Kombucha brewing

I have been drinking store purchased kombucha for about 5 years now.  I decided to take the plunge and start making it myself.

The basic ingredients and equipment are pretty simple.  I am using a gallon jar, an old cut up t-shirt to cover the mixture, a cup of sugar, a live “scoby” that we got from Oregon Kombucha, Oolong tea, chopsticks to fish out the tea bag when finished, some bottles with built in stoppers and a digital pH tester (not shown).

When the brewing process is finished, I will take some more pictures and post the results in another blog post.

All ready to go!
