    Thank you so much for this thread! You all have given me the courage to try brewing in my dorm. I set everything up last night, so we'll see how it goes.

    You have to do it, Bethany!  Once you get into a rhythm, it's easy.
     
    Helen - this has worked for me since May:
    Friday night - bottle flavored booch and refridgerate (I use mason jars and old store bought kombucha bottles - usually get 7 - one per day)
    Saturday - brew tea and leave (covered) out to cool
    Sunday - move unflavored booch (less 2 C) to flavoring jar(s), add flavoring.  Fill booch jar with 2 C of saved booch, scoby and brewed tea.  Return all to pantry.
    Start over the next Friday.  So, 1st ferment is 7 days and 2nd flavoring ferment is 5 days.
     
    The only week I had a problem was when we were at the cabin so I couldn't do the Friday process and it went a couple days too long in the flavoring stage.  It was a big vinegary, but I still drank it.

    You can use both at once to make it go a little faster!  Mine usually are fused (though it's pefectly fine if mama hangs out at the bottom) so I usually just use the whole thing until it seems too big and then I peel off a layer or two.
     
    My simple schedule is just 6 or 7 up from here.  There is a LOT of great information on the 54 pages, though.

    Let the flavored booch sit at room temp for a while.  I do 5 days to get some fizz.  You'll want to test it and find what you like best.  The mama and baby can stay in the hotel until you're ready for them or you can leave the mama in the hotel as a backup and start a new batch with the baby.  It is scary at first!  But, once you get into a routine, it's so easy.
    Read my post above (#1063) for my weekly schedule.  It keeps me in enough booch to have a bottle a day, which is perfect for me.

    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
