I found this ad in the free section of craigslist where someone's giving away kombucha cultures. I've never heard of it before, but apparantly it's used to ferment tea?

Wikipedia has some info on it, but I was wondering if any of youse guys has had any real world experience with it. Plus, what other cool things could I do with it?
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
