Right on!

I'm using an early batch kombucha to ferment a batch of carrot pickle I have going.
That sounds awesome! Carrot kombucha is one of the many things I plan to try

As a brewer I'm baffled at the wide range of bulls**it that people cling to surrounding kombucha.
Isn't it peculiar?

Are you sure? I think SCOBY might be a bit of a misnomer. There's nothing in the SCOBY other than the lifeless cellulose that isn't in the liquid (someone correct me if I'm wrong). It's not the SCOBY which turns tea to kombucha, it's the microbes which turn the tea into kombucha which make the SCOBY. It's not like you need to put any SCOBY into your brews. I haven't found any benefit in doing it.

My next plan is to make a kombucha-fermented bloody Mary mix. I'm thinking garlic, dill, cumin, tea, tomato juice, chillies, bell pepper, black pepper, and dried fish. I can't wait!
That sounds disgusting :lol: I'd love to be there to try it though!

You like what you like. Experimentation is what has advanced our civilization.
For every 99% sayin it cant be done, that 1% is sayin I'll bet you I can.
