Kombucha / Jun Brewing

Can you teach me how to make kombucha tea?

Yes, we sure can! If you’re in the Melbourne VIC area, you can visit one of our fantastic kombucha creation workshops in Brunswick. These workshops generally run at the last Thursday of every month from 7pm and you get your very own kombucha SCOBY/starter to begin your brew. Check out our Events, Workshops and Tickets section to book a ticket online for our next workshop.

If you can’t attend one of our amazing workshops (we know, it’s devastating), then rest assured, our Starter and Complete brewing kits include instructions. You can also contact us at any time to ask about your Good Brew batch of booch for brewing advice.

How much kombucha or jun can I make from your SCOBY?

Ultimately as long as you keep your SCOBY alive, healthy and happy, then you can make kombucha or jun from it for as long as you want.

For your first batch from a Kombucha SCOBY Starter Kit for example, you should ideally make no more than a 2L batch. Once your SCOBY has grown and is strong and healthy, then larger batches can be made.

Once you have a healthy large SCOBY and batch, larger quantities can be brewed. Ideally you should not feed it more than 8x the starter (existing brew in your fermenter). For example, say you have 1L of a SCOBY starter / kombucha already in your fermenter, then you could feed it 7L of tea with sugar (but no more) to make a total of 8L.

How long does it take for a brew to be ready?

Around 1 week at 23 degrees, 2 weeks at 20 degrees, maybe 3 weeks at 17 degrees, etc.

What do I do if my kombucha / jun has mould?

Throw it out. Don’t risk your health. It’s less expensive to get rid of a brew that has gone bad than it is to miss work due to illness.
