    ABOUT ME

  • I'm Sdaji. I like Turnips and kombucha and snakes and skydiving and rats and long hair. I'm a tall, lanky Australian. G'day, mate.
  • Snake breeding stock trader.
  • your full name
  • Happy stuff.
  • When I was too young to buy beer I brewed my own. When I was too poor to buy beer I brewed my own. I haven't brewed beer since I was a teenager, but I brew kombucha 'cause it's fun and yummy and healthy.
  • Kombucha and more kombucha and if I get less lazy, beer. Cheese and sauerkraut and vinegar and salami and ginger beer and stuff would be cool too if I ever get sufficiently motivated.
  • What the?
  • My secondary what?
  • Anger? No, not really. I have milk in the fridge, that's in a bottle. I also have some Bourbon and some soda water and vanilla essence... I have heaps of stuff in bottles.

    I got lazy with my cultures, left them all for months, tried to make new batches from them and
    none of them worked. Well, some smell like kombucha, some have SCOBYs but all have mould as
    well. Damn. I...

    You raise some good points, but none of it is definitive.My reckoning is that the probiotic
    benefit is likely to be there (it makes sense, kombucha microbes thrive in a very acidic
    environment, so if ...

    There are obviously live microbes in kombucha. The fact that you use kombucha as a source of
    microbes to make more kombucha is pretty clear evidence of that! The fact that if you leave
    kombucha longer...

    Oh wow, I just read the first article! What a load of crap! Kombucha isn't going to give you
    hepatitis or anthrax! ANTHRAX? For crying out loud, what nonsense.And how is kombucha going to
    interact dan...

    Peculiar article. He says the health benefits are unsubstantiated (mostly true) but then after
    dismissing almost all of what is said about kombucha he goes on to give some completely
    unsubstantiated r...

    Can you explain why they can't?The microbes exist in the highly acidic environment, they're
    specialised microbes. The digestive system is acidic. I'm no expert on probiotics, but I don't
    see anything ...

    There are live yeast and bacteria in the SCOBY, just as there are live people inside a bus or a
    building. Or maybe it's more like there are live pigs in a pig pen, and after a while a layer
    of $H!t bu...

    porcupine: I've wondered about that. I imagine it would brew normally, but it would be
    interesting to try.saramc: The 'SCOBY' is porous, like a sponge. I could get the exact same
    result you did by put...

    I've tried it in side by side brews lots of times now. Say, a litre of new sweet tea in each,
    50ml of liquid and a 50ml SCOBY in one and 100ml of liquid and no SCOBY in the other. It seems
    the liquid ...

    I've been experimenting with not using SCOBYs when setting up cultures. I get lovely, thick,
    well-formed SCOBYs. I started wondering how adding a SCOBY was doing anything, since I heard
    about other pe...
