This is a how to guide on making your very own kombucha from home! Everything referenced below is using our at-home SCOBY Kit which you can purchase here.
Step 1 – Get Organized
Lay out all the ingredients from your FTC SCOBY Kit. Identify all the components and double check you have everything using the reference image below.
Step 2 – Get Started!
We are going to make sweat green tea with the four tea bags, fill the container about ¾ full.
Step 3 – Steep the Tea
Remember don’t steep too long, only about 2-3 minutes.
Step 4 – Sweetin’ Things Up!
Add that 1 cup of non-GMO sugar 😉
Step 5 – Stir
Make sure to stir up that sugar!
Step 6 – Cool
Let cool to room temperature so we don’t hurt the “jelly’s”, oh I mean SCOBY’s
Step 7 – Add in the Main Ingredient
Time to add the starter and “Jelly” (SCOBY)
Step 8 – Cover It
Now it’s time to put a lid on it. Use the cloth and rubber band found in your kit.
Step 9 – Ferment and Wait…
Now, find a warm, dark spot to let the concoction ferment for about 8 to 10 days before we test/try it. You’ll be looking for the ‘mushroom’ to form on top.
