    @Joe do you know what is kombucha?

  • Alex's avatar

    Kombucha (also tea mushroom, tea fungus, or Manchurian mushroom when referring to the culture; Latin name Medusomyces gisevii)is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black tea drink commonly consumed for its purported health benefits. Sometimes the beverage is called kombucha tea to distinguish it from the culture of bacteria and yeast

    Second fermentation is the process through which you flavor your brew and put it into a sealed container, which traps carbonation into the liquid. It typically takes 2-4 days, but can take longer.

    It’s essentially bottle conditioning (similar to how in beer and champagne-making, you add a little bit of priming sugar, then seal it up to let yeasts eat up the sugar and convert it into carbon dioxide). That’s what makes it fizzy. In the case of kombucha, that added sugar typically comes from fruit.

    @Joe so it is a couple of ways to start it. You might have a friend who has some kombucha (Scoby) and you can get the little piece from them or you can go in the store and buy kombucha in a bottles and start growing from zero it will take a while
