I started two batches of kombucha on May 26th. One black tea and one green tea. It’s been awhile since I made my homemade kombucha. Are you wondering “What in the World is Ginger Bug?”
You will find the complete recipe with instructions for ginger starter (ginger bug) and how to make old fashioned sodas from the ginger starter; there is a link to a PDF that you can download PDF click Ginger Soda Recipe HERE
You will develop your own variation of kombucha recipe.

To make a 2 gallon jar:
4 cups spring water bring to boil, add 24 tea bags (1 tea bag = 1 tsp, 1/2 cup) (plain black tea,) remove from heat, let steep 30 minutes, remove tea bags, add 2 cups sugar stir until dissolved. Let cool to room temperature, safe to do at about 90 F. Too hot a water will kill the probiotics and the SCOBY. Pour into the clean, sterilized 2 gallon jar, add 4 cups kombucha (reserved from last batch, or buy raw organic kombucha at room temperature, or you can use apple cider vinegar,) and fill jar with spring water leaving a few inches of head room, stir well, then add the SCOBY, cover top with lid or tightly woven fabric secured with rubber band, drape kitchen towel over jar and keep in warm ( 75 to 80 F) place undisturbed for about 2 weeks. I keep on kitchen counter, I use a jar with spigot at bottom so I can taste periodically without disturbing the new SCOBY which will have formed on top. The spigot also makes it easy to bottle the kombucha.

PLEASE NOTE AS OF JANUARY 13, 2018 – 2 of the videos on playlist I made have went private. I can’t find their Facebook Channel either. They were such a nice couple who had made videos on how they make kombucha. I will keep looking but I have a feeling they may have closed their channel because there were many trolls making rude comments on their videos and maybe they got tired of dealing with that harrassment.
