Just curious, but how many batches do you have "brewing" at one time? I think I might start staggering batches so I can always have some ready to drink.
I only have one batch brewing since I am new to all of this. This is really my first "real" batch so far, since I used the other one mainly for growing the Scoby. This is the first one I will bottle and drink.
ETA: I just bottled my first batch of kombucha! I filled up three 25-oz swing-top cork bottles--one flavored with dried tart cherries, one with fresh ginger and lemon, and one with raspberry juice concentrate--plus one 16-oz GT's bottle, also flavored with raspberry. I set aside another cup or so of the brew for drinking right away (tasted GREAT!), and the rest is in a glass bowl with the Scoby floating in it...waiting for the new batch of tea to cool off enough to add them back in.
While I was handling the Scoby (the kids and DH all wanted to see it...and touch it... except youngest DD who said it looked too "wierd" and she was scared to touch it) the original "mother" Scoby, about 4" diameter, completely separated from the larger "baby" Scoby, which is about 6-1/2" diameter. I don't have another container for brewing separate batches, however, so I guess I will put them both back into the new batch of tea. I think this will be okay, yes?
