We brew 34 grams of Tie Kwan Yin Oolong in a gallon of distilled water. After steeping 30 minutes we transfer it to our big jar with 1 2/3 cups of sugar. After letting it cool we add 1/2 (to 1) additional cups of water, 2 cups of starter buch and transfer the SCOBY. Our fermentation time this time of year is eight days.
