What is happening day by day
Watching tea turn into kombucha is quite a thing to behold. You give it the ingredients and let it work its magic. Billions of microbes and yeasts transform the tea into a bubbly probiotic tea that you will love. When you first start making kombucha you might be concerned and not know what to expect, so I made something to help you. I took pictures day by day, step by step, as well as top and side views so you can see what is happening each day. I have a time-lapse video for you as well, and hopefully this will help you feel confident and assured that your kombucha is fermenting properly.
I always use a heating belt when I make kombucha, and then I can count on it being done at the same time each week. If you’re not using a heating belt, your tea might ferment more slowly. The belt keeps it at 78° F and if temperatures in your home fluctuate, the kombucha might act a little different and take longer to ferment. So, when you’re concerned about your brew fermenting properly, take a look at these pictures and rest assured, these little unseen microbes are busy at work making a tea that could possibly change your life in a wonderful way. Kombucha does this . . . it’s a wonder tea!
