Today we’re going to talk about the question, can I eat the Kombucha mushroom or culture?

Can I eat kombucha Mother?

Credits to the owner of the video

We all know that drinking the Kombucha tea is great for us, but can you physically eat and digest the culture? The quick answer is yes and don’t worry, doing so will not make you a Kombucha cannibal. Just look at home this cute little girl on the left, snack on the Kombucha mother like it’s the best thing on earth.

Why would you eat Kombucha SCOBY? It’s slimy!

Professor Lindner back in 1917, ( I was not born so I wasn’t there) claims you could eat the culture, in addition though, to the Kombucha tea for two reasons:

  1.  You can get Kombucha extract from the culture, not from the tea. In other words, squeezing the juice out of the culture has some beneficial properties to it that is a little different than the Kombucha tea. So that’s one way and you can literally just chomp on it. I’ve done some other videos on wheat grass, different than Kombucha, but literally, if you don’t have an expensive juicer, you could just chomp on the wheat grass to extract the wheat grass juice.
  2. Similar along those lines, in additional the slippery mass, or the culture is believed to, in small amounts, help and soothe the intestines, so a little laxative effect.

Now does this mean that you should eat the culture? My Take

Me personally, I’ve eaten the culture not on purpose. Sometimes when you drink your Kombucha tea sometimes you’ll find in raw, real, living Kombucha that’s unpasteurized. Can i get kombucha scoby

You’ll see a new culture, itty, bitty culture or those slimy things forming, so I’ve ingested those things. But do I take a huge culture and take a fork and knife and begin chomping and eating it like a steak dinner? Me personally no.

I’d rather get benefits of the stuff another way. Or other fiber supplements I would probably myself gravitate towards, but this video is important because two things you should point out:

One, when you are drinking your Kombucha tea and you happen to ingest one of those cultures, the small cultures, fine, relax, you’re all good. You may be a little extra relaxed, so to speak,by going to the bathroom a little later on, and if you do choose to eat a culture, you can, there’s nothing wrong.

I would start out with a small amount, I don’t know if it’s the best personal use of the culture, I’d much rather use it to make more Kombucha tea from, and a little extra bonus, makes a fantastic chew toy for your pet. To do that simply let the culture sit out, air dry it so it becomes a little leathery and you have the best chew toy for your pet.

But if you really feel a little bit adventurous, go on. There’s nothing wrong with eating it. It actually tastes like a pickled pear. If you can get past the texture of it, which makes most people gag, then go on and have fun! Same goes if your kids would want to try it. It’s better than giving them unhealthy processed food.

Hello! Welcome to the 18th episode of the Kombucha Podcast!

The first day I brewed my own Kombucha, I didn’t know I would become so passionate about it that I would talk about it to every person I meet let alone make this website. Making Kombucha tea has been a hobby, or an obsession/addiction as some people would say, since then. That’s one of the pros of making Kombucha. When you’re bored, you have a hobby you can go back to. Or when you’re out of town, you have something to look forward to at home. Seriously, when I’m out own town, I think about my brews. “Is Scobianna (I know someone who named her SCOBY Scobianna) having fun without me? I hope she’s not partying too much and start an explosion”.

Making Kombucha tea at home keeps you busy and excited. That’s one thing. But what about the other perks and most importantly the cons? Let’s discuss that by clicking the play button below.

Candida and Kombucha

A lot people ask me how can I incorporate Kombucha if I have Candida; wouldn’t that be bad? Kombucha has yeast in it and candida is a problem with too much yeast in our body.

Let’s look at this. The yeast found in Kombucha, is not the yeast that we want to get rid of. So just like those probiotics, probacterias and bad bacterias,  there are good yeast and bad yeast. So the question doesn’t lie, is the yeast in Kombucha beneficial or non beneficial for a candida diet or somebody trying to eliminate candida?

