Extra Scobys + Continuous Brewing

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

If you have any questions about these topics after reading the article, please feel free to contact us!


Continuous Brew

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).

We handcraft our artisanal kombucha via our signature small-batch, glass-vessel fermentation process, using high-quality teas to yield flavorful, fragrant and complex probiotic teas.

“In fine feather” means to be in good health and good spirits.
