Does the equipment for fermentation need to be sterilised?
Like with all fermentation, it’s important to use clean equipment. This means thoroughly washing your hands and all the equipment that will get in touch with kombucha. Sterilisation is also recommended but it’s not necessary as long you maintain cleanliness and hygiene.
What about water?
Water is not as problematic as it can be when making water kefir. The reason for that is that when you make tea, you actually have to boil the water. But if you use only a portion of water to brew tea and then dilute with the rest of the water, some attention needs to be given to water too.
If you are not sure about your tap water quality there are some steps you can take. You can boil tap water for ten minutes first to make sure there are no harmful bacteria. If you leave it uncovered for half an hour this will also reduce chlorine content that can kill beneficial bacteria.
