    Hi All, thanks for the information and interest. Finally, after 9 days, it bubbled. Turns out
    patience is what I needed. However, I will add that one entire batch never bubbled. I believe
    it was becau...

    I made my SCOBY from the GT brand. I think I pulled it too soon (after a month). However, I
    also made one for a friend, and he took it and promptly forgot all about it. He' had an amazing
    SCOBY after ...

    yes, that is correct. It's bottled but not carbonated. Today I did find one of my testing
    bottles was more firm (day 5). I use one plastic bottle to test the carbonation by firmness.
    That bottle felt ...

    My SCOBYs are full of bubbles. I have never had one that was beautiful and white yet. It's like
    an active mess when it's forming..

    such an interesting post. I just watched a video by House Kombucha owner. She said in the vid
    (which seemed to be a few years old) that the company never saves the SCOBYs. They toss
    everyone after eve...

  • Posted in thread: Botched bottling. Looking for insight on 05-01-2013 at 10:45 PM
    I've never heard of adding the culture to the bottle. I thought it would continue to ferment on
    it's own. But I'm having the same issue with my bottled booch. I've heard that leaving it for 4
    days sho...

  • Posted in thread: What is your fermentation vessel? on 05-01-2013 at 10:40 PM
    I use a number of containers but my "go to" big containers are a two and three gallon glass
    containers. One had a spout, which I love because it makes it very easy to fill bottles. Once I
    fill it, I d...

    Hey, I'm new as well. I didn't purchase a kit when I started to brew. I actually just grew a
    SCOBY and then started to brew from there. No kit needed, unless that's really what you have
    your heart set...
