Hey Everyone -

So glad I found this forum. My name is Josh, and everything I've read here is so helpful.

I've been drinking store kombucha for a couple weeks now, but wanted to start brewing my own. I followed some online instruction, and grew my own new scoby! I wanted to start now, and brew my own 1 gallon batch, but the container I have is plastic, so I'd rather not use that.

I have a ton of quart jars, (Left over from a project I didnt do) and I know I can use my new scoby to brew a quart size jar. My question though, is can I split my SCOBY is two, and brew two quart sized jars? or even 4 and brew four jars, making a gallon?

It is about 1/8 in thick, and is very healthy looking.

Once again, thanks for welcoming me to the forum! and I look forward to your answers!

I think I may have posted in the incorrect section. Let me try and repost in Kombucha.
