Elderberry Kombucha in jars

Elderberry Kombucha Recipe

  • Author: Gigi Mitts
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 15oz 1x


  • 13 oz of freshly brewed home-brewed kombucha (after the first ferment)
  • 2 oz of elderberry juice or elderberry syrup
  • ½ tsp grated ginger


  • 1 unbreakable bottle with stopper for storing the kombucha
  • Glass jar for mixing the syrup and the kombucha
  • Wooden stirrer
  • Grater for the ginger
  • Funnel


  • Take the freshly brewed kombucha in a glass jar.
  • Add the elderberry juice or syrup and mix well using the wooden stirrer.
  • Wash and grate the ginger to yield about ½ tsp.
  • Add the grated ginger to the glass jar.
  • Pour the mixture using a funnel into an unbreakable bottle with a stopper.
  • Place the bottle in a warm place (72-75 F) and allow it to ferment for 3-4 days.
  • Check the taste and if it is bubbly and tangy enough, filter out the ginger pieces.
  • Store the elderberry kombucha in individual bottles and refrigerate to slow down the fermentation.


  • If your elderberry kombucha does not fizz and bubble, it means that the bottle wasn’t covered tightly enough or that it wasn’t placed in a location warm enough.
