What you’ll need to get started:
- 1 x SCOBY with 250 ml starter liquid
- 2 liters filtered water (500 ml boiling/ 1.5 liter cold)
- 4 bags of unflavored organic tea (8 grams loose-leaf tea)
- 120 grams of organic cane sugar
- 100 grams of strawberry pulp
- 20ml lemon juice
- Glass jar capable of holding 2.5 liters
- Stirring utensil
- Breathable cotton/ cheesecloth
- Rubber band
- A cosy and airy space to let your booch brew
Follow the brewing steps for Strawberry Kombucha:
*Remember to sterilize your jar and utensil with boiling water before brewing.*
1) Start with boiling 500 ml of filtered water. Meanwhile, take the 4 tea bags into your jar. Then pour the 500 ml of boiling water into your jar and allow the tea bags to soak for approximately 5-7 minutes.
2) Remove the tea bags and add 120 grams of sugar. Mix mixture properly until the sugar gets dissolved.
3) Top up your 500 ml of sweetened tea with 1.5 liters of cold filtered water and stir. It is to cool down the liquid below 35 degrees, driving it safe to add your starter liquid/ SCOBY.
4) Once you ensure that tea is cooled, add starter liquid and SCOBY to the jar and stir.
5) Now, secure the cloth over your jar with a rubber band. Place away from direct sunlight in a warm, spacious area. For kombucha, the recommended brewing temperature ranges from 23 to 26 degrees.
6) Depart your kombucha to brew for 10-15 days. Now it is entirely up to you to determine when your kombucha strawberry is ready based on your own personal preference.
The recommended period is 12 days while fermenting at 24 degrees. (If you’d like to get more specific then finished kombucha normally sits between 2.8 and 3.1 pHs)
7) When your kombucha is ready, add in the strawberry pulp and lemon juice, put a lid on your jar, and place it in the fridge for 1-2 days for the flavors to seep in. Your strawberry kombucha is now ready to consume.
[Note: Remember to save at least 250 ml of your brew before adding the flavors to use as starter liquid for your next batch.]
