How to Make Your Own Kombucha Culture – SCOBY — 11 Comments

  1. Thanks for this! Being a died in the wool DIYer this recipe appeals to me and has finally pushed me back into Kombucha production (without the online ordering or searching out others with SCOBY).

    • Awesome! Congrats! Makes me wonder where the original culture came from. Is there a fruit or combination that carry the proper bacteria and yeast. For apple cider vinegar, although I haven’t tried it yet, I think all that is needed are the apple skins. Anyway, good luck to you!

  2. Hey Ted,

    I love the recipes, but what I am about to ask ;I hope I don’t disgust you. but have you heard of fermented Urine. I am not a troller; I am only asking because I know fermentation is the cure to a lot of things; I read an article that Fermentation Urine is an natural antibiotic!

    Valuable information on how to make high quality monoatomic (ORMUS) elements from 3-9+ month old aged/fermented urine. Consuming aged urine monoatoms allows one to experience m-state monoatomic consciousness which resonates beyond duality/polarity consciousness and is aligned to harmonic resonances of higher dimensional planes of existence.
    This human biotic (antibiotic) mushroom is the worlds most powerful natural antibiotic medicine of it’s time (2014) & is the male equivalent to the female KOMBUCHA (probiotic) mushroom.
    Fermented urine has friendly beneficial bacteria which promotes healthy skin collagen. The active ingredients in urine that is so good for the skin is urea, urea is the number one ingredient in the cosmetic industry. Urine also contains vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that have been filtered through the liver, kidneys and blood and is highly bio-available (absorb-able) to the body.

  3. The recipes for pro dung your own scoby are finally getting me to take another run at producing my own kombucha. It’s been 4-5 years since I last did kombucha starting with a scoby from a friend. I bought a bottle of GTS Synergy organic kombucha, MysticMango. I have my gallon jar sitting on the counter, covered and ready to start producing a scoby. However, I am hoping it was ok to use a flavored kombucha as a starter.

    • Hi Dianne – I have only just read your question and not sure if you have had any replies yet but in my experience and what I generally use is Rooibos (Red Bush) tea (from South Africa) loose or bags (same amount as black tea) Rooibos does not contain caffeine . I read on another site regarding the making of Kombucha that this is the only other tea that one can use continually without any adverse effect on the SCOBY. I have been making Kombucha this way for about 4 years and prefer the taste to that made with black tea. I live in Namibia and as a result Rooibos is readily available. I hope this helps you.

    • hi, you can use decaffeinated green tea as well. it has higher antibacterial properties than black tea too. the bacteria break down the catechins, and is not affected by the presence of caffeine or not. good luck brewing! 🙂
