  1. When I explain to people what kombucha is and how the scoby works I liken it to yogurt (so mainstream!). I say that yogurt is made by certain strains of bacteria that eat the sugar in the milk and produce a byproduct that makes it taste tart. Then I say that kombucha uses a different bacteria (scoby) to eat the sugar out of sweet tea (also so mainstream, ESP in Texas) and leaves a tart byproduct. Anyone can understand that and get past the ick factor. It is amazing to me how many people don't realize that beer is fermented with yeast also- and that we have facilitated bacterial/yeast cultures for all sorts of foods and drink (uh, cheese? Sourdough? Pickles?)

  2. Michele I think I have the first tapatalk that was available to us. No compass pointing Northeast. :) I just have reply, quote, edit and share. I may have to look into tapatalk 2. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Oh, I see. Tapatalk 2 is $3.99 in the App Store, but I think it's worth it as much as I'm on here.

  3. Oh yes meg. I know what you mean. I always grab my old lady reading glasses before opening tapatalk. Do you use tapatalk? Makes the site very phone friendly. You can't "like" posts from it though. Or edit a post. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    You can "like" a post from tapatalk (well, I have tapatalk 2) by clicking on the post to bring up the toolbar at bottom and then click on the icon that looks like a compass pointing northeast. That opens tapatalk in what it looks like on your phones browser and then you can like and click back to get back to the forum. The editing is (I hope) a temporary glitch.

  4. Yes that's correct Nadia- though I have heard that Jasmine Green tea is suitable for brewing. I took a tulsi rose fleabag from her and dropped it in a quart of booch in the fridge last night and this morning it already has the flavor. If you want your herb tea flavored to do a second fermentation for carbonation just add a little honey or sugar and leave them out like you would for fruits.

  5. Nadia- I love using herbal teas to flavor. Had dinner at a girlfriends last night and sampled 3 of hers- all herbal. One was tulsi rose tea (my favorite, tulsi is an African chill-out, happy times herb), one was a bag of tea called "skin detox" also with rose and other stuff, and the other was coriander and hibiscus (which I was trepidatious with due to AIP. All delicious. I love the color of hibiscus and the flavor of rose is always welcome.

  6. Mo, goat doesn't do the job? Sorry :D

    We sold that goat! A single goat is a lonely goat is a destructive and needy, whiney, crying goat. She had attached herself to my husband so much so that he had to stay in the yard morning to night. We had read this about goats but didn't believe it until we saw it for ourselves. When we move to our land we can have a whole herd of goats.

  7. Also..Nadia and other photo people..what do you upload your photos to before you post them here? I was going to use photo bucket but Beets is annoyed by it. Robin mentioned one but I dont remember which one. Flikr is another one?

    I like the Tapatalk2 app (@$4) for iPhone for uploading pics. It has extra features like stickers, make a meme etc. and it puts the photos right in the text where you want it instead of an external link.