The yeast that can be found in the Kombucha culture is called the Schizosacharomycodes. This type of yeast is not in the family of yeast that can be found in Candida.

It’s more of the sugar in Kombucha.

Kombucha does have sugar in it, a heck of a lot more to start, but the amount goes down as the fermentation goes on. There will still be sugarIs Kombucha Good for Candida? in that Kombucha even when you bottle it. so here’s what to do if you want to incorporate Kombucha into your candida eliminating diet:

Overly ferment your tea

The longer the sugars going to be broken down into fructose and glucose and then the more that glucose will be converted into all the organic acids, a little bit of alcohol and CO2 fizz and things like that. The longer you ferment, the more  it will be converted, hence the less sugar remains.

The way to do it isn’t to remove the sugar, it’s to overly ferment your Kombucha tea and that sugar will be reduced.

If your Candida is very strong and you need to have no sugar in your diet, at least, let’s say, for the first couple weeks, I would recommend using something like our Kombucha sugar-free extract, which eliminates all sugar from your Kombucha.Consume your Kombucha on an empty stomach, I would say first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. And this way, your body will be able to absorb the Kombucha, rather than compete, meaning that your digestive system only has so much work available to it.

Is kombucha good for candida

Yes, you can take a few sips… just a few sips for now

If you’re eating other foods with your Kombucha, it might not be able to digest the Kombucha and that little bit of sugar might feed the Candida. You want your digestive system to use the sugar found in Kombucha for good stuff. Our digestive system and our Candida is competing for that small amount of sugar, if we doing have any food in our system, it’s better for our digestive system to use the nutrition and the sugar found in Kombucha.

Start off slow

I can not stress this enough. What do I mean by that? I mean, especially on an empty stomach, start off with one ounce, do a shot of Kombucha tea. It’s better to be a turtle in this situation, slow and steady, than a rabbit. Overly ferment your Kombucha tea, drink it on an empty stomach so it’s not competing with other foods you’re digesting and start off very, very slow in the amount that you are consuming. If you don’t see any bad reactions, increase your Kombucha consumption. Just let your body adapt to the new yeast it is getting.

Flat Kombucha, what do I do?

A lot of people have been asking, emailing, writing in this question, figured I’d do a quick video on it to solve your problem. That’s what I’m all about, making solutions. You can find more solutions to your Kombucha questions in our Youtube Channel.

Producing flat kombucha tea is normal. Many people just like it as it is. I like it, but I like experimenting and enhancing my booch, too. And don’t you just love it when you open your bottle and pour it in your glass, you can hear the fizz and see the bubbles? I love it! I even think it’s therapeutic. (Don’t worry. My doctor said I’m normal. I’m just a tea dork.)

If you have flat Kombucha, the first question I would ask you is: “what is your brewing process after you ferment, so if you’re using a continuous brewing system like this,your Kombucha is fermented, and now what? The thing is, when I’m enjoying my Kombucha from the spicket and drinking it, I don’t have the fizz. An easy solution is continue to enjoy your Kombucha from the spicket, right from the tap, that’s awesome, and if you want to experiment with bottling your Kombucha, that gives you the opportunity to get some fizz going.

Why? Well, the fizz of Kombucha is really from the yeast, the anaerobic part of the yeast converting the sugar into, continuing to convert into
ethanol, which is alcohol, then the bacteria converts the ethanol a little bit, into good acid, gives it that vinegary taste and CO2.

Now this does happen sometimes in your brewing system, or when you’re Fizzy Kombuchabrewing Kombucha in a pickle jar even, but when you’re brew
ing Kombucha
, what happens? The top is a breathable top, right? You’re covering it with a paper towel or Muslim cloth or whatever you choose to do, and that CO2, while it might be being produced, it’s being lost as well through a breathable
container. When you bottle your
Kombucha, you are still getting that CO2, a little more of that CO2, because that’s when it really starts acting, but now the CO2 can’t escape because it’s bottled, it’s topped off.

