  1. Okay, I'll say it...my booch is better than GT's booch.

  2. Hi there. I am not a moderator, but here are my 2c. Technically they are fine. However, how do I put it nicely? It is not an ideal choice. We want to get healthy and eat nutrient dense food - this product has no nutritional value or health benefits. We want to change relationship with food - this might be a desire to replace pasta ( I say might, please let's not get into SWYPO talk, they are nasty). Zucchini/sweet potato/carrot noodles or spaghetti squash would make a perfect substitutes if the dish is calling for this kind of texture. This website made me laugh out loud. "The

  3. Miracle noodles have no carbs and no calories because our body doesn't recognise them as food and cannot use them. If I said to you put this gas in your car but by the way the car won't recognise it and the engine can't use it - you'd think I was mad. Yet somehow humans now think it's acceptable to eat *food* that our bodies can't use. Sorry but this is one of my pet peeves W30 is about eating real wholesome nutritious food that will nourish our bodies not 'stuff' that will provide us with absolutely nothing so please, please no miracle noodles

  4. That's so funny...I never thought of not flavoring mine. You've inspired me-I'm going to do one bottle with no flavoring. I've never even tried a plain GT! I'm also going to try to make something like gingerade. I think I'll try it in a white batch so it's light. Nothing but ginger. Maybe a drop of lemon.

  5. My cherry vanilla kombucha isn't half bad! I had to strain out the cherry pulp because it was gross to drink (i'm picky about texture!) but the flavor is pretty good. Next will be peach ginger!

  6. I got back from vacation on Saturday and both my batches were ready to go. I have been thinking about the continuous brew option and the comments here about the "constant project". I decided against CB, and will just deal with a few hours of bottling and brewing every few weeks. (2 weeks works great for my first brew, so it's always over the weekend.) I dumped Scooby, who never quite became strong, but my second one is flourishing. I have about 18 bottles in 2nd brew, which I will shorten and burp in 2 days so they don't explode. (Maybe 4 days to the fridge.) I had 2 bottles yeste

  7. Just outside of town we have an area called greenbluff. It's basically a collection of small family farms that grow lots of fruits and veggies and also make wine and other neat things. Several places offer "pick your own" fruit, where you go out into the orchard and pick your fruit, then they weigh it for you. We go there every year for peaches and get a huge box and make at least one pie and freeze what we can't eat right away. Mom and I went out there this morning and got a box. We got a lot that were blemished and getting over-ripe to make pie with and I pureed some to flavor my next batch

  8. This is good to hear Simonec! With lizzard's advice I am keeping my second ferment going a lot longer. My SCOBY is beautiful and large and it will sadden me to have to retire her after such faithful service! I did start a new "make your own SCOBY" yesterday just in case!
