Anthea, I use a little less sugar (about 300g) and I don't make the tea so strong- 6 spoons of loose leaf green tea in a muslin bag, waved around lightly for 15 minutes in about 3 litres of boiled water, NEVER squeezed!. It no longer fizzes so much and is a lot more predictable and tasty. At the moment I've also got the fermenting jar sat on an upturned wicker basket, inside which is a heater pad that gives off a very low amount of heat. The whole lot is then insulated with towels. I'll try to remember to take a photo.

This came through fine on my computer this time. Thanks. I use 3-4 spoons of tea to 250g sugar and 2.5 litres of water so the strength is about the same but I don't seem to get the fizz you do. No matter but am curious as to the reason. What do you do differently these days?

A few people have said they can't find this video I made a few years ago, so I've resurrected it! This isn't exactly how I do it now, but it's still current and shows the basics of my routine.

If anyone else has videos of fermentation processes, or links, maybe we could find them and re-post for our newer members to see?
