frozen blueberries added as icecubes
The process is really super simple. Brew tea, add sugar, add "mother/scobe", and let sit . Google "how to make kombucha" and you'll find loads of resources on the topic.
Our book, Kombucha!, suggested that we leave it set for 7-9 days, however we realized a few days in that it wasn't staying warm enough in our kitchen and transferred it onto our seed warming mat. Because of the temperature, we allowed ours to sit for 10 days total before bottling it.
We were able to bottle 3 1/2 bottles from our first batch. We even added blueberries to one of the bottles to try our hand at Kombucha Soda. Once the bottles sit for another 2-3 days we should have a lovely carbonated beverage!
