Default Different Scobys

Hi.. I was just wondering what everyone r thinks about different scobys? Do you think that if you were to use a different scoby ( possibly one from a friend or from an scoby exchange) it would make a different tasting KT?

Very possible. Especially if that scoby came from a different area. It could be grown on different water types, or contain different microbes, collected from the air, that you may not have. You never know. Get a different one, try it in a separate jar in a location away from your regular jars, and see how it turns out with the same tea. And keep notes ;
