  1. I let my boyfriend's 10-year old daughter name it whatever she wanted, and she chose Margaret, but Maggie is just cuter. Don't feel bad about those scoby layers in the compost. They had a greater purpose than just kombucha!
  2. Hello, kombucha homies! I am hoping to revitalize this thread to connect with others who are currently brewing. I am brand new to this craft and should have my first fermentation ready this week. Very exciting! I'm attaching a photo of Toby, which I grew myself from a bottle of raw, unflavored GT's kombucha, and also Maggie, who I purchased over the weekend from a Craigslist ad. I'd love to see your pics too! I'm sure in the next several days I'll have questions, so I'm hoping there are still those of you out there who are actively booching.

    Yes, agree with all this 100%! I did address it with him immediately, and he apologized and and reminded me he was joking. But the problem is that it's NOT just joking; it's actually a really passive-aggressive form of sabatoge, even if unintended. It brings to mind one of my favorite quotes...

    Adjusting to no alcohol

    Thank you for starting this topic, @Lunarose! This is a struggle of mine, as well, so I look forward to feedback from others. For me, I'm more used to indulging in a few glasses of wine or a couple of cocktails on Saturday nights. My boyfriend misses this aspect of social time with me and tries to tempt me to drink by joking that I'm "more fun" when I drink... Ugh. He's a wonderful man! He just doesn't understand the science behind Whole30. I have been making myself little cocktails of just Lime Perrier on ice and I encourage him to have a beer or whatever, but he pouts. It's the strangest thing! Has anyone else seen this? I've started a routine of drinking a (wine) glass of kombucha before bed. It doesn't have the same relaxing effect as wine, but it does taste good and makes my body sing!
