How to Make Kombucha with a Continuous Brew Kombucha Jar

  1. Prep container for brewing by rinsing it with warm water and mild soap. (avoid antibacterial soap.) You can also rinse it with distilled white vinegar. Let it dry.
  2. Prepare sweet tea mixture in a separate container using ratios below.
  3. Let tea cool to room temperature and pour it into the brewing container. You’ll need to leave enough space to add starter tea and the SCOBY.
  4. Add the starter tea and SCOBY.
  5. Cover with the lid and use the included pencil to mark the date on the lid’s rewritable label.
  6. Let culture at 68-85°F, out of direct sunlight, for 7-30 days, or to taste. (The longer the kombucha ferments, the less sweet and more vinegary it will taste.)
  7. Drain kombucha out of the spigot as you want to drink it throughout the week, then add more sweet tea at the end of the week OR remove and bottle all but 20% of kombucha at once, then add new sweet tea when you are ready to start brewing again.


Kombucha Ingredient Ratios

  • One-Quart Batch: 1½ teaspoon loose tea OR 2 tea bags | ¼ cup sugar | 2-3 cups water | ½ cup starter tea or vinegar
  • Half-Gallon Batch: 1 tablespoon loose tea OR 4 tea bags | ½ cup sugar | 6-7 cups water | 1 cup starter tea or vinegar
  • Gallon Batch: 2 tablespoons loose tea OR 8 tea bags | 1 cup sugar | 13-14 cups water | 2 cups starter tea or vinegar



The recommended method for cleaning and sterilizing is the same for all Mortier Pilon Fermentation Crocks, Brewing Jars and Canning Jars:

  • DO NOT use boiling water or very hot water and DO NOT put in the dishwasher.
  • Start by rinsing the inside of your Crock or Jar with lukewarm water from the tap.
  • Add in a bit of distilled white vinegar and shake so the vinegar gets all over the inner wall of the Crock or Jar.
  • Turn the Crock or Jar upside down above the sink to get rid of any excess vinegar. You do not need to rinse the remaining vinegar off as it promotes the growth of good bacteria.
  • Should you need to clean the outside of the Crock or Jar, use a damp piece of cloth or paper towel.
  • Please note all utensils and accessories coming into contact with the food before and during fermentation should undergo the Cleaning & Sterilizing process outlined above.
  • This includes the Mortier Pilon ceramic weight if using, along with any utensil used to stir the preparation

    Pleased with timely delivery of product. Exactly as advertised but have not had a chance to make my first batch of Kombucha. Looks like a good system.

  4. Pretty!

    by Rebecca on 04 Thu,2017


    I have not yet had a chance to make kombucha in this because I'm still working on activating my dehydrated SCOBY, but I believe it will be perfect once I start brewing large batches. It also looks great on the set of shelves that I painted and placed against a wall in my kitchen to use specifically for ferments while organizing and displaying associated products and bottles I purchased at Cultures for Health. I love the spout and hope it will come in handy when we have company!

  5. I love this product.

    by Toni on 08 Mon,2017

  6. Lovely

    My scoby is really happy in this jar. I've gotten great results with my brew and I just can't get enough! I really like the kombucha bottles by this company too! Just great!

  7. Awesome

    by Tom on 11 Thu,2017


    I bought this kit to start making my own kombucha and it tastes great after the first batch! The tap is so convenient to collect the kombucha after it's brewed. Love it!

  8. Works Great!!!

    I bought one for our family as a Christmas gift 2016. It has a nice design to it. We are now on our second batch of kombucha. Our family Loves it! :) I will be purchasing a second one plus the matching glasses with seals to complement it.

  9. Great

    by Damaemma on 03 Sat,2017


    I bought this for myself for Christmas. Yes it's a little on the pricey side but it actually brews faster then my other jars. Has a nice convenient spout and its own cover to keeps lil bugs out. And it looks nice on the counter. Pleased with purchase.

  10. Really cool

    by Notorious_REN on 11 Fri,2016


    I got this jar to make healthy kombucha without compromising my style ! It's perfect. It looks clean, protects the precious liquid and still allows you so see how your brew is doing. Maybe pricier than other jars out there, but it's worth it!

  11. this is not what you really want

    by wingear on 07 Mon,2017


    do your research, this is not the correct type of vessel for making kombucha

    Response from CFH: Thank you for your very honest feedback! We are saddened that it is not meeting your expectations as our other customers and staff for brewing kombucha continuously! Please contact us if you need any assistance.

    • What is the spigot made out of?is it plastic?
    • That is made of non-reactive, BPA-free PP plastic.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Debra at 9/1/2017 5:22 PM
    • Can I activate your Kombucha starter in this jar and then add the cooled tea after activation?
    • You can certainly use this container! Please follow our instructions for the scoby, not the manufacturer's instructions for kombucha that come with the container. The activation is a full 30 day period in which the scoby will just sit at the bottom of the jar, and appear to do nothing. You will still need to add vinegar as we instruct, and not use the container as a continuous brew just yet. Contact us if you have any questions!

    • This really caught my eye, but the process is a little different than what I am use to. It has it being left out in direct sunlight, as where I have been making mine by keep it in the dark 7 to 10 days. So I am a little confused. Why is that??
    • Your kombucha does not have to be secluded in the dark. Just watch that having it in direct SUNLIGHT is not the case, as that would heat up your brew and cause problems since it should never be warmer than 85ºF. You can make kombucha either way.

  • From Peggy at 4/8/2017 9:47 AM
    • Can the continuous brew kombucha Jar be used to make water keifer?
    • Although the Continuous Brew Kombucha Jar would work beautifully for dispensing finished kefir, we do not generally recommend using a continuous culturing method with water kefir grains.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Kai at 3/3/2017 8:07 PM
    • This had a lid, how do you get sufficient airflow to the kombucha?

      Thank you
    • The lid is specially designed with a cloth filter to allow airflow in both directions.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Can you detach the spigot for cleaning? Thanks
    • Yes, the spigot for the continuous brew kombucha jar does detach from the jar.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Evelyn at 1/8/2017 5:43 PM
    • Is it necessary to spray the special cloth lid with vinegar as for coffee filters?
    • Yes, if you are reactivating a Cultures for Health scoby, you must still spray with white vinegar for the batches through Batch #4 as this helps fend off airborne mold. Any signs of mold and it must be tossed, and we don't want that!
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Angie at 10/26/2016 8:26 AM
    • Am I able to use this product to make Jun-following the same basic directions?

      Thank you :)
    • The Continuous Brew jar can be used for Kombucha or Jun. The directions should be similar, follow your recipe for Jun, increasing the ratio of ingredients for the appropriate size batch.
