If you've been brewing kombucha at home, you may be wondering how to get it fizzy - carbonated - like the storebought stuff. It's fairly easy, and just requires bottles that have a flip-top cap with a gasket seal, or beer bottles, bottlecaps and a capper. Adding extra sugar (granulated, or fruit juice or fruit) can help give the bacteria and yeast something more to "eat," and when you put the brew under pressure, they will generate carbon dioxide, which is what gives kombucha its fizziness.
