Kombucha Starter Recipe

May 17, 2020

You can start your own kombucha without having a starter from a friend. And here is how you do it!

 

 

 

This is what you need:

 

filtered, boiling water

1 Cup organic white sugar

6 bags of plain black, organic, unflavored black tea

2 bottles of original, store bought kombucha

 

Large jar (about 2 quarts)

 

Boil water.

Dissolve sugar in water.

Add tea bags and steep for 2-3 hours or overnight.

Squeeze out teabags and discard.

Pour tea into a large jar.

Add kombucha.

Fill the jar the rest of the way (almost to the top) with filtered water.

Cover tightly with cheese cloth and rubber band. (note: you can use a piece of cotton but be sure it's clean but not by heavy detergents.)

Put in cool dark cabinet away from chemicals.

 

In 1-1 1/2 weeks, taste the kombucha. You want it to taste sweet with a little vinegar taste. If it's too sweet, put it back and taste again in 2 or 3 days. Repeat the tasting process until you get the flavor you desire.

 

When you do get the flavor you like, take out most of the kombucha, put it in a pitcher and save it in the refrigerator.

 

You should still have an ⅛ to a ¼  of the kombucha and a small, solid kombucha culture or Mother. (The kombucha is the liquid, the Mother is the solid.)

 

Repeat process above using the Mother and kombucha left in the jar.
