How to store the kombucha?

 The best thing to do in your absence is to put the kombucha in the refrigerator in about 250 ml of its own liquid, and make sure to leave some space so it can have enough air to breathe. It then falls into "hibernation" and can be kept like that for about three months.


Otherwise, if you leave it in the open air at a temperature of about 18° C / 64 F (so not very high), the fermentation process continues, as long as the kombucha has enough sugar and oxygen.


This is why the best way to keep the kombucha in your absence is the refrigerator.
