So, I'm trying again. I'm on my second brew. I have my second ferment going with my first brew. Right now we have grape Jun and grape Kombucha, as well as one grape/blueberry Kombucha bottled up.
Make 3 quarts of boiling water. Dissolve 3/4-1 cup organic sugar (or reg sugar, or honey but not raw) in the water. Put 4-6 tea bags in. This can be green tea, black tea, or any tea that doesn't have oils added. Let it steep until the tea is cooled. Remove the tea bags, pour the tea into a gallon jar, add in your scoby, and cover the top of the jar with a towel or coffee filter. Then you wait 7-10 days. When it's where you like it, pour all but 2-4 cups of the kombucha liquid out, and start over.
The kombucha you poured out can be drunk right away, or you can bottle it with fruit to make flavored "pop".
So, I'm currently trying again. We shall see how it goes. Let's hope I don't have any exploding bottles. Ha ha ha
