When we make a kombucha barrel they use the finest American White Oak. Ever wonder why Oak is their wood of choice for a kombucha barrel? There are several reasons why. One is that Oak gives the ferment in your kombucha barrel a nutty, sort of buttery flavor, as well as additional vanillins and tannins. Over time the tannins are used up or exhausted.

Every year in the life of a kombucha barrel there is a certain amount of beneficial probiotic bacteria and different yeasts that impregnate the wood. As each kombucha barrel ages each one takes on a unique blend of flavor and health all its own. When utilized properly just one kombucha barrel can last more than your entire lifetime.

Tests were held on our kombucha barrel which revealed the following

Using ‘Silver Needle White Tea’ kombucha and fermenting it in an Oak kombucha barrel will produce a much smoother and deeper flavor. It reduced the overall amount of gluconic acid within the kombucha barrel compared to putting Silver Needle White Tea into more traditional ‘glass’ containers.

It should be noted, however, that when you ferment Silver Needle White Tea in an Oak kombucha barrel, it still produces a higher level of gluconic acid than when kombucha tea is created using green, black, or any combination of these two teas fermented in glass. Our American White Oak kombucha barrel enables us to produce a finely fermented beverage that is full of good taste and carries other important benefits.

A lot of discussion has been tossed back and forth concerning what materials works best to make kombucha tea in. Naturally, plastic is a versatile and affordable option. However, there are many claims about using plastic stating that kombucha actually leaches out toxins.

Kombucha Barrel vs. Ceramic or Glass

There are even fears attached to the use of ceramic containers because of lead poisoning. For this reason ceramic aging has been outlawed for nearly 30 years now. The experts tend to prefer glass as their first choice of medium for aging, even though glass can sometimes contain impurities of its own. Active fermenting processes can draw those impurities out. The hard woods like the French Oak or American Oak (used in kombucha barrel making) really do stand out in performance. When you use these wood mediums for fermenting in your kombucha barrel, active fermenting is actually encouraged.
