Make Better Kombucha for just pennies a bottle! Are you ready to up your Booch Craft game?
My #1 tip if you want to make really good Kombucha: STOP skimping on the ingredients. Tea is the key ingredient that creates the real flavors in your brew. You need to use enough, and you need to at least buy quality tea. I know, you can use Lipton or Noname black tea bags, and some people like it just fine, but it's literally a matter of pennies in difference to make MUCH BETTER Kombucha. I choose to use Organic Loose Leaf Tea, because an entire batch only costs me about .50 cents for a high quality loose leaf tea. Using Organic Sugar costs me another .50 cents. If I were to use cheap white sugar and cheap tea, I could save .50 cents per batch. I would use regular white sugar if I needed to save a few dollars, but I can't see myself going back to old tea bags.
I also choose to use reverse osmosis water, which I pay about 15 cents per liter for or .45 cents per batch. My total cost of ingredients for 3 Liters of Kombucha is about $1.45. That's 24. cents per 16 oz bottle around here. A little fruit juice or sliced fruit added to second ferment will add a few cents or more, depending on what you are using, but it's easy to see the advantage of making your own vs. buying it. I make about 20-30 batches per month so my family has as much as we want to drink, and I could actually save $15-20 over the whole month, and if I was in a desperate time financially, I might actually do this, but it really is worth the added cost if you can swing it.
If you are new to brewing or looking to up your Bucha brewing game, you are really going to want to save this page. I’ve got serious answers to many of the anecdotal brewing details that you will see circulating the internet, and it might surprise you how easy it is to make bad Kombucha, but with the right information, you can make REALLY GOOD KOMBUCHA at home. For pennies on the dollar vs. store bought. I literally make mine for about .25 cents a bottle, and it tastes better than anything you can buy. …OK, some of the local Kombucha micro-breweries are making quality stuff, available freshly made for $6 a bottle or so, and it’s great because they care about crafting incredible stuff. I love discovering local craft brewed flavors, almost as much as I like creating them.
