The yeast and the bacteria are wild, so what you really need is a starter. You can use mother of vinegar or some wine yeast and organic apple cider vinegar to get the colony going, and then add a little tea and sugar once you get some formation. Keep it warm (~70).

Thanks guys, I just realized I forgot to update. I found some GT at choices market in a nearby town...been buying it nearly everyday since while waiting for my culture to develop. Sooooo good. I have one batch going according to directions on making it from a bottle, and I have another going just by opening a bottle of GT and covering it with coffee filter and elastic around the neck. We'll see which goes better, faster, stronger etc
