I throw in my bag or picnic basket for everything of a potluck-y nature in the summer, knowing that even those who don’t love kombucha can rarely resist its ruby charms. It takes on a gorgeous, deep red color and tastes like summer. There are a lot of ways to end up with a fizzier ferment, but the best way to get fizzy booch is to bottle your tea when it’s still sweet. Place them into a food processor or blender with about a 1/2 cup of the finished kombucha and blend until liquified. Seal your container tightly, keeping in mind that you need to keep a close eye on glass containers.Stick your growlette in the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours until chilled.
Once it’s chilled, strain the kombucha into glasses for drinking. First, it’s a little tricky (but not impossible) to see in the amber bottles. So the deal is that any cherry solids left will almost immediately rise to the top. I personally keep my glass bottles or growlers either inside a small cooler or in a double paper grocery bag. Again, explosions are quite unlikely to happen with a secondary kombucha, but they are definitely possible so due care and attention should be paid.

I made a second ferment of cherry rooibos kombucha and it turned out great. I get different fizz in each bottle so this gives me better results. That third picture of the cherries with the water beads on it looks so good!
Seems a lot has been learned about fermenting in the last 2 decades. Cherries are in season for a few more days – thanks for this wonderful idea. The easy, longer way to do this is to stick a jar of finished kombucha in the fridge with about 10-20% whole cherries in (~3/4 of a cup cherries per quart jar of booch). They are pretty, sleek and they do a very nice job of trapping fizz. The difference is nuts), as well as some larger-sized options for those of you who have more space in and around your fridge. Sears, you’ll want to curtail that habit and cut fermentation time by a goodly amount. Pour the mixture into your growler and add the remaining kombucha. Allow your bottle to sit at room temperature for 2 days, or until you are sure that full carbonation occurred (by using one of the methods below).
When the raisin floats to the top, you know the beverage is carbonated.
You can do the same with a quart ball jar, and keep tabs on the lid. It has a removable strainer that is easily cleaned and allows you to use it as just a funnel when its straining capabilities are not needed. I have flavored my kombucha with organic cherry juice (tried both tart and black), but have not tried the actual fruit yet. I think that strainer would be super useful for filtering schnappses and other liqueur infusions. I recently got a scoby and it should be about done with it’s first batch. We’ve made traditional, the white bean dip/roasted tomato pizza in the book (so good) and this one, which is a random assortment of veg ferments (roasted garlic kraut!
Supporting local ag, and small family farms is important to me.

Fermentation Gone Bad? Sauerkraut Making Troubleshooting Guide by makesauerkraut.com
It can be very unnerving to leave a jar of vegetables on your counter to ferment for weeks on end.
Do you fear that your fermentation has gone bad and you will poison your family?
If your kitchen is too warm or too cold, look around for a better spot. Want to make sure nothing goes wrong with your sauerkraut fermentation?
It is rare that you will find a situation where your sauerkraut needs to be tossed. Comments section where readers have uploaded their pictures of moldy, slimy, brown sauerkraut. Or, what went “right” to allow the mold or yeast to take hold. Kahm yeast is a flat, thin, white to cream-colored powder and if it grows thick enough, it can almost look like velvet. It appears most often during warm weather and when fermenting sweeter vegetables, such as beets, carrots and peppers. It can look scary and unpleasant and even smell a little strong, ranging from yeasty to cheesy or even reminiscent of alcohol. By thinly slicing your cabbage, you make it easier for the bacteria to get at those sugars. Or instead, reduce the length of time that you ferment high-sugar ferments.

To make removal easier, wait until fermentation is complete – or even cut it short – remove all of the yeast, including what is stuck to the jar and then taste the top layer. Mold grows from mold spores that are present everywhere in the air and on the surface of fruits and vegetables. They can actually survive in acidic foods so it’s not necessarily the acidity that deters them. You’ll be killing off the bacteria just the bacteria you need. Their cabbage floaties trap was out of the brine and exposed to air and mold grew. If you do, don’t get mad and think you will never figure out fermentation.
You established the perfect home for them to grow: air, warmth and not enough little salt. Sanitizing things is overkill and destroys the bacteria necessary for establishing the proper fermentation environment.

