  1. 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 soluble fiber found in the Miracle Noodle slows digestion and prolongs the sensation of fullness and is an essential part of any weight loss program. You also absorb more nutrients in the foods you eat with The Miracle Noodle due to the slowing of digestion". Really? Meat and fat will give you sensation of fullness, people  :D 

  2. I have been finding my batches are less and less fizzy over time, despite doing my continuous brew and the second ferment the same each time. Does SCOBY get old? I actually bought a new bottle of original GT to start a new SCOBY from scratch. Is there anything I can try before starting all over? More sugar or more tea when I add in my next sweet tea?

    I miss my fizzy booch. Flat booch tastes, well, flat!


    Kb, mine decided to relax too. I get it it's summer time, she wants to chill, but it's not even growing to fill the surface of the jar. Time to bug Dad for one. 

  3. I would prepare tea first, remember, it needs to cool down first. It might take some time.Then, I'd pour everything out to any mixing bowl - liquid and a scoby. Fill the jar with fresh tea, pour the starter liquid with scoby and cover. It is like rubber, nothing is going to happen to it. You can't ruin it. If you are grossed out to touch it understandable, I just move it around with clean hands. Good luck!


    P.S Def try the liquid from the scoby jar before. I use straw to get underneath the yeastie. If it's sour and not sweet - start the brew 200%.

  4. Facial! Whaaaat?! I know that Liz will probably say "yep, have been doing it forever". I wonder how can you mush it up, blender? So cruel, my heart will be bleeding to watch that  :o I am curious to try tho. Just when I thought I couldn't gross out people more with eating kidneys and hearts. Thanks for heads up! 


    Megmac, it's kinds thin-ish for a 3 week, tbh. But it's not abnormal and like Sophie said, it will do the job. Have you added a bottle of store booch to fatten it up? Did you move it from the light? Oh poor you, waiting must be killing you. Give it couple more days and start brewing I say.
