What equipment do you need for kombucha brewing and fermenting?

What is kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented tea drink, the basic ingredients in kombucha are yeast, sugar, and black tea. 

The mixture is set aside for a week or more. During that time, bacteria and acids form in the drink, 

as well as a small amount of alcohol. This process is known as fermentation.

After fermenting finish, Kombucha is finished which includes vinegar, B vitamins 

and many other types of acids like amino acids.

During Kombucha Fermentation, 

the bacteria and acids form a film on top of the liquid called a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). 

You can use a SCOBY to ferment next batch kombucha.

How to make kombucha?

1) Make SCOBY (1 to 4 weeks) – to make the “mother”
