But anyways, getting back to our yummy flavor, we aren’t going to talk about how to make kombucha today.
Instead we are focusing on how to flavor our Kombucha once it’s made!
What you will need
Ok, first let’s go over our ingredients and supplies.
If you are using the Continuous Brew System this will be really easy!
With it’s easy fill spout, filling bottles is a dream!
I usually use bottles that I have saved from store bought Kombucha, or you can purchase these glass bottles that are the same size.
Also, I want to start experimenting with these swing top glass bottles to see if they will make a more fizzy second ferment.
I will keep you posted with the results!
2. Apple Juice
I use organic pure Apple juice with no added sugar.
If you’d like you can even juice your own apples instead of buying juice!
You want to use cinnamon sticks and not cinnamon powder.
I have experimented with both and the flavor of the Kombucha made with the sticks is much better!
Also, the cinnamon powder floats to the top and creates an unpleasant gritty texture that you don’t want in your Kombucha!
How To Flavor Kombucha
Ok, now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, let’s get started!
1. First add 2-3 ounces of apple juice to your bottles.
This is a matter of preference so feel free to experiment with the amount to find the flavor that you enjoy most!
2. Next add 1/2 a cinnamon stick to your bottles.
3. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha!
Fill it all the way to the top.
4. And finally, you are going to screw on the lids and put your bottles in a dark cabinet.
You want to allow your Kombucha to complete it’s second ferment.
This will take anywhere from one to three days.
You need to leave it for at least a full 24 hours to give the Kombucha time to eat a portion of the natural sugars in the flavorings.
The longer you leave it the more fizzy it will be.
But do not leave it longer than the three days. Leaving it longer than the three days will increase the alcohol content of your Kombucha, making it unsafe for children.
And that’s how you make Apple Cinnamon Kombucha!

M first batch of kombucha and this apple cinnamon was by far my favorite flavor. A word of caution and something I never knew about cinnamon sticks. They expand (duh) while fermenting in the bottle, so now I have 2 bottles with cinnamon sticks which are very stuck in my brand new bottles (?). Must be the blonde coming out, but I never gave this a thought…. just something to think about….
Oh no! I’ve never had this issue because I use wider mouth bottles. But thank you for pointing this out! Hopefully it will prevent others from having the same problem!
Your directions are nice and clear – thank you so much for that. Thinking you know how to do it and doing it are completely different. Your clear and concise directions make it worry free.
