Kombucha Thread

Started hanging out with a health nut girl, and tried her kombucha and it just tasted horrible.

Are they all horrible? Any specific ones you guys love and I should try out? I don't want to call it quits after one sip of one sort but I also don't know where to start.

I think this is possibly where covid19 originated from.

It's basically a form of fungus that's "cultivated" over a period of weeks. The "mother" produces another "spore" for better lack of terminology that can be given to others for their use.

Think of it as a strain of yeast.

I tried it for awhile 20 years ago...making my own. Drunk it for months....and yes they are all awful unless it's mixed with something else which is against purists belief.

I think there are much better things out there for "gut health". But this has been around as a holistic treatment forever and a lot of people swear by it.

It's completely replaced beer for me personally. I do love the occasional grapefruit radler though.

You need to have an acquired taste for tea and fermented food so you won't find it that horrible.

I did this once, the problem is that I was brewing 14gal at a time and drinking a half gallon a day. I think mine had a little more suger than I thought. Measuring initial gravity and final gravity is not an exact science with Kombucha. Gained almost 15lbs before I made the correlation. Went back to beer

Here are two of my recipes if wanting to get started.

3oz oolong gensing
6 gal purified water. 1.5gal used for nute
Steep temp ~195 degrees
Steep time 20min
6 cups Costco organic cane sugar
1 1/4 cup White vinegar
All equipment sanitized with StarSan no rinse
Nute pH: 3.2 , 5.6 before vinegar
Stove temp set to 4, backed down to 3.5 at 200 degrees

Mix:. 4.5gal at 48deg + 1.5gal at 180deg

Mixed pH 3.8, temp 76.5deg

Immediate insertion of fresh Scoby


Secondary Fermentation 1/25/18
pH 3.9
1/28/18 pH 3.3. Bubbly

Started with ~ 5gal of Kombucha
Saved the bottom cone as starter


1/8th cup sugar
1 cup ground fresh ginger (peel and all)


Batch 4 (favorite flavor)

41/8 oz Chinese black leeches

7 cups sugar

Cold steep tea bag in vessel after main 20min steep while mixing sugar

pH 4.0

2/13 pH 3.9, Brix 7.2, SG 1.028

3/11/18 Bottled (bubbly in tank)
pH 3.1, Brix 5.3, FG 1.021, ABV 0.91%

Note that last batch Brix of 5.0 and bubblyness in tank had subsided.

Added 1/8tsp of tumeric to some 16oz bottles
*Needs less turmeric as the powdered taste comes through. Turmeric seems to provide a flavor like pickles.




Nute gets things going in a smaller pot. Steep tea, add sugar, then add to rest of your water. Just make sure cool enough before adding scoby

I don't home brew - but yes moderation is key with kombucha or beer

Do you mix it with vodka or something?

Beer has other qualities than carbonation

You can buy the ones with 3% alcohol first off. Secondly - alcohol being bad for T-levels and not great for gut health has my drinking far less as I age, for health and muscle growth.

Certain kombuchas taste close enough to beer for me to be satisfied.

The ginger peach one I mentioned is only 60cal a bottle - 16g total carbs, mostly from the sugars.

Not too bad if you keep it to less than 1 a day.
