Candy Cane Kombucha

This is a very bubbly kombucha, so don't forget to check it often. Make sure you buy organic candy canes from your local health store. These won't have the harmful red dyes in them. Don’t be surprised if this becomes a kombucha Christmas tradition. It tastes like Christmas!
Servings: 3 quarts

  • Place 16 ounces of kombucha in your thick glass bottles.
  • Place half of an organic candy cane in each bottle.
  • Seal the bottles and let these ferment for 3 days to 2 weeks. Check them often and release the pressure – when they are bubbly they are done. The fermentation time will depend on how sweet your kombucha was to start with and the temperature in your house.
  • Place in the refrigerator when done fermenting.


Make sure to use bottles that are for brewing. If you are using glass bottles, you must beware because there may be flaws in the glass or the yeast might just go crazy and blow up your glass bottle!
You can use old GT Synergy bottles, but my favorite bottles are clamp-down bottles by Grolsch. You can also find bottles at home brew stores. The clamp-down lids are safer and are thick glass for brewing.
