    Holy cow-there's something slimy on the surface attaching to the side of my jar! Is this the start of Scooby, or just the kombucha sludge gathering all in one place from the original bottles? I can't send a pic b/c I don't want to take the top off.

    Okay..I have one 2 litre jar that is now officially designated as vinegar. Daughter is "over booch" right now (please) and I gifted my trainer with his own SCOBY so I went from "what about me" to "what the heck will I do with all of this booch".

    Okay, I just read FAQs on KombuchaKamp. Someone asked Hannah if using Earl Gray is okay. She said because of bergamot oil, they used to avoid it, but no longer. She uses Earl Gray and green tea because she said the green tea cuts the bitterness of that oil. I say just go for it. Not sure about the lemongrass green tea. Maybe save that for flavoring?

    Ok I will wait another 24hrs and then try, I did squish em, individually as I popped them in. Good point about possiblity of having a batch brew too, though god knows where I'd put it. Supposedly in time you can draw off more than 1 litre at a time..1 litre doesn't last long her between me & the two kids.

    Derval I saw something similar at my neighborhood store last night but the flavors weren't something I wanted. Apple cinnamon and some other. Going to look more carefully today.

    I use frozen a lot because I don't really eat fruit very often. Frozen works great. The mango was fresh because I tasted the frozen mango and it does not taste like mango to me.

    Kb, I am fond of mango. Mine was perfectly ripe. You know..when the skin gets a little wrinkled? I did not care for jalapeno. It tasted like green bell pepper. I did like habenaro. I think its all so personal though.
    You should try what sounds good to you. You may find you need to adjust the recipe to your liking. I could not taste my chocolate tea booch but I am not giving up. :0)

    I just realized I have not named any of my new SCOBYs. Being an ocean girl, Dora is one. Arial another. I will ponder the two babies but at least one should be a boy. Or maybe I will be like House and name them 1,2,3,4.

    Everyone elses' SCOBYS are so nice and smooth and pale compared to mine. Frank is all bumpy and brown with tannin and a bit fuzzy looking with yeast.
    Is it because he is an ugly boy SCOBY? With boy germs?
    Frank does NOT have cooties.
