So regarding temperature, I've been corresponding with Len Porzio, the author of that guide I
linked you to, "Kombucha, the Balancing Act". I told him about my Arduino controlled kombucha

I'm jealous by how sparkling clear your kombucha is. Just curious, but what are you using to
check the pH levels? Has it been calibrated? I was thinking getting one of those cheaper meters
you can fin...

That's actually a great idea. Do you submerge the entire heater + cord into the kombucha? I
guess I'd be worried if the materials they use are food safe or not... What temperature do you
keep it at?

HERE IT IS.The reason I made this is that it turns out my basement apartment doesn't get much
above 71°F, so I figured this would give the brew a nice boost. This is mainly just for fun.
After doing a...

Also, what about this just for the purpose of dispensing: Use a smaller CO2 tank, maybe even a
paintball gun tank (which are easily had for $15 used for a 20 oz). My spunding valve will have

Should you leave the soda out, unchilled after the initial carbonating period, it'll continue
to eat the sugars (decreasing sweetness), and increase co2. This includes chilling, serving and

I have a dumb question though. Since you aren't force carbing, I assume you don't have a co2
tank or faucets. So, how is the root beer going to be served? It needs some co2 to "push" it
out of the keg...

So it seems like a good route would be to use a spunding valve. The problem is that I can't
find any pressure relief valves that are rated 50 psi or higher. Most ones discussed here only
go to 20. Cou...

Thanks for the quick input, guys. I would say force carbonation would be a step I could take a
bit later after this becomes more feasible to me financially. Also, the idea of brewing with
yeast seems ...

Forgive me for my newbness, but I've been wanting to have finer control over the root beer I've
been brewing. Bigger batches make sense to my situation rather than brewing in individual
bottles. So, t...
