A while back I did a post about making kambucha for beginners HERE.
This is the follow-up. how to flavour it and making it fizzy with a second fermentation.
My two favourite kombucha flavours are with lovely fresh raspberries, or plain oranges.
The kids really like these two flavours, they are uncomplicated and sweet.
If I’m brewing just for me I might get a bit more adventurous with fresh turmeric, cinnamon or even rose
When your first fermentation of your kombucha is done, and you are happy with the taste it’s time for the second fermentation.this will really make it fizzy and will also elevate the taste.
(Put your Scooby in a jar together with 1 cup of the kombucha liquid and store in the fridge until you are ready to make your next batch).
Now you can get creative with your kombucha using all sort of different flavours or play it safe like I do in this video where I use 3 peeled and sliced oranges.
Transfer your kombucha liquid into a jar with an air tight lid so the fizz don’t escape, a big kilner jar is perfect.
Leave a little bit of air at the top of the jar.
Add the oranges, close the lid and wait for 24 hours, have a taste.
Depending on how hot it is it might be ready or it might take up to 3 days before perfect.
Taste as you go along. When you feel the taste is just right then you are done.
Fish out your fruit and either transfer to glass bottles or just keep it in the jar in the fridge.
Now you have a super lovely drink that you made all by yourself and it’s so full of good probiotics that you actually made yourself. You’re taking back your power 🙂 Enjoy!.
