7 days and the 5 gallon carboy is all good. My two mamas have now merged to one big smooth mama. As for flavor, I could taste some tea tenons yesterday but not so much today. The sweet tea taste is all but gone and I think I may bottle tomorrow.

On a fermentation note, it seems two weeks in an ez-cap 16oz bottle with half of a quarter tsp of sugar is great for fizz and body. Glad I went to the 5 gallon carboy as 2 weeks is a long wait. At least I will soon have stock.

Glad to hear it went well! I don't quite have the time/space to ferment/bottle 5 gallons of kombucha (beer takes priority, or course), but I am thinking of starting to use my mr. beer keg (2 gallons) for kombucha, so we'll see how that goes. It's got a spigot right on it so I can just pour straight into the bottles and dump the new tea right into the top.
