Hi fellow bucha brewers,

As the title states, this is my first time brewing and I'm concerned about the SCOBY that's growing in my jar. It doesn't look consistent with other pictures of growing SCOBYs and videos of SCOBY time-lapses. Should it look wrinkled like this or am I in trouble?

Sorry for the poor picture angle, but it's in my dark pantry and I didn't want to disturb the jar.

Any advice is appreciated.

I've never had one that looks like that.
The batch has that familiar kombucha smell. I have a ph meter coming in the mail. Once it arrives, I'll test it to make sure it's acidic enough for consumption.
