Hey Guys -

This morning everything was looking fine, but then I came home to this! The look like bubbles to me, but what do you think?

Thanks!

I'm assuming the white spots are areas of new SCOBY formation. The yeast would here be consuming the sugar and producing CO2 which the bacteria then consumes -- which is why the bubbles appear largely only in areas with white spots.

Keep us posted.