Flat Kombucha Help 1: Do a Secondary Fermentation

So yes, my first advice then would be, do a secondary fermentation in a bottle, what do I mean by that? Well not only are you bottling Kombucha tea, but you’re leaving your Kombucha tea at room temperature, at room temperature, even above room temperature, what I mean by that is 70 degrees and higher, you can’t go wrong with 76 degrees either guys.

So if you live in a warmer climate, great, if you want to use your Kombucha heating mat, so then use on the bottles, greater, but people that I’ve spoken to say that, well I go to bottle my Kombucha tea and still no fizz. I asked them exactly what they’re doing, and they say they bottle their Kombucha tea and then put it in the refrigerator. When you put something in the refrigerator, especially Kombucha, you’re pretty much cutting off the activity of the yeast and the bacteria, so they’re not dead, but they’re not active anymore. The yeast is not continuing to convert that sugar.

Flat Kombucha Help 2: Mix it with Club Soda

Flat Kombucha

This used to be flat. But I added ginger and now it’s fizzy!

The second tip is to add your flat Kombucha to some club soda, boom! You got fizzy Kombucha!

Flat Kombucha Help 3: An extra sugar

The last tip is to introduce a little extra sugar and specifically glucose. When we talk about sugar, we’re talking about fructose and glucose, that’s sucrose, regular sugar, or even evaporated cane juice sugar, gets broken down into fructose and glucose, that takes a little time so what we want to do is, we really are interested in the glucose part of the sugar, especially when we talk about fizziness. So you can just pick up some dextrose and glucose, it’s kind of the same thing, and add a little bit, and when I mean a little bit, I mean a little bit, I’m talking about an eighth a teaspoon per 16 ounce bottle.

Flat Kombucha Help : Add some extra source of sugar

Adding other extra source of sugar can also give your kombucha more fizz. Ginger root, raisins and craisins work really well. Plus, it will give your k-tea some flavor. Let it ferment for 2-3 days and see if that gives you fizz.

So, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed the video! If you have tried any of these flat kombucha help, let me know how it turned out in the comment section below!

Happy brewin’,

Since I started this website, I have been getting a lot of questions from Kombucha drinkers who want to brew their own kombucha tea at home. One of their most frequently asked question is “Can I get drunk from Kombucha?” and my answer is always: It depends.

Sure mix Kombucha with lots of hard alcohol and you will get drunk. Seriously, we have a whole recipe section on our site showing lots of different recipes, some of which contain alcohol. Our world famous Kombucha-rita is an example of that, but in terms of just home brewing Kombucha tea, you would have to drink a lot of it.

Can I Get Drink from Kombucha?

Yes, babies can drink Kombucha. But only a little amount.

Alcohol is between 0.05-1%

To give you an idea, home brewed Kombucha tea, again there’s so many different variables, but if you’re following a basic Kombucha recipe like we have on our site, you’re looking at depending on the temperature, depending how much sugar and other variables, how active your yeasts are, how long you let your secondary bottle ferment.

Also, if you do a secondary ferment and flavor it with fruits, herbs or any other flavorings, that will also affect the alcohol content of your Kombucha. Some fruits, like grapes and pineapple will add more sugar which will convert to alcohol; especially when they get oxygen.

Even with all that, you’re looking at 0.05-1%. Now could you get double that? Sure, but then you’re looking at 2%, a beer is between 4-6%, that means even the greatest, highest alcohol content of Kombucha when you’re not intentionally trying to raise the alcohol, you would still need to drink about 3 or 4 of them to equal a single beer.

