So its been a few years since I have brewed kombucha so i did some googleing to refresh myself.
Anyway I came across a few different articles saying that you can no longer use many store bought brands to make a scoby and if you can they are crappy. Because they reformulated the recipe, and one specifically mentioned the brand that I am using. I use the "GT'S" "Enlightened" brand the organic raw kombucha, the unflavored original bottle. they said this was done in 2010 I do not think it has been that long since i made a batch. I started my scoby on April 4th, and no growth yet. I know it cane take a little bit.
Am i wasting my time with brand I use? Is this true? Can you still use Enlightened to make a scoby? Has anyone had any experience or problems with the Enlightened brand?
