INSTRUCTIONS for Gallon of Kombucha (My Updated Favorite Recipe)

INGREDIENTS:
1 Scoby
16 cups filtered water
12 grams black tea (12 tea bags)
1 cups white sugar
1 cup natural kombucha

-In your tea maker boil 8 cups of water.
-When it begins to boil add your tea and let it sit off the boil for about 20 minutes.
-Once your tea is brewed , transfer strained tea into a large glass container.
-Add your sugar to the tea and stir until dissolved
-Add in the rest of your water and let the temp settle to below 90 degrees
-Add Scoby to your tea along with 1 cup of Kombucha or Starter Liquid
Cover your container with clear kitchen towel and secure with a rubber-band.
Place your container somewhere dark with a temperature of 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit if possible. I would suggest using a heat pad under the the container to get this temperature because the end results will be optimal!
-Let it ferment for 7-10 days. Liquid should be a light golden brown color after it ferments
-You can now enjoy a glass of your kombucha but a second fermentation is recommended for a better flavor. Check out part 2 for bottling and flavoring ☺
