    Of course I checked on my pet this morning before I left.  No change.
     
    In all seriousness, I am grateful to this forum!  I would never have had the guts to try this without you guys.  It seemed totally overwhelming.  And how fortunate that we have so many different time zones involved.  I am really not one to "freak out", but I did freak out at 11:15 (EST) last night and NEEDED an answer.  Thank you Susan!
     
    P.S.  My husband thinks I am NUTS...caught me in the playroom with a flashlight last night checking out the surface of my science project.

    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".

    Hi There - I'm kinda late to this booch brewing party....  Been considering to start making Kombucha for a while.  I'm still not convinced that I have enough room to making it.... But with all the fantastic flavours I'm seeing listed here - I think I could get very excited about this....
     
    Nadia - I read in a much earlier post that you have some Scoby babies.... If I make the decision to go through with this project would I be able to get some from  you?  I have a bit of a nomad lifestyle and live between Toronto and Montreal.  So I am in Toronto often enough (generally 2 weeks out of every month).  Plus I would like to get some possible pointers and hints if at all possible. 
     
    Let me know.....
     
    Cheers

    Just a little tingle of fizz, nothing crazy.  Raspberry-vanilla very tasty.  Even hubby said "hmm, not bad" after a sip.

    I was actually thinking of printing it all out and highlighting, labeling, obsessing...while I watch Scooby grow.
     
    I hope it's not unlucky to name your Scoby before it's born.  Hatched.  Grown. Whatever.

    Sophie, any news? First sip? Converted hubs? 
     
    Susan, any freezing success? Btw - I put loose tea for flavoring, no tea bags.

    I have had fine results with frozen.  Much better for winter 'cause I can use my summer frozen fruit and not have to buy mealy tasteless stuff in the markets.  I have tried bottling with cayenne peppers, whoa buddy, that was an experience.  I think I would rather it with jalapeno and perhaps cilantro and lime, or even jalapeno, pineapple, and lime.

    Did anyone try making any with the jalapeno yet?  Nadia mentioned that the mango did not translate well, but I still want to make mango blackberry jalapeno.  Minus the seeds, of course .  Imagine a geyser of that in your eye!

    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.