By keeping your ferment below the brine and using an airlock of some type, mold can’t get to your ferment. If the environment is right, mold spores will grow and multiply on the surface of your ferment. Usually, underneath the mold growth, your ferment is untouched and smells fresh and clean. If you are not comfortable salvaging a ferment or are sensitive to molds, by all means, throw it all out!
Gently remove your weight from your fermentation vessel, then use a large spoon to get under the mold and skim it off the best you can. Mesenteroides) are eating the sugars in your cabbage and vegetables.
You are not fermenting in a climate-controlled laboratory!
The bubbles are most likely in your jar but you can’t see them because they are trapped in the packed fermentation mixture.
You won’t be able to test your cabbage for sugar levels, but if you’re concerned about an inactive batch, try buying your cabbage from another source. Sometimes, it is so copious that it flows out of the jar and onto our countertop. Gases created during this first stage of fermentation need to push their way up and out of your packed sauerkraut.Generally, you’ll have more brine at the beginning of fermentation and during the part of the day when your house is warmer. It helps to keep your ferment anaerobic and provides moisture in your jar of finished sauerkraut. Weigh your cabbage and vegetables to ensure you add the correct amount of salt to create a 2% brine. Remember, these weights include not just the cabbage, but any vegetables and seasonings you’re mixing with the cabbage. This is especially important during the first few days of fermentation when the lactic acid bacteria are creating the lactic acid necessary to preserve your sauerkraut. Usually, what you are seeing is normal and can be fine-tuned by adjusting the temperature at which you’re fermenting and how long you’re fermenting.

Kahm can describe a number of yeasts that will sometimes show up on the surface of a ferment that hasn’t reached a high enough acidity. The yeast can also appear as a creamy scum if it forms and then the brine level drops below the surface. Kahm yeast takes hold at the beginning of fermentation if the required high acidity level of your ferment is slow to form. Its growth is often an indicator that not enough salt was used. Give the lactic acid bacteria easy access to the sugars in your vegetables. Acid levels rise as the bacteria consume the naturally occurring sugars in your cabbage and vegetables, sugars that are locked inside the cells of your vegetables. Doing so helps to stack the deck in your favor, but even the best of us have had yeasts grow in a sealed jar. If you’re fermenting during the heat of summer, you might want to refrain from using carrots, beets or sweet peppers in this particular batch of sauerkraut. This is a time to thoroughly clean your jar, crock, lid or whatever came in contact with this batch of sauerkraut, perhaps using a distilled white vinegar solution. Mold is raised and fuzzy and can be white, black, blue, green or even pink. Mold begins growing when spores land – or already exist – on a wet nutrient-rich surface, such as bits of exposed cabbage, and over time grows into a thick layer. But don’t grab your bleach bottle and try and sterilize your jar and lid trying to kill these mold spores. And a perfectly sterile environment is not good for the bacteria, just like it’s not good for the mold.First off, rarely should you have mold growing on your ferment. Figure out exactly why the mold grew and adjust the next batch accordingly. The trick is to provide a fermentation environment where the good bacteria can quickly out-compete the bad bacteria. Simply clean your jars and equipment with a gentle dish soap and rinse well with water. Too much air in your jar can lead to mold and yeast growth since it may take a while for the production of gases by the bacteria. Look around your home for a cooler spot or ferment during a cooler season. This is fairly common with open crock fermentation where the nutrient-rich surface of the ferment is in contact with oxygen-rich air. Most find it perfectly safe to remove the layer of mold on top of their ferment. However, toss ferments with black, pink or orange mold or if they have an off smell. The longer you allow the mold to grow, the deeper it penetrates your ferment. Molds also digest lactic acid, the crucial preservative in your ferment. Evaluate the texture of the underlying ferment, removing any layers that are soft or discolored. Since mold needs lots of oxygen to grow, it doesn’t hurt to then stir the brine layer a bit to submerge any microscopic mold spores you may have missed, thus depriving those microscopic beings of the oxygen then need for survival.
You may hear an occasional fizzy sound as the bubbles work their way out of your jar, either through your loose lid or an airlock. They can be elusive and not every batch of sauerkraut progresses through each stage with perfect timing. Remember, if it is past the first 5-7 days, you may no longer see many bubbles, if any. Cabbage low in sugar provides less food for the bacteria to eat and results in a reduced production of carbon dioxide, those elusive bubbles. Cabbage that has been irradiated to increase its shelf life is devoid of microbial life, the very microbes necessary for fermentation. The bubbles may even be colored depending on what you used to flavor your sauerkraut. Foaming slows down quite quickly and usually stops by the end of the first week. This not only prevents excess bubbles but also prevents the formation of a syrupy batch or the domination of yeasts common in an alcohol ferment. That essential salty, nutrient-rich fluid that keeps our ferment safe from airborne molds and yeasts. Other times, it just disappears and leaves our sauerkraut high and dry. If these air bubbles instead get trapped in your packed sauerkraut, the mixture will expand and move up in the jar. The amount of brine produced in your fermenting sauerkraut can vary dramatically from one batch to the next. I sure did with those cranberries!
, trying to avoid wasting any of that precious space. Try to pack your jars about 75-80% full, leaving about 2 inches (5 cm) of space between the top of your packed sauerkraut and the top of your jar.
