    Is this mold on my scoby?

    Hey everyone! This scoby in progress has some weird slightly blue-ish thing going on as you see in the middle of the picture. Is it mold or just... puberty? ;) Thanks in advance, Jim

    Trying to grow scoby first time, can you help me?

    I’m trying to grow a scoby for first time and now there’s something under my starter liquid(?) but isn’t normally scoby flat, and these are like fuzzy balls😅 so is this mold or scoby or something else?

    Kombucha Mold?

    Im making my 1st batch of Kombucha. I purchased a kit. My scoby sunk to bottom and is still there. It has been 7 days. I see a white film forming on the top and one small spot of green mold. Looks like a crumb may have fallen in. Do I have to toss everything or will scoby be ok since he's on...

    Scoby comes out of the liquid

    Hello, I just brewed my first batch with a starter kit. First 2 days, scoby was floating , starting from the 3rd day, it came out of the liquid partially. I am afraid that it will dry and die. What should I do? Is this normal?
