In this post, we discuss the “continuous brewing” method and give you ideas for what to do with extra scobys.

A continuous brew is another kombucha brewing method that involves intermittent consumption of the fermented tea. Usually, a container with a spigot is used to facilitate quick dispensing and more sweet tea is added to replenish the quantity dispensed.
PROS: It’s easier than bottling for busier people, and the kombucha is just a pour away!
CONS: You get little to no carbonation, and the spigot has a tendency to get clogged
Got Extra Scobys?
Don’t fret! Here is a list of things you can do with them:
- Throw in the compost
- Give away to friends or neighbors
- Start more batches
- Make scoby snacks with a dehydrator
- Put it in the blender and make a smoothie
And finally, if you are not actively brewing a batch of kombucha, you can make Scoby Hotel (just keep the scobies submerged in kombucha starter liquid until you’re ready to start a new brew).
