I even tried diluting it with some water and it's just too strong. I really like the kombucha that I buy from the store but this tasted completely different. Maybe it's because he gave me a HUGE piece?


you could make some fresh tea and add it into the brewed tea. sometimes i let my 'bucha brew too long and this is what i do...it will have an interesting sweet&sour kinda flavor, but at least it's palatable. lol.

Is it necessary to separate the mother and baby mushroom (is that the same as a scoby?) after making each batch of Kombucha?

No, you can leave them together until they get too big and take up too much room to be practical to use.
