Default Have Some Basic Questions About Brewing Kombucha

I just recently got a new scoby and started a batch of kombucha. It's been a week and the tea smells and tastes delicious, however, it's not fizzy at all. I've read the cure for this is second fermenting in a bottle but I'm worried that the yeast cultures with the scoby are dormant or no longer viable. Please let me know your thoughts.

Go ahead and bottle it - they should be fine. The 2nd ferment is where you get to play around with flavors . (be careful of bottle bombs though!!)
