Can I get a SCOOBY?
Anybody willing to send me an itty bitty baby? I'd be willing to cover a reasonable amt for postage...

Hello, I'm new to Kombucha and would like to try it out. Anyway someone would be able to send me a scoby? I will pay for it... at least the postage if that's all you need. Thanks! :)

Best way to start growing a SCOBY
I was wondering if growing a new SCOBY in a smaller jar then moving it to a bigger jar would help quicken the process of SCOBY development? Also, what is the best way to produce a thick, fairly uniform SCOBY? And can I use an old (cleaned) shirt as a cheese cloth to cover the jar, or will that not provide enough ventilation?

Any advice on growing a healthy SCOBY from scratch is welcomed. Thanks.

Hey! I've been looking for a few large healthy kombucha SCOBYs to start brewing in 2 gallon jars. I was wondering if it were possible for you to send me some uncontaminated and vibrant scobys that I can start using right away. I can cover postage and whatever you feel would be necessary. Let me know.

Thanks, Tony

I have some scobys as well. They are really easy to develop yourself, if you all have time, tea, sugar, and a bottle of kombucha.

It looks like there are a few people here who have scobys, and a few that are looking for them. I haven't received any PMs, but if anyone is looking for one, PM me, or any of the others that offered theirs. I usually "retire" my old scobys in the mulch bin, but I'm sure they would be happier to go to someone who would use them for something other than mulch.
