This homemade Pumpkin Spice Kombucha is fall in a bottle! It's a great non alcoholic option for the holidays.
The star of any pumpkin dessert is the pumpkin pie spice in my opinion. The spice blend is the gateway for me to eat pumpkin. The other way I will eat it is with curry spices like a curry soup.

Two Types of Fermentation
To make homemade kombucha, you start with the first fermentation.
The first fermentation of kombucha is when 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.
To make Pumpkin Spice recipe, you will be making a second fermentation.
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 This Recipe
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 pumpkin purée, ¼ cup maple syrup, and ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 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. Taste each day to test its flavor and fizziness. For this recipe I let mine ferment 5 days.
