Once you have your kombucha is brewed (check out brewing guide here) and you are not quiet ready to make another batch, what do you do with your SCOBY?
Make a SCOBY hotel!
What you need:
1. 1 Gallon Sized Glass Jar (mine is gallon size)
2. Cheese cloth & rubber band
3. Starter Tea
4. Organic Sugar 1/2 cup
How to make hotel:
-Place SCOBY in a gallon sized glass jar
-Pour in starter tea (from the batch you just brewed)
–My hotel is only about 1/4 full of liquid (see picture on right)
-Add in 1/2 cup of organic sugar
-Cover with cheese cloth and that’s it!
-Add 1/2 cup sugar every 7 to 10 days to feed the SCOBY.
*tip* if you are going out of town for longer than 2 weeks, place SCOBY in refrigerator in sweet tea (aka tea with sugar). The refrigerator will slow down the SCOBY process.
