    @kimberleegk - you used the phrase "corn sugar" but at least in the U.S. that's not a commonly
    used expression for any type of sugar. Corn syrup is basically glucose, and folks don't use
    that to sweet...

    That's a year-old suggestion you're replying to.

  • Posted in thread: Second Fermentation Scoby on 07-24-2013 at 02:48 PM
    When you say "second fermentation" are you talking about a small (maybe 1/2" to 1" or 12mm to
    25mm) scoby that formed up in the neck of a flip-top bottle during (sealed) secondary
    fermentation? Or do ...

    Your images are out of focus and the busy background makes it impossible to tell whether the
    many dark splotches I see are mold or not.

  • Posted in thread: How to measure sugar and alcohol content on 06-23-2013 at 03:03 AM
    I'm actually glad you bumped this year-old thread because I never did find any specific methods
    to measure either alcohol content or residual sugar content in my home-brewed Kombucha. Still
    hoping som...

    pH around 3 sounds great. I suppose I've had baby-scobys less than 1/4" thick also, depending
    on the temperature in the house - they're thinner in the winter when the house runs cooler.
    Still strange ...

    If the yeast & bacteria in the mail-order scoby aren't very active, it's possible you haven't
    really fermented the tea. Do you have a healthy new baby-scoby that's at least 1/4" thick,
    preferably more...

    Do you have any screw-top bottles lying around? Your theory is that pressure is leaking out of
    the flip-tops, but if you poured your primary ferment into some screw-top bottles at the same
    time, you c...

  • Posted in thread: Found a fruit fly in my kombucha... on 06-16-2013 at 12:43 PM
    Thanks @AZ_IPA, I didn't know that. I knew that common flies are attracted to trash & pet
    waste, and for sure I wouldn't want those any where near my KT. Haven't had any problem with
    fruit flies so I ...

    Large house flies get into all kinds of nasty things, but fruit flies are pretty clean. Bottle
    it & enjoy.
