10/17/20, Plain

We waited 9 days vs usual 8 days because we forgot :). It was fine a bit strong but not bad. We used 1 tsp sugar and made 20 bottles.

10/08/20, Passionfish

We let the 1st fermentations go to 9 days (instead of the usual 8) as after testing it the large seemed weak. The extra day helped and it could’ve gone even another day.

We used the large batch to make the passionfruit. I scooped out over 100 passionfruit to make this passion fruit batch. I added 3 squirts of sugar water – maybe too much as it was already sweet. For first time I left the seed in adding 1/4 cup and 1/2 Tbsp sugar per bottle. We were able to make 10 bottles.

With the remaining kombucha we made plain adding 1 tsp sugar making 11 bottles.

The passionfruit was pulled at 3 days and it was a tad explosive but manageable.

9/29/20, Plain

We waited an extra 1 day as the SCOBYs in both medium and large batches weren’t that developed and the kombucha was weak. Waiting the extra day was helpful.

Both the medium and large batch were better with the extra day and were strong but not overpowering.

We made 18 bottles w 1 tsp sugar and 1 large bottle w 1/2 Tbsp sugar.

9/20/20, Raspberry

We did another batch of raspberry kombucha. Both the large and medium batches were strong but not overly vinegary. The medium was a tad stronger.

For the raspberry we made 12 bottles with 1/2 Tbsp of sugar and we made 11 bottles of plain with 1 tsp sugar.

We pulled the raspberry at 3 days and it was good. No explosions – a little on the less fizzy side but it will continue to ferment in fridge.

9/12/20, Plain

We waited an extra 2 days (10 days total) as the large batch was not ready the medium batch was weak. They were better after two extra days.

We made 19 bottles of plain 2it both batches adding 1 tsp sugar.

9/2/20, Raspberry

The large batch was fizzy on the strong side but not too much. We made 12 bottles of raspberry kombucha using 1/3 cup pureed raspberries, 1/2 tbsp sugar.

Medium batch seemed just right we used 1 tsp sugar and made 8 regular sized bottles and 2 large.

We pulled the raspberries at 3.5 days slightly eruptive but manageable.
