients into a delicious beverage. Learn more about making your own kombucha here.

Why should I brew my own kombucha at home?

Brewing kombucha at home allows you to customize flavors, control the fermentation process, and enjoy the satisfaction of crafting something truly your own. Plus, it's a fun, educational experience that brings a piece of ancient tradition right into your kitchen. Our kit makes it easy to get started, offering step-by-step guidance for first-time brewers.

What is included in the FarmSteady Kombucha Making Kit?

Our Kombucha Making Kit includes a 1/2 gallon glass fermenting jar, a packet of kombucha starter culture (SCOBY), organic cane sugar, green tea, and a fabric cover with a hot-pink band—everything you need to start brewing right out of the box. Just follow the simple instructions, and you’ll be on your way to creating homemade kombucha in no time.

Health and Benefits

What are the health benefits of drinking kombucha?

While we're all about the delicious taste and the joy of brewing, lots of people drink kombucha for its potential health benefits. Kombucha is a fantastic source of probiotics, which are known to support gut health. However, it's important to enjoy it as part of a balanced lifestyle. For more on kombucha, dive into our guide here.

Brewing Process

How long does it take to brew kombucha with the FarmSteady kit?

The fermentation process typically takes about 7 to 10 days, depending on your taste preferences. Check out our detailed brewing instructions here to get started.

Can I reuse the kombucha SCOBY? If so, how?

Absolutely! Your SCOBY can be reused for multiple batches. Endless batches, really. After each brewing cycle, simply transfer it to your next batch of sweet tea to keep the fermentation going. This not only makes brewing cost-effective but also lets you cultivate your kombucha culture over time. For tips on SCOBY care, visit our Brewing Tips & Tricks.

How do I know when my kombucha is ready to drink?

Your kombucha's readiness largely depends on your personal taste. It typically ranges from sweet to tangy. If you're curious, just give it a little taste. You'll really notice the change as it ferments, and you can decide when it's right for you. Once it reaches your desired balance of sweetness and tartness, it’s ready to enjoy. For more guidance, check our Kombucha Instructions.

Flavoring and Customization

How can I flavor my kombucha during the brewing process?

Flavoring your kombucha is a creative way to customize your batch. Add flavors during the initial fermentation or during the second fermentation (in jars or bottles) by incorporating fruits, herbs, or juices. If you're adding flavors during secondary fermentation, this step occurs after you’ve removed the SCOBY, allowing you to experiment with various taste profiles. For inspiration and methods, check out how to flavor your kombucha here.

Can I make kombucha with different types of tea?

Yes, you can! While our kit includes green tea for its light, refreshing taste, you're welcome to explore with black tea, oolong, or a mix to find your preferred flavor. Our book, The FarmSteady Guide to Kombucha, even includes some advanced kombucha recipes that don't even use tea and instead use ingredients like coffee grounds or hibiscus. Discover more about tea selection in our Green Tea Kombucha Recipe.

What’s the best way to store kombucha after brewing?

After bottling your kombucha, store it in the refrigerator to slow down the fermentation process. If you like your kombucha bubbly, this keeps your kombucha refreshing and carbonated until you’re ready to enjoy it. For bottling instructions and tips, check out How to Bottle Kombucha.
