  1. I have been thoroughly enjoying drinking my homemade kombucha this past week! It tastes especially good ice cold. My second batch should be ready for the fridge this afternoon and I'm excited to try my new flavors (cherry, currant). This weekend I am going to bottle my third batch and switch over to continuous brewing. It's been so much fun learning about the process and it's really low maintenance!
  2. I'm just getting started with this whole brewing adventure, but I used freeze dried raspberries, blueberries, mango, and ginger. I just picked up dried cherries at Trader Joes and will use that on my upcoming batch. Tonight I am drinking my first whole glass of raspberry/blueberry ginger and I have to say it turned out delicious! Maybe slightly too sweet, but really good for my first batch! I also bought a big glass container on amazon today so I can switch to continuous brewing instead of one batch at a time. It's such a nice bubbly treat during the W30.
  3. Thanks so much! That sounds perfect. I have definitely learned my lesson and will let it ferment longer in the first place for my next batch. There is definitely a fair amount of trial and error involved!
  4. Hi all! I just bottled my first batch of kombucha on Friday and yesterday while I was burping the bottles I figured I'd have a little sample. It tastes way too sweet! I had let it ferment for 7 days and it was on the sweet side when I bottled, but I was worried about letting it go too long the first time. Is there anything I can do at this point to make it less sweet? Thanks! Amy