So then why does everyone feel good off of Kombucha?2 Kombucha Jars

I know for myself, the first time that I drank Kombucha, I had the same question. Because I felt like I was drunk, and not the bad like I was drunk, like you feel invincible, life is awesome, the world is great, smiling, drunk, and the only way I came to terms with that is what are some other things is your life that make you feel like that? I know for myself, when I do yoga, play dodge ball, hang out with my friends, go for a walk, I hug someone I really love, I feel incredible

The thing is that our body, for many of us, myself included, has not had much probiotics, digestive floor, organic acid, vitamins B’s, that you can take in a bottle, is received quicker and will be absorbed in such a way that’s natural. You haven’t had that in a while, so when we get it all at once, we feel pretty freaking good. So to answer your question can I get drunk off Kombucha? Sure, but you’re going to have to work really hard to do so, like drinking a gallon in one sitting.

I don’t like the “drunk feeling” after drinking Kombucha, what should I do?

Now if you don’t want to have the “drunk feeling” after you drink some Kombucha tea, I suggest you only take 4 oz. first. Then once you get used to it and you don’t get that effect anymore, drink more and work your way up. Like I always say, “listen to your body”. Your body will tell you when to take a break and when to go on.

Happy brewin’,

I’m an Energyball

does kombucha give you energy?Does Kombucha give you energy? I am living proof that Kombucha gives you energy. My Jiaogulan Thailand Adventure is just one evidence that I am an energyball.  To be fair though, I was already pretty energetic before drinking Kombucha, but yes in my opinion and opinion of a couple thousands of people that have emailed me through the years of doing what I do, yes Kombucha gives you energy. Now let’s look at the scientific reasons why.

Kombucha Contains Vitamins & Minerals That Give You Energy

Does kombucha give you energyWell Kombucha has vitamins and minerals, does it have the same amount of vitamins and minerals found in Mega 10X Bottle-O-Vitamins, with the big purple pill and you have to take 6 of them and they sell for $20 a bottle, does it have the same amount?

No, not nearly, in fact the vitamin B levels in Kombucha are almost negligible, by that I mean pretty small, but one of the thing I always speak about with Kombucha, is that I look at Kombucha as a vehicle, what do I mean by that?

Kombucha is a Vehicle?

Well anything that is astringent tends to enter our blood stream quicker, anything that’s also carbonated also speeds up the absorption rate, things that are naturally good, like probiotics, like fermented foods, unpasteurized, raw foods, get into our body quicker. Well if those things get into our body quicker and they’re bringing along the vitamin B’s and the minerals and a huge amount of other organic, healthy acids, don’t you think those things also get into our body quicker?

So our body has a chance to absorb it before we piss out florescent neon yellow, a lot of those pills may have a thousand percentage of vitamin b12, but how much of it really gets used by the body?

The Real Kombucha Energy Question

So does Kombucha give you energy, my answer is yes, the question is, have you tried Kombucha? And does it give you energy? Let me know in the comment section below!

And if kombucha does give you energy, is it too much energy?  In other words, I know some people who drink kombucha and they are up all night.  If you are one of those people and think it is because kombucha is traditionally made with caffeinated tea leaves, you could try making your kombucha tea at home with a caffeine free alternative such as Rooibos tea.

Rooibos comes from a South African red bush and although it is not tea in the truest sense (btw a fancy name for tea is camellias senensis), it does share several common traits that are similiar such as tannins that the kombucha culture can use to convert to nitrogen to ferment into kombucha, only this time with out the caffeine.

If you are new to making kombucha tea at home, you can learn how you can brew your own Kombucha tea at home and stay energized throughout the day by going to this link.

