The actual ferment capacity (in our recommendation) is just over one gallon to harvest as you need to leave room at the top and save starter tea for the next ferment. By using our Continuous Brewing Method (harvesting daily) set: 19 ounces x 7 days = 133 ounces per week.

Of course you may use this art piece as the more common single stage fermentor but do consider the advantage of the Continuous Brewing method. The “optimum” health benefit of the nutrients are more readily available. Another advantage is that there is no need to do weekly cleaning, no need to worry about the kombucha mushroom, mold is less likely to form , Great Kombucha Tea is readily available, and there is less need to do bottling or extra storage. Simply pour off a cup of perfect KT.
Only continuous brewing of the kombucha allows the formation of different acids that are constantly being produced and broken down throughout the active ferment time. Kombucha Researcher Mike Rousin indicated that at 80o F and 7 days the ferment has the greatest variety of health benefits. (vitamins, oxylic acid, etc) However, he also noted that the longer fermentation proceeds the more beneficial acids have a chance to form. Some of these acids don't even appear until 14-21 days in the process. These acids are largely responsible for the detoxifying nature of KT and are the catalysts we seek in K-Tea. Glucose content maximizes around the 8th or 9th day. This implies that gluconic acid production could not peak until after that point. Gluconic acid is the biggest single contributor to the detox effect.
A longer brewing cycle, say 20-30 days, may deplete the total sugar or reduce the caffeine content, but the taste (unless finely filtered) is pretty much undrinkable.
The complete range is always present and can be maintained by bottling. Bottling or drinking the brew should be done prior to adding the fresh sugar and tea. If one person wishes a more sour tea simple draw off and allow to ferment longer in a separate uncapped bottle.
