The medium batch seemed a bit weak tea-wise but had a bit of vinegary bite with a little sweetness. We used 1/3 cup pink grapfruit juice, 1 Tbsp sugar and made 12 bottles
The large batch was a good strength teawise with a perfect sweetness (not too much or too little). We used 2 tsp sugar and made 11 1/2 bottles.
Grapefruit was pulled at 4 days and it had barely a pop but had good fizz.
The medium batch was very strong and vinegary. We used 1/3 cup tangerine juice, 1 Tbsp sugar and made 12 bottles.
The large batch was strong and a little less vinegary. We made 9 bottles (plus a tester jar) w 2 tsp sugar.
The tangerine was pulled at 4 days and had barely a pop but had decent fizz.
The large batch was a good strenth – not too strong or weak. We made 12 tangerine dreams with 1/3 cup tangerine juice and 1 Tbsp sugar.
We made another 11 bottles of plain with the medium batch (just right) w 1/2 Tbsp sugar.
We pulled the tangerine at 4 days and it was good – not much pop but a little fizz. It will continue to ferment in the fridge.
Well, I really loved last week’s grapefruit kombucha it was dry with fizz and perfectly lovely. So, this week it’s grapefruit again!
We used the large batch (by accident cuz we were fighting and G wanted to go up and do his hydroponic set up rather than bottle kombucha) for the grapefruit. The large batch was ok – medium weak. We used 1/3 cup grapefruit, 1Tbsp sugar. We made 12 bottles of grapefruit.
We used part of the large batch and the medium batch (just right) for the plain and used 1/2 Tbsp sugar to make 11 bottles.
We pulled grapefruit at 4 days and it was perfect – not much pop with a bit of fizz. The longer it sits in the fridge it will continue to ferment.
We used the medium batch which was just right to make 11 bottles of grapefruit kombucha. We used a fresh (very dry) pre-squeezed grapefruit using 1/3 cup and 1 tbsp sugar.
For the large batch we made 13 bottles of plain kombucha using 2 tsp sugar per bottle.
We pulled the grapefruit at 4 days and there was barely a pop but there was just enough fizz to justify pulling it and putting it in the fridge. Was perfect.
The medium batch was just right, not too strong. We did 2 tsp of sugar to 1/3 cup strawberry puree. We made 9 bottles
The large batch was good as well just always a tad weaker than the medium. We made 14 bottles of plain using 1 Tbsp of sugar.
Strawberry was pulled at 2 1/2 days and there was no pop but we figured it would continue to ferment in the fridge.
