Supplies for Kombucha on Tap:
- CO2 Cylinder with Regulator
- Corny Keg
How to Serve Draft Kombucha:
- Once your kombucha is brewed, and before a second fermentation, add any flavorings desired.
- When your kombucha is ready, funnel it into the keg and seal the lid.
- Snip the end of your CO2 line and add a white or gray ball lock disconnect and the end of your liquid line and add a black ball lock disconnect.
- Put the keg in a kegerator (and the CO2 tank if desired)
- Make sure the CO2 cylinder is closed and connect the CO2 line to the keg.
- Attach the liquid line to the keg.
- Open the CO2 valve and adjust your regulator until the gauge shows 20-40 PSI output pressure.
- Confirm pressurization by pulling the release valve briefly.
- Let it carbonate for at least a couple days, depending on your preferences. Test each day to determine if it has reached your preferred carbonation.
- When you reach the carbonation level desired, close your CO2 cylinder and bleed pressure from the pressure relief valve on the corny keg, then turn down the regulator to 8-12 PSI. This will allow you to serve the kombucha without carbonating it further.
- Serve and enjoy!
