I purchased 2 bottles GT'S Kombucho. I was going to use it for a starter. Later I noticed later that is was flavored gingerade. Can I use this or should I find no flavor GT's

Thanks

I don't know the science behind kombucha yet so I'm not sure why people recommend ginger only, or plain KT.

I've been using the dregs from any bottle I drink to add to my growing mother. Seems to be working just fine.

you should be fine, but if it doesn't work, go for the unflavored.

It will most likely work to grow a mother, but it might carry the ginger flavor with it. The flavor will probably fade after you make a couple of batches, but I used an unflavored starter to make sure I could have plain kombucha and flavor it how I wanted...
