  1. Hi Beets - I read the same thing too about GT, but that was after I made a beautiful, perfect Scoby using plain GT kombucha. I ignored that article and now my second beautiful, perfect Scoby from plain GT is almost finished. So far so good. I start bottling my first batch with my new scoby tomorrow. Can't wait to see how it all turns out.
  2. Uh-oh! We're supposed to "burp" the bottles? What does this mean? If anyone is a prime candidate for a Kombucha Explosion it would be me. Things like that just happen to me, lol. So, if I bottle my Kombucha, and leave it on the counter for 4 days to let it fizz, at what point do I "burp" the bottles? And how do I do that? Thanks. Lisa
  3. Wow! There are some great flavor suggestions in this thread so far. Thanks everyone. So far I've only made the plain version and cherry flavored. I added 1 ounce of organic cherry juice (cherries the only ingredient) into a 16 ounce bottle. The first time I added 2 ounces of juice and the Booch was too sweet. I'm bottling my first batch with my own Scoby tomorrow and I think I'm going to experiment with blackberries, blueberries and lemon. Yum. kb0426 - your mango-blackberry-jalapeno sounds amazing. If you make it, please let us know how it tastes, and how many jalapeno peppers you added. Good luck, everyone!
  4. I just started making my own Kombucha a little over a month ago. I've also made two perfect Scoby's following the information in the link above (I hope it works). Super easy, and my Kombucha is delicious. Thanks for getting this started. Lisa

    I love plain club soda with frozen fruit instead of ice: peaches, strawberries, blueberries, etc. Delicious and very refreshing.

    Loss of appetite on second Whole30?

    Funny you mention this. I am on day 12 of my second Whole 30 (45) and experiencing a similar loss of appetite. This was definitely NOT an issue during my first W30. Lately, I find I'm very hungry in the morning, but not so much as the day goes on. I often force myself to eat lunch or dinner and get full very quickly, but I do make sure I eat a big, healthy breakfast. I crave nothing and I never think about food unless I'm starving. I'm sorry I don't have any advice for you, but it would be interesting to know if others have this experience. Personally I don't "think" you're doing anything wrong. I wonder if it's your body just adapting to how much food you really need after all. It will be interesting to hear what others have to say. Hang in there.
