Equipment Needed for Pineapple Kombucha
Bottles, 6 – 8 ounce bottles
Measuring cups and spoons
Prepare the Kombucha
Turn the blender on blend so it will thoroughly blend the pineapple and kombucha together.
Once the kombucha and pineapple chunks are completely blended, you want to strain the liquid so you can remove any large chunks. If it's still too chunky, you will want to blend some more so it has another chance to blend together.
Pour the Mixture
Now that everything is blended together, you can pour into the bottles you have saved. Place the lid on the bottle and set in a dark place
What to Expect
While sitting in the dark, you will not see that the kombucha will eat the sugar in the pineapple and that's when the flavors become infused. You can begin to sample your pineapple kombucha after the second day to see if it is ready. You will taste a sweet taste with a little fizz to it. If it tastes right to you, then it's done. If it has a tangy taste, the process may not be quite done.
Once it reaches the balanced taste, place it in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy!
