If the stuff on the shelves now is the enlightened then yes it does work, that's how I grew mine, and its 4 gal batches at a time now :-)
Edit: just wanted to add (forgive me its morning lol) I looked for the ones with the most culture grown in the bottle. Then i brought it home and simply took the caps off and coffee filtered the top with an elastic band. I let them grow in the bottle til the co2 was pushing them up into the bottle neck and by that time it was pretty vinegary. I plopped both scobies into a 2L juice jug and gave them a new batch of tea, with a bit less than the usual 1 cup to 1 gal sugar ratio (meaning just under half a cup for 2L) and let them go for about a week. The KT wasnt very good quality at first while they grew, but once I had a solid scoby formed, it just got better with each batch.
So in short, yes it works with the enlightened if thats the only thing on the shelves now lol
