Handmade stoneware jars are the perfect environment for brewing kombucha. Made with lead free non toxic glazes.

The "Durand Kombucha Jars" stand approximately 260mm to 270mm high, and 200mm to 220mm wide. 9-10lt capacity, designed to brew up to 8lt.

Kombucha, an ancient food and healing product originally from Asia was widely used in Russia, Eastern Europe and Japan but is relatively unknown in Australia. Kombucha is a living organism, the symbiosis of a number of bacteria and special-yeast cultures which fermented with sweet tea become the Kombucha beverage.

Kombucha is a health giving tea, that is said to aid in reducing symptoms of many ills.

Stoneware is the perfect medium for brewing and storing your kombucha. Our jars are individually handmade on the potter's wheel from stoneware clay. They are hand decorated and glazed with non-toxic glazes and then fired in our kiln to 1280 degrees Celsius. At this temperature the clay becomes vitrified and is turned to stone. The glaze turns to glass, unable to hold or leach any impurities. Unlike glass it will keep too much light from getting in to your brew, making it the perfect environment for your kombucha to grow.

We make our jars with a tap so you are able to use the continuous fermentation process. This method allows you to dispense a daily amount of kombucha, topping it up with new tea as you go, as opposed to waiting each time. These jars can also be used to make individual batches if desired.

Basic Recipe for making Kombucha

Depending on the amount of kombucha you wish to brew, multiply the recipe
eg, if you wish to brew 6 litres multiply this recipe by 3.

  • 2 litres of boiling water (no aluminium pans)
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 2-4 teabags or 2-4 tablespoons of loose tea or herbs (If using fresh herbs multiply by 7)
  • 1 healthy kombucha SCOBY or culture
  • 1 cup of fermented kombucha or mother tea (If you do not have mother tea you will need to buy a bottle of already brewed kombucha)
  1. Add the sugar to the boiling water and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add the tea and or herbs to the water and allow steeping for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Then strain the tea or remove the tea bags.
  4. When the mixture is cooled, pour into your jar.
  5. Add the kombucha culture and the mother tea. Make sure to secure the top of the jar with muslin or cheesecloth to keep insects out. The cloth needs to be larger than the circumference of the jar so there is enough overhangs to secure the cloth with a rubber band.

Important Notes for Brewing Kombucha:

  • Some low fired ceramics which may contain lead in their glazes and it is important to never
    use low fired ceramics for brewing or storing kombucha, as the lead will leach into your brew.
    • No metals should not come in touch with kombucha do not use a metal container or tap.
    • Do not boil your water or tea in aluminium pans.
    • Do not cover kombucha with a lid, only use a light muslin or cheesecloth material that you are able to breathe
    • If the weave is to loose you may need to use a couple of layers. Use a rubber band or tie to hold the cloth over the jar.

      Kombucha jar

      Fantastic jar! Recieved it securely packaged as I was worried about breakage but got it well wrapped. The jar it self is amazing. Now lives on our kitchen bench..also likes how it came with a thin clothe lid to cover the jar and instructions.

      I am very pleased with the 9L jar that I purchased. The glass jars tended to put people off - a scoby is not very nice to look at, now it is neat and looks attractive. The Raw Food Store was easy to deal with. My jar arrived quickly and was really well packaged.
