How do I store my kombucha scoby when not in use?

by Kim

Store your kombucha scoby in 300 mL (10 US fl oz) of starter culture from your previous batch, in the refrigerator.

If it has been stored for more than 2 weeks take it out the night before brewing and follow the below instructions;

  1. Dissolve ¼ cup (50g) of white sugar in 250 mL (8.5 US fl oz) of brewed black tea.
  2. Allow to cool to room temperature before adding your starter culture and scoby. This will give the scoby a jump start to come out of hibernation.
  3. The next day follow the Mad Millie How to Guide for Kombucha, but you now have double the starter fluid so take this into account with your brewing vessel.
