5 Best Kombucha Making Videos for Your Next Party

Ain’t no party like a kombucha party cause a kombucha party don’t stop offering probiotic benefits! If you’re looking to bring some fizzy, fermented energy to your next shindig, it can be a whole lot tastier (and so much cheaper) to DIY it. 

For the kombucha noobs, the popular beverage is a fermented tea made with sugar, yeast, and live, gut-friendly bacteria. It’s tangy, effervescent, and, thanks to all that good bacteria, is full of antioxidants and probiotics that have all sorts of health benefits. 

To make it yourself, you’ll first need a SCOBY, or symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. The light, leathery blob is the mother culture required to make kombucha tea, and getting one started is easier than you might think. 

There are loads of kombucha how-to’s on the Internet—and we’ll point you to five of the best below—but the gist of kombucha-making is this. You start with a SCOBY, which can be purchased, borrowed, or created in your own kitchen. Then you prepare the tea, where again you have options. Depending on the flavor profile you’re looking for, you could start with white, green, oolong, or the traditional black tea. 

When you add your SCOBY to the tea, that’s where the magic happens. Let the mixture sit and ferment for between a week and a month; the longer you wait, the less sugary it will taste. And then voila! Pour your kombucha off the top and enjoy—you have a giant batch of effervescent, sweet-and-sour, good-for-you sips for your party. 

Ready to jump into the kombucha world? Here are five of the best kombucha-making videos to get you brewing.


You Brew Kombucha

Angelica’s mission is to make kombucha accessible to the masses. In this quick-start video, she takes you through the process of making a gallon of a first fermentation tea, which is unflavored, uncarbonated kombucha. (If you want to do a second fermentation to get fancy with it, she has videos for that, too.) In the six-minute video, you watch her do the process start to finish, plus there are helpful measurements and steps written next to her as she works. (And they stay up for a while; meaning no frantic penciling to keep up.)


Pro Home Cooks

Mike Greenfield is all about encouraging people to level up their cooking, and he does it through his Pro Home Cooks YouTube channel. In his kombucha making video, he does it all in his tiny kitchen, and if he can do it there, you can do it anywhere. Mike takes you through the DIY process of a first fermentation, all while giving you helpful, cheap tips like ordering a $7 SCOBY off Amazon and getting a $10 PH monitor to really nail that tartness.


Mary’s Nest

For a longer, more in-depth video, tune in to Mary’s ultimate kombucha making guide. In the nearly 40-minuteo-long video, she takes you through a first fermentation, plus a second ferment to give it good flavor, like the strawberries, lemon, and ginger she recommends. Mary is so soothing and reassuring that you’ll leave her video believing that you, too, can conquer the kombucha world.


Joshua Weissman

Chances are, if you’ve watched a cooking video on YouTube, you’ve watched Joshua Weissman. He makes fun, entertaining videos that are also super informative, and his kombucha making vid is no exception. Using hip hop music and dramatic kombucha imagery (yes, that’s a thing), Joshua takes us through a first and second ferment using just four ingredients. Here he makes a strawberry rose water creation, which sounds downright amazing, and he encourages us to taste as we go, which we can definitely get behind.



In this five-minute video, Lisa Lov, a kombucha-loving chef in Copenhagen, takes us through a first fermentation with jasmine black tea. Lisa’s kombucha journey is personal, as her Chinese father used to give the drink to her as a child to help her with allergies and other health ailments. While she didn’t necessarily love the vinegary taste back then, when she rediscovered kombucha later in life, it brought her back to her childhood, and now she’s a big fan. Lisa takes us through the basics of a short (3-5 day) fermentation, making it seem very doable to even the most tea brewing novices.
