Kombucha Brewing, with Pictures
Hello, my name is Candy. I've lurked here at mothering.com on and off for quite a while now. I'm relaxing while my four kiddos are napping, and doing one of my favorite things - reading about Kombucha online.
This thread on growing a scoby is amazing, and I think I'll put up a link to it on my website, because many of my readers would love to learn about the info in this thread.
I've been brewing my own Kombucha for about 6 months now, from a scoby baby I got from a friend. I recently put up pictures of my most recent brewing. If you'd like to see my brewing pictures, they are at:http://myblessedhome.blogspot.com/20...-kombucha.html
This evening I will start my next brew. Normall I do two brews a week, of 3 quarts per brew. Today I am going to do three brews, and next week I may up it to four. There are 8 of us living in my cozy home (myself, hubby, my mom, and my four children) and we all love Kombucha, and like to have it with dinner, and between meals. Hence, I need to brew a LOT of Kombucha.
Someone here mentioned that they use flour sack to cover their brewing container, I think?? Anyhow, that's a great idea. I use flour sack to cover my brewing container, and that stuff works great. It's thin enough to allow good air circulation, but thick enough so that you'll have no problem with fruit flies and other pests.
Anyhow, for any new brewers out there, who'd like some pictures, feel free to swing by my site, with the link I left, and leave me a note while you're there.
Be sure I'll be back to this thread later... Keep posting ladies, this thread is AmAzInG!
