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 😉

Great product and costumer service!

I like my scoby! Great costumer service!

Tyler Bedwell
The Perfect Starter

After taking a few years off of brewing, I was looking for a good starter SCOBY to get me back into brewing. This SCOBY was the perfect starter. After just 2 ferments, the SCOBY had doubled in size and was fermenting just as my old SCOBY did. Great starter SCOBY for anyone just starting out, getting back into it, or even starting a whole new operation.

Queen of kombucha cultures!

I’m the proud caretaker of a Gaia culture in western NC. Before I discovered RBC and started using this culture, I struggled to produce a good batch of kombucha. I tried everything until the only thing left to try was starting from scratch. My sister in law got me some brew boosters from RBC and I started looking into their products. After I started over with Gaia it was a completely different ballgame. Kombucha cultures are not all the same, in fact that couldn’t be further from the truth. Gaia is a star. Don’t even think twice about grabbing a scoby and starter from RBC… it’s the most important investment you could make as a home brewer. If you’ve struggled with a poor quality culture like I have, you’ll be kicking yourself over the time and effort wasted when Gaia was just a few clicks away.


Excited to start brewing again. The scony came with a strong starter tea for my 1/2 gallon brew

Thomas Ballard
Good strong active culture

So far, so good. This is a good, strong, active culture that is brewing away. I've used your SCOBYs before and am starting my Kombucha brewing back up again. Of course, I came back to you because of your quality SOCBYs and the rest of your Kombucha supplies. Keep up the good work.
