    Haha I think I have zero demand in my area of clubs and bars or banks and well more bars I think I should exchange scobies for bottles. Too bad I can't store them horizontaly. Wine bottle racks with booch. Booch cellars. Booch tasting tours

    Dad has called and said his batch is ready. I said that I told him to test it after 5 days, not bottle it. He said nope, I love it like this. I thought that the vessel is in some powerd spot over there and told him to drink up Mary! Susan! Thank you so much, he has something to be excited about and something to play with during his "home arrest". He was so cute yelling "Nadia, it's ready! The blob has eaten the sugar! It's growing too. Do I bottle first or make new tea? Is it wrong that I like it plain? I want it plain! And yes, Mom said we need to add sugar to it to taste good. I said that she can't have sugar, right?! I mean if she doesn't like it more for me! Anyway, I don't see a baby you were talking about. Maybe we have a male scoby!!!" Shedding a tear.
    Flavors update.
    Cantaloupe. Don't waste kombucha, doesn't translate well at all.
    Cherry. Always good. Cherry vanilla is the bomb. Cherry basil is awesome too.
    Pear. Superstar. Pear vanilla and pear ginger - both are fantastic. Pear strawberry is lame. I am surprised.
    Cranberry - good good.
    Carrot - needs more experimenting. Carrot ginger blew me away.
    Cardamon. Weird but I love cardamon. Will be perfect Christmas drink. What's gonna happen if you heat booch? I assume all the good stuff will be destroyed?

    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

    I am pretty sure that I've read that metal lids are ok as long as they don't touch the liquid. Metal can actually erode. Just note that you will have to puree all the flavoring, so you can strain it without problems. No big deal I guess.
    Susan, does your booch get fizzy after the first ferment? Mine is sparkling even prior bottling. I wonder if tea has anything to do with this. I am actually using plain black from Russian store. Maybe that's the pixie dust Green tea batch will give the answer.
    Now question fro pro-s. What do you do with your new babies? I mean every week I am getting two new offsprings. Even if I keep two as a backup... I can sell them if I find enough booch enthusiasts here. My Dad has the same question. Are you throwing them away? Gasp.
    Btw, for those who haven't seen, I am bragging. Daddy and his new yeastie friend!

    Susan, look at these. I am dying. So flipping expensive for the pretty bottle.

    That's the thing, I've tried all the possible brands of booch and this is my third batch. I've never had anything like that. I walked to the office kitchen after I sipped a bottle I brought from home. People, I swear I am drunk It's 11 AM ahahah

    Sophie, you crack me up. I have converter app opened all the time, I will never speak feet, inches, Farenheits or ounces. No offense people, but measuring veggies in cups is the most ridiculous (and inaccurate) thing ever Grumpy me today heh.
    Basic recipe calls for 1 gallon. You can scale the recipe accordingly I guess. I've only doubled it, no scaling down I'd def get a bigger jar, because if you are not doing a CB it will leave you with like 3 bottles of booch as you'll have to save some for the next batch.

    This is what I did! Grew scoby out of GT. It made a baby scoby, which went to the second jar after peeling it off. They both grew one baby each. One baby went to the hotel and one went to my Dad. His baby grows at the rocket speed! It is double size in two days, weeeeee!

    Strawberry chocolate mint is a success! I have a potted chocolate mint plant (like regular mint only with a hint of chocolatey flavor) and simmered the leaves in some strained strawberry puree. It's delicious and super refreshing!
