Continuous Brew Kombucha Feeder Concentrate Recipe

When we first tackled the continuous brew method, I had a hard time determining a feeder concentrate recipe.  I knew how to make the tea, but felt confused about ratios for a concentrate.

Why bother with a concentrate?  Concentrate takes up less room in the fridge and provides an easy way to add replacement tea to continuous brew.

On top of the time-saving benefits of the continuous brew method, keeping a concentrated feeder tea on hand simplifies the process even further.  We are hooked on the continuous brew method, and this continuous brew kombucha feeder concentrate recipe is a key factor.

Keep the brew cycle going

You’ll find complete continuous brew instructions here, but the basic concept is this: for every four cups of mature kombucha you draw from the vessel, you’ll add four cups of replacement tea.  To make the replacement tea, simply combine 3/4 cup concentrate with 3 3/4 cups water.

It’s that simple!  

We keep a big batch of concentrate in a half-gallon jar in our fridge, and use it to replace the kombucha we remove from our crock of continuous brew.  After approximately 2-5 days, we’re ready to repeat the process.

Have you tried the continuous brew method?  How about a feeder concentrate recipe for replacement tea?  I bet you’ll love it!
