Growing My Own Kombucha Scoby - Page 25
I used GT daves back in May to start my own scoby and had no problems until I ran out of jars to put all the new scoobies in, lol. I have moved since then and gave them away to a neighbor but am hoping to start again with another bottle of GT daves. I hope it hasn't changed over the summer!
I like to mix the 'brewed' kombucha with a little ginger, or mint leaves and lavender then cork it and leave it in a dark cool shelf not the fridge.
OK, Don't Laugh (if you can help it)
I was growing my own little Scoby from bottled kombucha. I put the jar on the top shelf in my kitchen cabinet. I was documenting its progress by taking pictures every couple of days and sending them to my sister. (She started trying to grow one at the same time) It was doing soooo good, nice thin little baby growing on the top. So today, while taking my picture...
I DROPPED MY PHONE IN!!!!! (I'll take a short break now so you can catch your breath from laughing!)
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum....(Have you caught your breath yet?)
OK... Needless to say, my beautiful little baby scoby folded over on itself and is now laying on the bottom of the jar. So, have I killed it or contaminated it or what.
Just in case you are wondering, my phone is still working...for now.. volume does seem to be affected somewhat though..
