Why buy store-bought kombucha when it's so easy to make your own!
If you're like me, you probably have kombucha in your fridge at all times. I like to have at least one glass of it a day. So I decided I needed to make it on a regular basis. It saves me a ton of money, and it doesn't take very long.
This easy recipe can be made anytime of the year because you can use fresh or frozen peaches. I have even made it with canned peaches.This sweet homemade Peach Kombucha is a fun treat. It's inexpensive and easy to make. It is fizzy just like store-bought. Click To Tweet
Two Types of Fermentation
For the first fermentation of kombucha you combine sweetened tea, a kombucha scoby, and some starter tea. You let it ferment for 7-21 days and the result is uncarbonated unflavored kombucha.
The second fermentation involves taking that kombucha you made in the first fermentation and adding flavor. You let it ferment for another 3-5 days in sealed bottles. The result is a fizzy flavored drink.
You can ferment even longer, if needed, letting the kombucha ferment up to 14 days. It all depends on the amount of sugar content in the flavor you're adding, and the temperature of the room.
Warmer temperatures will cause faster fermentation, and higher sugar content will also speed up fermentation.
How to Make The Second Fermentation
First you'll need some homemade kombucha, some bottles with flip top lids, and a funnel. Pour your freshly fermented homemade kombucha into the bottles, leaving a few inches at the top of each bottle.
Pour ¼ cup sliced peaches or peach juice into each bottle. Leave 1-2" head space. Let sit 3-5 days.
Pop open the lids at least once a day. Pressure builds, and this allows it to escape.
