I've been growing kombucha for a month or two, and it's been delicious, but my scoby seems to be getting thinner and thinner.


Am I not giving it enough to grow on? :)


I've been making the following recipe:


4 cups water

1/4 cup sugar (sometimes I've used 1/3 cup)

two tea bags - one green and one orange pekoe


Does this sound like a good ratio of ingredients?


The kombucha is also not very fizzy or strong tasting.


I need help before this poor scoby peters out!
