longtime health-nut/weirdo here. finally broke the piggy bank to pickup a harsch fermenting crock pot for making sauerkraut/kimchi/etc and along the way i started reading about other fermented foods and i've also decided to jump in the world of kefir and kombucha. i ordered a kombucha scoby from ebay (as well as my milk kefir grains) and am impatiently awaiting their arrival. i plan to make a quart-size batch of kombucha immediately following the scobys delivery and then eventually split the mother/baby scobys up into a few additional batches to 'provide my fix'.
i'm new to all of this, but after the initial fermentation, im looking to bottle up with some extra goodies and then let sit for a 2nd fermentation to provide more fizz before being refrigerated. the additional flavors and 2nd fizz are mainly in hopes to entice my wife and 2yo son to participate in the consumption of my supadupa health elixir
anyways, i dont know much about bottles but from some googling it appears that using the Grolsch/flip-top/ezcap bottles in the color amber are the best way to go. is this a decent deal?
i checked craigslist and found a couple ads (with little to no information) and have emailed but am honestly not sure if they included the tops, or if they're amber/clear/green, or any of that jazz.
here's the ebay auction where i ordered my scoby/kefir-grains from:
so Hi All!
