    Changing size of Kombucha Fermenter - Old Mother Disappeared

    Taking it to the Next Level?

    So, after 8 months I've now managed to scale up to 25L of Kombucha a week and IMO perfected the 2nd stage carbonation process. I stick with a pretty boring ingredient list of Ginger, Turmeric and Lemongrass. All up my 25L batch takes 7 days for the 1st ferment and 5 days for the second ferment...

Do you plan to release the pressure (of course the brew will retain partial CO2) and then rebottle at 1ATM. Intriguing? Of course if your 2nd stage fermenter is at room temp when you...

    To Ginger or not to Ginger?

    Hi all, new member here. So I've been bitten by the "Booch" bug and have a little drama. I've near perfected my recipe, however I'd like to make one more tweak. As I currently add my mashed ginger to the 2nd ferment. Therefore, when I then consume, I have to deal with the straining issue of...
