Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered in Recipe Sharing Posted October 14, 2016 1 hour ago, MrsStick said: @purplepadres how much of the flavoring did you use? I'm planning to try to recreate an apple cider booch I bought commercially but am not sure how much juice I should add vs. the spices. Did you use a cinnamon stick? Do you think it could be reused for more than one batch if you did? I used real fruit, rather than juice....probably close to 1/4 cup of peeled, diced honeycrisp apple, about 1/3 of a cinnamon stick, and a small piece of chopped ginger--per bottle. I'm guessing I can probably reuse the cinnamon stick, but hard to say. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but plan to crack one open with dinner this evening.
