Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered


Recommended Posts

It's okay. There are over 500 posts in this thread. Very hard to pick out the answer you need without a table of contents. :0) We were all nervous nellys at first.

 

Yeah, I think you should add a table of contents Susan.  Once it is done, I will steal it copy it into the first comment ;).

Hi! Susan had a wonderful idea of having one place where it is all things related to making/brewing Kombucha could be asked and answered. There are several of us that are newbies at this (me) a

Awesome idea! Plus one for the n00bs right here ... Three weeks ago I didn't know what kombucha was, and now I (hopefully) have a pet SCOBY growing in my kitchen. Either that or I am farming mould.

Just thought I'd share a pic of my 2 1/2 gallon SCOBY and brew, Denver, started by a dear friend and jazz musician several years ago from a bottle of GT's. He passed it along to me when he moved

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.

 

KB-I was assembling my receipts (I'm an accountant...I keep all receipts) to return the tea until I remembered something.  I like tea!  LOL.

Waiting til tonight to try (it's morning here).  Promised myself I'd give it two days!

 

It doesn't look very fizzy :(  Probably should have filled the bottles up more!

I don't have any clue about all the photo apps you guys talk about.  If I can take a pic on my ipad and simply attach it, you will see the Scooby snack!  Otherwise I might have to wait for my nephew to show up and work his tech saavy magic.  :)

 

By the way, I drank a bottle of grape last night right before bed and slept fantastically, so I guess it wasn't the caffeine after all that was keeping me up.  Maybe it was booch envy!

Ok I am being impatient .. tomorrow is Day 7.  How much longer do I have to wait? :rolleyes:

 

i also just found out my co-worker also brews his own kombucha.  I told me he could have gave me a scoby!  anyways, he said he lets it sit for 2 weeks before drinking.  blah.

I use photobucket.  Nadia put me onto it - before that I was completely photo-on-web illiterate.  But we're all given a limited amount of space here on the site so you can directly attach a few photos :)

Oh really?  I wouldn't know.  Hubby is anti-Apple so we don't have such things in this house!

 

I would definitely be down with trying beets kombucha!  Do you just roast the beets before they go in?  Any magical pixie dust secrets? :P

Definitely trying peach ginger basil next time! 

 

I just swapped out a new batch.  Orange flavored starting 2nd ferment, new batch brewing with scoby and baby scoby moved to the hotel with grandma.  Fun!

Did your son help you out with bottling?  The orange was his idea wasn't it? :)

Orange vanilla creates the most swypo cream soda flavor ever. 

 

As per my posts above (sorry for the broken record peeps) beets - bake them, cut them, add them. Keep couple days in a fridge after straining. Flavors mixed with orange juice I've added. I think a bit of strawberry will be awesome to add. I also love carrots. Carrot+ginger, Carrot+apple and carrot cake pie spices :D All are good!
