    I drank another one of my 5.5 cups sugar brew, do we call kombucha "brew"?, anyway...it was
    pretty sweet actually. After a month, even. I taste only a bit of tart, if that makes sense,
    very sweet but ...

    I added 5.5 cups sugar to a single gallon my first batch. Everything turned out fine, after
    about 1 month it was fairly vinegary, I bottled it in 16oz bottles and within a few days I had
    very good car...

    I will write more tomorrow or the next day and comment on the rest of your post...for now I
    will comment on the mold......I read everywhere that if any mold grows, throw it away and start
    anew. Person...

    No doubt you're right. I started with 5 cups of sugar for 1 gallon. When things looked as
    though they were not progressing I added more of this and that, here and there. This next batch
    I used the rem...

    Ok, today I opened one of my bottles and do have light carbonation after 3 days. I tasted it
    and it tastes sweet but very alcoholic. Not sure I will enjoy drinking these.So much for my
    signature quote...

    From what I know, Black, Green or a mixture of both work for making Kombucha, no herbal teas
    due to their oils. I think the oils kill the scoby or cause mold.I use organic green tea and
    had recently s...

    Oh, regarding carbonation...anyone have a sure-fire process? I left an inch or so headroom.

    Thank you.I added 1 gallon to my starter quart yesterday and will utilize your suggestion on
    tasting. Already seems to be moving along nicely. I did 1 cup sugar this time around instead of
    5 cups, lol...

    OK, I just finished bottling my first batch of Kombucha. It had been fermenting since the 11th
    of February, 1 gallon. The scoby is very thin on one side and one side is roughly 1/4 inch
    thick. The rea...

    As strong as this round smelled of vinegar I was very hesitant to drink it, I'd recently read
    someone did sip their batch and it burned their throat for a few days, lol, that's not an
    experience I wan...
