    Yes, It is for sure ok. People (including myself) keep scobys in a "scoby hotel" which for me
    is a sealed tuperware container. I keep it closed for weeks at a time, until I need to add more
    tea. The s...

    How will my kombucha be when my house gets into the mid-high 90 degree temps this summer when I
    leave my air conditioning off while I am at work?Ive been brewing constantly for about 6 months
    but have...

    Any updates on your Jun brewing Philnin?

    Don't worry about the scoby piece at the bottom. Ive seen scoby's do that where they grow
    strands between itself and the surface. It sounds like the new scoby is forming nicely. Your

  • Posted in thread: Botched bottling. Looking for insight on 05-02-2013 at 06:41 PM
    I haven't heard of adding culture to the 2nd fermentation container either. What will help is

    Metal, on th...

    yours will most likely be the small.Also there is a $20 minimum purchase amount for shopping

    I guess when ive been reading up on this ive read possible concerns with using plastic but none
    on using wood. I knew things like whiskey and wine are aged indefinitely in wood barrels and
    they use a ...

    Yeah, good point about the vinegar bottles. That crossed my mind as well.But all those plastic
    spigots use a rubber gasket that is on the inside of the container which may be food grade as
    well and be...
