The RBC System

Brewing with our system makes it exceptionally easy to make your own kombucha at home.

Act 1: Brew tea for kombucha

Step 1

Put desired amount of tea into disposable Drawstring Filter Bags (tea balls and muslin bags not recommended for this blend). PRO TIP: tea will expand in water, so only fill your tea bags up about half way, otherwise bags may burst.

Step 2

Add your sugar and filtered water to a pot, heat to a rolling boil, then add filled tea bags. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and allow to cool to room temperature. Remove tea bags. PRO TIP: Need to cool your brew more quickly? Use only 1/4 to 1/3 of the total water to boil, allow tea to steep, then add the remainder at chilled or room temperature.

Step 3

Add your cooled brew to your scoby and starter liquid. Cover with a piece of cloth (or Fer-Mesh) and an elastic band, then place in a well-ventilated area between 72-80 degrees. Do not place in direct sunlight.

Act 2: Ferment Your Booch

Step 1

Allow your brew to ferment for 5-10 days (warmer >temperatures take less time), or until your brew reaches desired flavor.

Step 2

Optional: flavor with Brew Booster or your favorite booch fixins, and bottle for secondary fermentation. Enjoy your creation!

Act 3: Boost your brew with Brew Booster

before you begin

For kombucha and other living beverages, reserve your scoby
and/or any starter liquid needed for your next batch, before adding
Brew Booster. Use during first (primary) fermentation notrecommended.

Step 1

Put desired amount of BrewBooster  into muslin bag or tea ball and add to your brew (drawstring paper filter bags not recommended). Muslin bag or tea ball is not required, but you’ll likely want to strain later

Step 2

Put your brew in the refrigerator and allow to steep for 4-72 hours, or longer (the longer it steeps, the stronger the flavor).  Optional : for kombucha and other living beverages, leave at room temperature for higher levels of carbonation.

Step 3

Remove the bag, tea ball, or strain your brew. For kombucha and other living beverages, bottle for secondary fermentation and carbonation if desired. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy your brew!

Pro tip!

Super premium, potent deliciousness inside. Begin with the
suggested starting usage – you can always add more 😉

Two Scobys later, still no tea

I am not sure if it was the directions on the website, not sure why a recipe couldn’t just be written out for 1/2 gallon or gallon. The website recommended making 1/2 gallon, I figured with the amount of starter tea, that would be best. First batch didn’t take. It may have been the temperature. (which link didn’t work) Raw Kombucha is the name. Their customer service was quick to send me another scoby and their tea. Kept temperature up, still no tea. So I am starting over with a different recipe. I have made lots of batches of kombuncha in the past, do IDK

Nice baby scoby

Im really excited and impressed how easy to make your own kombucha with this baby scoby. The culture look healthy and thick. I made my first gallon batch and it’s start multiplying (producing baby scoby) on 4th day of brewing. The package came with tea sample and instructions so it was very easy to make. I realized I need at least month for stronger flavor of my kombucha in gallon jar, I should’ve start it in smaller vessel for this size of scoby.
It takes time and patience but it totally worth it.

Nice scoby, needs practice

The scoby was in good condition, but getting the right taste took some experimentation. Once I figured out the right balance and brew time, my kombucha turned out really good. Good product for beginners, but be prepared for some trial and error.

Good for first timers

Being a first time kombucha brewer, I was not sure what to expect. But the scoby came in perfect condition and the instructions were easy to follow. My first batch turned out pretty good. I am still experimenting with the taste but overall it's a good product.
