    First bad batch in 10 years

    Maybe my SCOBY hotel didn't get kept clean enough. I don't know. Sicker than a dog. Twice. My question is, can I rinse off my best looking SCOBY and add a tablespoon of vinegar to my next brew? I don't have any good starter tea. Thanks for any help/ideas

    Using kombucha for starter tea

    I do 3 gallons at a time and store the starter tea with the mothers. The longer time between brews it seems the mothers suck up the starter tea and I end up short. Can I use some of my kombucha as a starter? It's mildly flavored with blueberries and ginger. Thanks.

    Glyphosate Free Beer / Grains

    Propaganda from a pro GMO website, several years old. Just keep believing the poisons they spray on our foods aren't harmful. I'm done.

    Glyphosate Free Beer / Grains

    I really like the fact that this is being discussed. There should be a Glyphosate free option. I would opt to buy it everytime. Believe it or not, there is a growing movement away from chemical/ pesticide growing for our food supply. It has been linked to the spike in illnesses like Celiac...

    Glyphosate Free Beer / Grains

    I special order organic grain for that reason. Vote with your dollar. Don't buy that crap and they will have to change their methods. Organic grain is Roundup free.

    Second Hot Break?
