Making a continuous Kombucha brew

 

The continuous brew method for making Kombucha involves removing some of the liquid each time and replacing with the same amount of fresh brewed sweetened tea. You will want to leave around 30% or more of the brew each time you draw off some kombucha. This gives a lovely fresh brew and helps it ferment faster, which is great if there is a lot of Kombucha being consumed in your home!

Advantages of the continuous method are

Less time consuming to make

Less likelihood of mould or other contaminants spoiling the ferment as once it is going the liquid maintains a far more acidic environment

A great population of good bacteria.