  • Question: Can I make my own Kombucha tea at home?
    • Answer: Absolutely! Anyone can make their own kombucha tea.
  • Question: What do I need to make Kombucha tea at home?
    • Answer: (1 Gallon Kombucha Recipe) You will need Kombucha Mushrooms (also called as SCOBY and Culture), 1 cup of Kombucha mushroom starter, 1 cup organic sugar, 4 to 6 tea bags (if using premium loose whole tea leaf, use 4-6 tsp), a breathable cover (can be handkerchief or paper towel. Just make sure there are no holes, so the fruit flies can pass through), rubber bands to hold up the cover, stainless steel pot, a kombucha brewing vessel (could be a porcelain jar, an oak jar, a stainless steel jar or a food grade platic jar). If you get our Kombucha Continuous Brewing System, you get all these materials and ingredients.
  • Question: I already have the materials and ingredients needed, how should I get started?
    • Answer: To brew Kombucha, here are the things you need to do:
      1. Boil 4 cups of water.
      2. Pour the boiled water to your Kombucha brewing vessel. Then add tea bags and let it sit for 5 minutes.
      3. Remove the tea bags or strain if you’re using loosen tea.
      4. Add sugar to the tea and stir to dissolve.
      5. Let the tea cool down.
      6. Add water until the vessel is 3/4 full.
      7. When the water has completely cooled down, add your culture. (Make sure your hands are clean.)
      8. Cover with the breathable piece of cloth or paper using the rubber bands.
      9. Look for a slightly warm, ventilated and dark place like your open closet or kitchen counter and leave it there for 5-10 days.
      10. Do the Happy Dance. If you like to sing, feel free. :)
      11. On the 5th day, get a straw and gently insert it to the vessel. Make sure it doesn’t touch the SCOBY. Then taste. If it’s too sour, reduce your brewing cycle next time. If it’s too sweet, leave it and taste it the next day. If it tastes perfect, you can drink it or do a second ferment to add flavor! You will also know it’s ready if the pH level is 3.0, which help in avoiding pathogens or mold.
      12. Enjoy drinking the plain Kombucha tea or continue to second ferment (2F) and adding flavors.
  • Question: How long do I have to wait to taste my Kombucha?
    • Answer:The truth is, there’s no definite answer. Because it will have to depend on the strength of the starter tea you used, the type of tea, the location where you stored your kombucha, the temperature, the number of SCOBY you used and if you left it undisturbed or not. Rule of the thumb: If you are in tropical countries and used two or more SCOBYs, taste it on the 3rd day. If you are not, taste on the 5th day.
  • Question:How do you know if you produced a good batch of Kombucha tea?
    • Answer: If it tastes sweet and a bit sour and it doesn’t have mold, it’s a good batch.
  • Question: What’s the correct temperature for Kombucha tea?
    • Answer: Between 73°-83°F (23°-28°C) is about right. If it’s winter, you can use a Kombucha heating mat.
  • Question:There are some stringy particles in my brew, what are they?
    • Answer: Don’t worry, it’s probably just yeast buildup.
  • Question:There’s a film-like layer growing inside my brew, what is it?
    • Answer: Congrats! You just became a Kombucha Mama or Papa. You can use this SCOBY to brew another batch of Kombucha or just keep it in the vessel. You can also share it with your friends.
  • Question:Help! I’m worried it might be mold that I’m seeing in my brew. What does mold look like?
    • Answer: You can send us a picture at info@getkombucha.com so we can examine.Mold look blue-greenish or blackish and fuzzy. Like the usual mold that you see.
  • Question:What should I do if my Kombucha has mold?
    • Answer: Sorry, there’s no other answer but to throw it away. :(
  • Question:I want a fizzy Kombucha tea, how do I make it?
    • Answer:If you want to make a fizzy kombucha, do a second fermentation also called as 2F and add flavor to your tea. The second fermentation will give fizz and it will be fizzier if you add flavors. To do that, remove the SCOBY (culture or mushroom) from the vessel and secure it into another clean vessel to start another brew. Harvest the tea and pour it into your bottles. Then add the flavor that you want, it could be fresh fruit juice, dried herbs, or fruit extracts, then put on the bottle lids and let it sit for 4-5 days. On the 4th day open the bottle carefully and you’d get fizzy kombucha tea. Note: The fizziness will depend on the type of flavor you used. Some fruits will produce too fizzy tea while others don’t. Watch this video and this one, too to learn how to bottle and flavor the kombucha tea to make it fizzy.
  • Question: How do I flavor my kombucha tea?
    • Answer: To flavor the Kombucha tea, you need your flavoring ingredient. You can use fresh fruit, fruit juice, frozen fruit, dried herbs and spices, seeds or extracts. If you’re using whole fruits, smoosh or squeeze the fruits a little to extract the flavor and toss it on to your bottled tea. The amount of fruits you add will depend on how strong you want the kombucha tea to be. Rule of the thumb: Fruits should be 10-30% of the amount of the kombucha tea you’re flavoring. If you’re using juice, add 10-20%. If you’re using dried herbs and spices, believe in the power of your taste. Just do the taste test. For extracts, start with 1/4 tsp.
