Default Is this normal???

Hi everyone,

This is my first batch of Kombucha.. can someone tell me if the 'stuff' on the inside of the jar above the water line is normal?

I didn't sterilize the jar in boiling water but I washed the jar thoroughly to ensure it was absolutely clean.

I used white sugar and white tea, the Kombucha has been brewing for about 5 days.

*The last two pics describe what I'm talking about*

Thanks very much.

B.

P.s. Sorry about the double post

Looks fine to me that is some of the yeast sticking to the side of the container, i have seen that many many times in brewing beer and i have the same thing happening in my first batch of kombucha, i just swirl the jar a bit to get it back in the liquid.

Super! I'm glad to hear it. I would've disappointed if I had to throw it and start again... having said that, I would've been more disappointed if it had been something nasty and I ended up with a nasty case of the sh**s

Thanks very much for the reply (and the reassurance!)
