    Wouldn't I want the second mother to form? This is my first time. I thought a 1/8" to 1/4" new
    mother would be created during the process.Yes, but you don't need to wait for it to finish
    forming befor...

    1 week later and I have a slight film over the surface of the tea. It is a little colder than
    it should be but I think it's close enough... I'll give it another week and see how it's

    This batch is a mix mostly green with some licorice. should be interesting.The last batch was
    green and matte, i think I brewed it too long, it came out extremely bitter.Also, do you know

    Maybe you could say more...sounds like you've got what you need!I have the bare minimum of

    would be gre...

    She looks great!Mold will typically be fuzzy/hairy and green, blue, or grey in appearance.As

    I'm wondering because I recently saw a news article where the owner of a brewery claimed that
    graff is from the 19th century.Here's the quote:"Thomas is also a big fan of graff cider, an
    old-style Ame...

    Good to know.. Do you guys see any reason why I can't use regular dextrin malt instead of the

    I just ordered some dry jasmine flowers.. Whats the difference between flowers and
    "pearls?"Jasmine pearls are "balls" of green tea that have been flavored with Jasmine blossoms.