  • Question: I don’t have sugar available right now, can I use honey in brewing kombucha tea?
    • Answer: Good question! We don’t really recommend using honey because it has bacteria that may not be good to the bacteria from the kombucha culture and may eventually cause the culture to die. Harald Tietze in his book, “The Miracle Fungus”, mentioned Mr. Perko using honey in fermenting Kombucha tea. However, he uses it only during the second fermentation. Also, a temperature of 83°F (28°C) is very important when using honey.
  • Question: Which is better, green tea or black tea?
    • Answer: Neither. Both teas are great in their own way. Many people mix them together.
  • Question:  What type of sugar should I use in making your own kombucha tea?
    • Answer: You can use any type of sugar except for molasses, stevia (leaves or liquid), agave nectar, coconut sugar, rice sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, maple syrup, or any artificial sweetener like aspartame, saccharine, xylitol, etc.
  • Question:  What fruits and herbs are great for flavoring my kombucha tea ?
    • Answer: Anything you can think of! The best thing about making your own kombucha is you can experiment and make your own flavors! But if you’re a first time brewer and you don’t have enough culture to experiment with, use foolproof flavoring ingredient such as Ginger, so you will not waste any of your beloved SCOBY. You can use different types of berries, mangoes, peaches, oranges, lemon, apple, banana, watermelon, chia seeds, sunflower seeds and many more.
  • Question: What type of jars/bottles can I use when fermenting Kombucha tea?
    • Answer: We always recommend glass jars and bottles in fermenting Kombucha tea, especially when the SCOBY is in there. The culture don’t get along very well with the chemicals found in metal and plastic bottles. You can use metal, as long as it’s stainless steel and plastic if it is food grade. Your culture shouldn’t have a contact with metal and plastic though. When bottling for second fermentation, we suggest glass bottles, too, to produce fizzy kombucha tea.
  • Question: Can I use any type of water to brew Kombucha tea?
    • Answer: We recommend Spring and Distilled water. If you don’t have, you can use tap water but boil it first to kill all the bad chemicals that can be detrimental to you and the culture’s health.
  • Question: Heeelllppp!! Fruit Flies are attacking my kombucha brew! What should I do?
    • Answer: You should get a fruit fly trap. There are many ways to make a trap. One thing we do is something like this Kombucha fruit fly trapThat’s a little kombucha tea in a small glass jar and a cardboard. Some people also use liquid detergent soap instead of a little kombucha tea. Or you can use mint.
  • Question: Where should I get my kombucha SCOBY?
    • Answer: You should get it from us!:) Kombucha culture is sensitive and if it has not been done right, it could go bad. Make sure you get it from a trusted source (eheeeem).
  • Question: I have heard from other kombucha brewers about Continuous brewing, how can I do it?
    • Answer: Many seasoned home brewers choose continuous brewing because its convenient. It is easy to maintain and you can produce a lot of Kombucha tea. To do continuous brewing, you need a system kit such as these. The fermentation process is still the same. However, you need to increase the volume of the ingredients because that’s the essence of continuous brewing. After you’ve set it up, you just have to wait for the culture to completely ferment, then you can harvest the produce. When you have a continuous brewing system going on, you can drink kombucha tea anytime you want to. You just need to feed it regularly with the starter and sweet tea. Here’s a more comprehensive way to do this.
  • Question:  Can I check/play with/stir Kombucha everyday during the brewing process?
    • Answer: We don’t recommend doing that because it will disturb the brewing process causing the fermentation to slow down.
  • Question: Kombucha pH testing. Is it important?
    • Answer: Yes, because when the pH level of your Kombucha is on the right level (average is 3.0) it helps to avoid getting pathogens and mold. Watch this video of Dave explaining pH levels of Kombucha.
  • Question:  Is the pH level of Kombucha important?
    • Answer: Yes, it is important that the pH of your Kombucha is on the ideal level, because it will help the culture to fight against E. coli, Salmonella typhi & M. canis. Think of the Kombucha mushroom as Superman and pH level as its kryptonite; its source of power.
  • Question:  What’s the ideal pH level for Kombucha?
    • Answer: The ideal ph level for Kombucha tea is 3.5 – 2.5. This is when your booch tastes just right and safe from mold and other bad bacteria.

