Brewers make the tea but SCOBY makes the booch! WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY, a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that is used for fermenting sweet tea into kombucha. White Labs’ culture is free of food pathogens and has been genetically identified to know specially what yeast and bacteria are involved in the fermentation of kombucha. This SCOBY has medium acetic acid production and low alcohol production.
One SCOBY will make 1 to 5 gallons of kombucha, but the White Labs pouch only contains enough starter liquid for 1 gallon of kombucha. Typically, 1 to 2 cups of starter liquid is recommended per 1 gallon batch. Previously made kombucha or store bought unflavored, unfiltered kombucha will work as starter liquid.
With proper care and storage, you can reuse your cuture for multiple batches. For short term storage, a clean, food grade container placed somewhere out of direct sunlight and left undisturbed is suggested. If you will not be using your SCOBY for an extended period of time, place it in a clean, food grade container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Feeding (adding new tea) as needed to keep the SCOBY from drying out.
