  1. Sooooo pictures are still not uploading or linking to facebook. Tried 3 different browsers. Mac and PC.
  2. I am going to jump here and share the best ginger tip ever. Freeze the peeled knob. Grating with NO stringy stuff. I always have coupe in te freezer. Tadaa.
  3. First, most of them have stevia and other ingredients that are out on Whole30. Second, you don't need that much supplementation if you are eating right. This supplement check list is a good way to evaluate the product. Third, please check these articles on supplementation while on Whole30. Part I and Part II.
  4. OMG. I have to share. I need to make it. Has anyone tried it? http://www.culturesforhealth.com/kombucha-coffee-recipe
  5. 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).

  8. They will work for sure. I though that buying GT is the way, because at least you get the bottle AND the booch Give your friends and neighbours a shout, they might have lots of bottles....
  9. Well, you can sti keep the jar and see what happens Megmac grew her with "oily" tea. But yeah, it will take forever probably. Don't worry, it's not a rocket science, you'll be a pro in a matter of couple batches.
  10. I am reading from the phone, can't link, but go to the website kombucha kamp and open the FAQ section
  11. Note that it might take a longer time for scoby to grow. Oils in teas are not that good for yeast. Vanilla. Are u on wh30? Then vanilla extract is out. I wouldn't take chance and try the vanilla sugar. I have never tried it or heard anyone trying it. Maybe someone else with chime in regarding this.
  12. Your taste buds are your advisors. Should be sour but not too sour. It shouldn't be too sweet either. Generally - if you like it, bottle it
  13. Again, if it's too sour, keep it in the fridge and mix with more of booch from next batch?
  14. It takes a little less time to brew in summer. I start testing after day 5. My usual bottling day is day 7. What you can do is to discard 1/3 or half of the sour booch and add fresh tea. Let sit for a couple days to ferment. Should work.
