  • Posted in thread: Started fermenting a new batch. Is this mold? on 09-21-2012 at 05:53 PM
    Certain molds are more powdery than fuzzy. The green color is a clue. There is only 1 known
    bacteria that produces a green pigment, and that is not what it looks like. Yeast does not
    produce that type...

    I think they are used as scrubbers to remove scale during cleaning, not left in the water
    during heating. I think leaving it in there would invite contamination and more buildup of
    scale on the descal...

    I'm not a legal expert, but my guess is that as long as you're not using the name, it's just
    another ingredient in your product. "CherCher's Kombucha" vs "CherCher's Lipton Tea Kombucha."

    I pulled off the SCOBY after 1 week and dropped in a few squashed strawberries and blueberries.
    After another week, it had an amazing flavor.

  • Posted in thread: How Do You Describe the Flavor of Kombucha? on 09-21-2012 at 02:36 PM
    I think of it as a vinegary-apple cidery flavor.

    My only input is that I don't steep nearly that long. I think the tea gets too bitter-tasting.
    I use that number of tea bags, but steep it until it has a nice flavor for drinking.

    That looks suspicious enough that I'd consider scrapping that batch. Hopefully you have some KT
    or another SCOBY to start right up again.

    I'd leave it alone for a week or so, until you see a more solid-looking, white SCOBY forming.
    It takes awhile, especially when starting fresh.

  • Posted in thread: New to Kombucha. Alternate method?? on 07-31-2012 at 05:44 PM
    The problem with the variation that I see in my different batches is that there is no way to
    know which one is "right." Also, I don't know that my SCOBYs have truly changed, I was just
    speculating tha...

  • Posted in thread: New to Kombucha. Alternate method?? on 07-20-2012 at 05:06 PM
    I started a SCOBY from a bottle of KTs original raw Kombucha. The KT I get from that SCOBY is
    milder and tastes a little watered down, even several generations later, than the stuff I'm
    getting from t...
