Default New pics-dont think its mold?

Okay so I think it's the brown stringy yeast or b vitamin thing but just want to be sure. Sorry it's my first time brewing anything and in a bit paranoid. It does look green but I think it's the link tea. New SCOBY is think so just be time to bottle? (14 days)

It does appear to be growing under the SCOBY not on top.

Definitely yeast strands. You can rinse them right off, strain the tea. Use your sense of taste to determine when your tea is ready.
Do you plan on doing a secondary ferment or consuming as is? Was this the green pom tea from earlier thread?

Yes it was my green pomegranate tea and it's DELICIOus! Thanks everyone for the help, once I pulled the mother out it was definitely brown strains, I think it just looked green from the pink tea lol. Yes it's fermenting in all different flavors. Then I just stick in fridge right?

In attaching a pic of my SCOBY rinsed. I cut the small one off for next batch, was that silly? I'm starting a continuous brew now but I bought plain kombucha for next starter liquid no more silly flavors.

Looks good to me! I've seen the same "yeast strands" on a lot of my kombucha batches.
