The large batch was on the weak side. Am concerned as the 2nd fermentation from previous week is still not ready. We used pureed pineapple using 1/3 cup and 2 tsp of sugar to make 15 bottles.
The medium batch was very strong. We made 8 bottles w 1/2 Tbsp of sugar.
The large batch was perfect, not too sweet or strong. We used fresh squeezed orange juice, 1/3 cup to 1 Tbsp of sugar making 14 bottles.
The medium batch was also perfect. We added 1/2 Tbsn sugar and made 9 bottles.
It’s been 8 days and the orange 2nd fermentation batch is still not fizzy and tastes very sweet. Will wait another day or two.
The large batch was on the weak side. We made 14 bottles using fresh strawberries 1/3 cup and 2 tsp of sugar.
The medium batch was very strong. We made 10 bottles of plain butch w 1/2 Tbsp of sugar.
We pulled the strawberry after day 1, day 2 but was on flat side. We ended up refrigerating at 2.5 days and it was perfect w enough fizz and not explosive.
The large batch was weak and sweet – not sure why as it was a very hot week and a beautiful giant scoby formed. We used a different tangerine juice not sure if it will be as good. We used 1/3 cup juice, 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 13 bottles.
The medium batch was also oddly weak. We used 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 9 bottles.
The tangerine took 7 days to fizz. It tasted good at 5 but lacked fizz.
The large batch was slightly strong but still sweet. This time we used pre-made fresh squeezed grapefruit using 1/3 cup juice, 1/2 Tbsp sugar. We made 14 bottles.
The medium batch seemed slightly strong. We added 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 8 bottles.
Grapefruit was pulled 3 days and came out with very little pop but a good fizz.
The large batch was on the sweet side and not very strong. Greg said he did not transfer a lot of the SCOBY from previous batch which affected the strength of the kombucha. We used tangerine juice and added 1/3 cup, 1/2 Tbsp sugar to each bottles. We made 14 bottles.
The medium batch was just right with more punch than the large batch. We made 9 bottles of plain with 1/2 Tbsp sugar.
Tangerine was pulled at 3 days and was just right.
