How to Use

  1. Helping your SCOBY acclimate to its new environment (3 days). Before you can brew your first batch of Kombucha, make sure your SCOBY settles into its new environment or it could result in your colony of microorganisms dying. In order to avoid contamination, it is also key to first clean and sterilize your Mortier Pilon fermentation crock.
  2. Primary fermentation (2 weeks). Once your SCOBY has settled into its new environment, it can start producing larger quantities of Kombucha. During this first fermentation stage, the SCOBY will feed on sugar and liberate carbon dioxide. The gas will pass through the porous wall of the Mortier Pilon jar, resulting in a still (non-sparkling) drink. With time and as the fermentation process goes on, the drink will become less and less sweet.

 

  1. Secondary fermentation and flavor additions. With this step your Kombucha will become fizzy! You can also incorporate new flavors into your brew. There are lots of ways to get creative with your Kombucha! Feel free to use these flavor pairing ideas: Mango & Apricot, Strawberry & Lemonade, Coconut & Pineapple, Ginger & Turmeric, Apple & Cinnamon, Watermelon & Jalapeño, Raspberry & Blueberry, and Cherry & Vanilla…
  2. Continuous brewing. Once a SCOBY is well-settled in its environment, it can continue to grow healthy and provide you with delicious Kombucha! All it requires is that you never completely empty your jar; this way, you’ll preserve an optimal growth environment for your SCOBY. All you need to do next is repeat the fermentation cycle outlined above, using new sweetened tea. As your SCOBY grows, don’t hesitate to cut pieces from it and share them with your friends and family, thus initiating them to Kombucha home brewing!

Kombucha Benefits and Recipes

Kombucha is a fermented black tea drink. It is achieved through the combination of tea and sugar solution and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (also called SCOBY). Slightly alcoholic and effervescent, this drink became popular thanks to its health benefits, especially its high concentration of vitamins, most of all, B vitamins. Microorganisms such as yeast, or fungi convert organic compounds such as starch or sugars into alcohol or acid during fermentation. The ingestion of drinks or food that have gone through fermentation hold benefits to health as they contain probiotics that are believed to help an enormousness amount of health issues, specifically those related to digestive health. Probiotics can also help to fight against and prevent illness.

Included in this kit are recipes for: Strawberry-banana-kombucha smoothie, Sparkling lemonade, Kombucha & maple vinaigrette, Water kefir and anti-flu Kombucha tonic.
