its been a week, your Bucha is probably getting close to ready, what happens now? You a) drink it the way it is, maybe give it a quick strain. Or b) carbonate it. Option b will take a few extra days but in my opinion is well worth it.
You can test to see if you have created carbonation by popping the top to see if any fizz rises from the bottom. Try to wait at least 2 days before testing and always test over the sink or outside, I have had kombucha explode 💥🍾 all over the kitchen (strawberry is especially explosive).
If you are having problems achieving carbonation you can add one or 2 pieces of dried fruit into your bottles, make sure the bottles are filled right up, and make sure the seal is tight!
I am enjoying an extra fizzy raspberry Bucha brew as I write, perfect Bevy to keep this scrambled mom brain focused!
