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 am dying from laughter here. Susan. Stop it (not really) ahahahahhaha

 

Serious - what's up with the plastic skirt for booch?

 

@Mo If I have access to computer I upload it to the photobucket. They have an app to, but it's useless for this forum since we can't have full editor. I bought a regular tapatalk thing. I wonder if we are using our storage similar to when you just attache a file here using it. I love your memes and hearts and everything.  I believe that Instagram extension works, but Flickr - no go, I've tried.

I wish I had cute doggies to post pictures of :(  We've never lived somewhere where we can have a pet, and on occasion I will trot out "if we don't get a cat soon, I will die".  As hubby pointed out to me the other day, I've been saying this for 10 years.  Death is probably not imminent.

 

Anyway, here is my pet substitute.  Does it look ok?  The edge on one side has decided to do some underwater diving.

This one shows the surface better:

The surface is so bumpy I thought maybe it is going through puberty and I should start expecting backchat and slammed doors.

 

Who needs a cat anyway?

Lol..glad you did not pass away from catlessness. Kind of reminds me of when my daughter told me that if I didn't let her have a bowl of sugar for breakfast, she would die. I am happy to report she is still with us.

SCOBY looks happy. Bumps and brown colors are from gasses and tannins from the tea.

Yay, I love showing off pictures!  Jars, SCOBYs and cats.  This is definitely my favourite thread.

 

My brewing jar has a 6 litre (about 1.5 gallon) capacity.  Any recommendations for amounts of water, sugar and tea bags?  I'll be using black tea.

Confession. Just decided to brew sweet tea for my 2 SCOBYs. My favorite thing is to dissolve the sugar into the strong tea and taste it before I add the other 8 cups of water. Well...I am keeping Derval company on a W 30 so I couldn't do it. I gave it to Olivia. :)
