Either strain is fine but the SB is more antagonistic against Candida. Store bought kombucha is going to be the best bet for most people (example: GT’s with only 2g of sugar) because its hard to tell how much raw cane sugar is left in the tea after home fermentation.
I fermented using S. Boulardii for a while, my only gripe is that the SB was taking way too long to ferment (1 whole month). I’ve also used delbrueckii which seemed to be faster and more consistant. Feel free to experiment with both and use PH strips to help judge acidity. At this point I only drink store bought Kombucha and drink it as my healthy soda from time to time.
Thanks, – how do you use Ph strips, – what should the Ph read to tell you when the fermentation should stop? If its taking a month, I guess you must be making large amounts like a gallon or thereabouts.
Its a spin off between stopping the fermentation of the Kombucha early and ending up with too much sugar, and leaving it to ferment into vinegar thats too sour to drink.
How much do you drink per day,- a cup? Then I guess you’re taking a S.Boulardii supplement too.
