Slicing the Apricot
Second Fermentation Process Begins
You will need to place the soda bottles in a dark place where they will maintain a steady temperature and remain out of any sunlight for three days. During this time, carbonation will take place in your Kombucha which I'll give it a fizzy appearance when you open the bottle. On the third day, you can check the bottles to see if they are ready by squeezing the soda bottle. If the bottle feels tight, then there is enough carbonation and your apricot flavored Kombucha is ready.
Now that your Kombucha is ready, you can keep the bottles inside the refrigerator until you are ready to drink.
Whether you are entertaining guests or just sitting on your porch watching the sun set, apricot flavored Kombucha is the perfect taste when you need a little sweetness.
