The answer my friend, is fermenting in the jar or a big ass brewing vessel! The process of fermentation takes about 10-15 days during which the yeast converts sugar into alcohol and the bacteria being good flatmates eat up the alcohol to give the healthy acids, enzymes, probiotics and of course the vinegary taste. At MAVI’s, we then add different fruits to it.
Everyone except the expecting or lactating moms! Just remember that for kids, the servings should be smaller.
At MAVI’s Mashi and Vikram have different palates so from the start we knew that we had to cater to both of them and the never ending list of friends. So the commbucha ranges from tarty to tangy to sweet-tangy. The regular users tend to like the tartier versions while the newbs like the sweetish ones.
Each individual has their own capacity so, but start with a 100-200ml and then slowly build it up. We do a special offer for Booch-addicts like U.
Well, Whenever you want to..Generally in the morning the absorption of the good bacteria tends to be better, so for the best results it can be consumed them. Although it can also be consumed any other time, as a healthy substitute to fizzy, caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. Try doing it with your meals or while you cuddle watching netflix or chilling with your homies over a game of poker/scrabble. A post dinner Commbucha is known to give a great start the next morning.
- Store the bottles straight in the fridge if possible.
- Keep them refrigerated under 6oC for best results.
- Don’t shake before opening the bottle.
- Turn the cap slowly to open and when you hear the fizz then stop and let the fizz settle down and continue to open slowly to avoid spillage.
- Consume the bottle asap once opened. After opening the air gets inside the bottle and fermentation speeds up changing the flavour and making the drink tarty.
- Feel free to add a sweetener of your choice in case the beverage is a little tangy for the taste.
- *Pro tip for Newbies – while opening, Keep a glass or a bowl under to catch any spillage.
