Congrats! I started my first SCOBY from the gingerade flavor, and it worked like a charm. I've read that it's better not to start with the flavored ones, but I'm not sure why.
I also found the first SCOBY to be fairly thin, but now three batches in, the older ones are getting a bit thicker with every batch, and the new baby Scobys are looking better and better from the get go.
It seems like once you get them established, they thrive.
