Why pH is Important to the Health of your Kombucha Culture
The optimum pH for Kombucha is 3.5-2.8. When the pH of the sweet tea solution drops to 3.5 or lower, then you technically have Kombucha tea – this happens within the first 3 days of the fermentation process. The pH level is important for ensuring the health and protection of the Kombucha culture. At this pH, the growth of other microorganisms is inhibited.
However, pH does not indicate if the Kombucha tea is ready to drink. Although the pH is low, the amount of sugar consumed is not indicated by pH. Therefore it is important to taste test your Kombucha to find the right flavor for you. Too sweet, continue to let it ferment. Too sour, next time reduce your brewing cycle.
