Well, I'm back and ready for my beloved Kombucha.

I haven't brewed in a few years. Instead of going for a commercial Scoby, I was wondering if anyone had one they'd sell me? Would $25 cover the Scoby in 1-2 cups of Kombucha, and postage to Texas?

Thanks!

You can make your own scoby very easily. Buy plain kombucha, put two cups of it in a jar with two cups of sweet tea and cover it with a coffee filter. After a few weeks you will have a nice scoby.

Hi Barb - i just bought my first one from amazon - $8 - various sellers at this price - got mine from a company called Fermentaholics from St. Pete, FL. Arrived in 2 days and was as described. Started my first batch (1 gallon jar) and after 5 days have a very nice, large baby already on the top...

I grew mine from a bottle of GT I bought but I really like Kombucha Kamp and have purchased things from them with good results.

I also grew a 2nd SCOBY from scratch from a bottle of unflavored KTs booch. After a few batches it has grown a few layers now in my gallon jar. I'm using that one exclusively with green tea and it is making some fantastic, very bubbly kombucha...

I actually threw away mine recently when I decided to stop Brewing kombucha. But 1 you could make your own from a commercial bottle that hasn’t been pasteurized. Or 2, oddly enough amazon sells them if you can’t find someone oh here to send you one.
