I want to make high alcohol kombucha. I watched a video about it on Youtube which piqued my interest. I was about to buy a bunch of stuff on Amazon but I thought I should get better information from my friends at Homebrew Talk.

What kind of wine yeast should I get?
The youtube video said I need a titration test kit. Would this one work? Is there a better one? I already have a refractometer.

What is a good guide for making high alcohol?

Thanks

You can do it by putting it in an airlock container for the 2nd fermentation, you can either add yeast or just ferment naturally

Regarding hard kombucha, anyone have a recommendation, based on experience, for the best yeast to use, and why? At what point in the 2F is fermax or another yeast nutrient added, and why? How do I know it's even needed? Thanks in advance!

Hi! I’ve done a bit of research on this as well. I’m sure i have more to learn. This is what I’ve found so far.

From my understanding choosing your yeast depends on a few things.

1. Their “yeast’s” ability to activate at specific temperatures. What temperature will you be doing this at?
2. Flavor additions. I’ve learned that different yeasts add different flavors. I think the flavors are mild generally. Not certain.

3. Certain yeasts carbonate more or less. Or they have different carbonation characteristics.

I hope this helps.
