Before you begin!
First, if you are new to making your own Kombucha (or even if you are not new;) be sure to check out Why You Should Use The Kombucha Continuous Brew System.
The Continues Brew System is the best and easiest way to make Kombucha. Not only will it save you lots of time, but it will keep you in steady supply of Kombucha that is actually more nutritious! If you haven’t tried it you really should! It will change your life!
Also, be sure to check out The Best Tasting Kombucha Tea Blend! This tea blend makes an amazingly smooth tasting kombucha full of amazing health benefits!
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!
I used this dried chamomile! It made a wonderful kombucha!
If you grow your own chamomile feel free to use that! That would make a great kombucha!
My friend Lisa at Feathers In The Woods has a great post on How To Grow and Harvest Chamomile!
How awesome would it be to say that you not only make your own kombucha, but that you grow your own flavoring:)
Ok, now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, let’s get started!
1. First add 1 tablespoon of dried chamomile 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. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha! Fill it all the way to the top.
3. 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.
Because chamomile does not contain sugars like fruit juices do, I do not let mine sit longer than 24 hours during the second ferment. Otherwise the kombucha will become too vinegary tasting. This is also according to taste, so experiment with the second ferment time to achieve the flavor you love most!
You want to leave it long enough for the flavor and benefits of the chamomile to blend with the kombucha.
Definitely do not leave it longer than 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 Chamomile Kombucha!
