Not my first time making kombucha, but first time in a couple of years. Never had a batch look like this though. My biggest worry is the discoloration of the scoby. Should I toss or let it go?

My SCOBYs usually end up being thick and milky white on top, brown on the bottom. I just peel the brown stuff off the bottom of the SCOBY and throw it in the next batch with the dregs and trub. I have had one culture going for about three years now without any mold growth. Hope this helps.