How to make a Kombucha ginger, using a Kombucha ginger tea recipe?

Ginger is one of my favorite kombucha flavors. Not only because it is super delicious and ginger has lots of essential vitamins and minerals, but also because it produces a great head (read:fizz)! When people do not get enough fizz on their Kombucha, I always tell them to add Ginger to their second fermentation and it always works. How cool is that,? If you want a fizzy bubbly Kombucha goodness, try this Kombucha ginger recipe.

Kombucha ginger tea recipe is pretty straight forward, brew kombucha tea normally how you would following any of our recipes on our site Kombucha Ginger Tea Recipeor maybe your neighbor gave you a recipe and when you go to bottle your tea, you can do a number of things: You could take fresh ginger root and slice a quarter size worth of ginger. Now it’s better to do thinner slices, more thinner slices than just a big chunk, because you want surface area, more surface area the more available the ginger.Also, it will be easier for you to remove these tiny bits from the bottle when it’s time to clean.

So we’re talking about the glucose in ginger and the fructose in ginger, that will be readily available, more surface area will be able to convert, yeast will have at it a lot easier.It is the yeast when we’re bottling that is still going to be active, the bacteria gets shut off when there’s no air, when we’re going straight to an anaerobic fermentation, the bacteria pretty much is done and the anaerobic yeasts are done, but the, I’m sorry the aerobic yeasts are done, but the anaerobic yeast, the yeasts that don’t require oxygen are still working and they will still convert the newly introduced sugar from this ginger root into (drum roll), a little CO2, a little bit of alcohol and lots of goodies, lots of good stuff.

Ginger to use: Fresh, Dried, Candied or Juiced?

You could use sliced ginger, you could also use dry ginger or even a ginger candy. If you are using fresh, Kombucha Ginger Teadried and candied ginger to flavor
your Kombucha tea, start 10-30% of ginger and 70-90% of Kombucha. Now if you are going to use ginger candy be careful. Because it’s naturally, probably going to have powdered sugar and stuff like that and this will give more fizz to your booch as the SCOBY will consume the sugar. So you just want to make sure that you will bottle your Kombucha very well to avoid getting explosions.

My personal favorite is to use some ginger juice. You can buy some ginger juice from your grocery stores or if you already own a juicer, just take some ginger roots and dump it on to your juicer. If you are going to use this route, use about  80-90% kombucha tea and 10-20% ginger juice.

Once you’re done flavoring your Kombucha to make a Kombucha Ginger tea, you can drink it straight away or you can do a second fermentation. If you want to do a second fermentation, leave the bottles in room temperature for 3 or more days. (Just a side tip: If you have a cooler or a bucket, put your bottles of Kombucha there. So that if it explodes, it won’t hurt anyone and cause mess to your house.) After 3 days, do a taste test. If it tastes great, they are ready!
