FAQs for Mad Millie Kombucha Kit

What is included in the Mad Millie Kombucha Kit? The kit includes everything you need to start brewing your own kombucha at home: a 1L brewing jar, a live SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), tea blend, sugar, a muslin cloth, and instructions.

How long does it take to make kombucha with the Mad Millie Kit? The initial fermentation process takes about 7-14 days, depending on your taste preferences and the temperature of your brewing environment. After that, you can enjoy it plain or flavor it and let it ferment for a few more days for added taste.

Do I need any additional equipment? No additional equipment is required. Everything needed to start brewing is included in the kit. You just need to provide water and a warm, clean space for fermentation.

Can I reuse the SCOBY? Yes, the SCOBY is reusable. After each batch, you can use it to start another batch of kombucha. With proper care, your SCOBY can last for many brews.

How should I store my kombucha? Store your finished kombucha in the refrigerator to halt fermentation, keeping it fresh and preventing it from becoming too fizzy or sour. Before refrigeration, you can store the bottles at room temperature for 1-3 days if you prefer a more carbonated drink.

Is it safe to make kombucha at home? Yes, when following the instructions carefully, making kombucha at home with the Mad Millie Kombucha Kit is safe. Ensure your brewing jar and hands are clean to avoid contamination.

What if my kombucha doesn't ferment? If your kombucha doesn't ferment, check the temperature of its environment. Kombucha prefers a warm, stable temperature between 20°C to 30°C (68°F to 86°F). Also, ensure that the SCOBY was healthy to start with. If it still doesn't ferment, contact support for assistance.

Can I flavor my kombucha? Absolutely! After the initial fermentation, you can add flavors such as fruit, herbs, or spices before sealing it for a secondary fermentation. This step is optional but can add interesting flavors to your kombucha.

How do I know if my kombucha is ready? Taste your kombucha after 7 days of fermentation. If it's too sweet, let it ferment a few more days. It should have a slightly tart, vinegary taste when it's ready. The balance between sweet and tart depends on your personal preference.

Can the kombucha kit be used to make anything else? While designed for kombucha, the brewing jar and other components can be used for other fermentation projects. However, the ingredients provided are specifically for making kombucha.
