I know this thread should probably be under raw foods but I figured since its a local question I would plant it here. Anyone in the RI or Mass area growing scobies for kombucha? And would be willing to share? My hubby and I used to make our own kombucha but recently moved and our scobie didn't make it. I would be happy to purchase one or even better, trade back some yummy kombucha once its made. Thanks!

Yes! We tried our hand at that but were not as successful, but I would love to try it out again. Do you mind to PM me and we could work something out for a pick up?

Thanks again for the scoby. I am so excited to start brewing again. It was great to meet you. You have a beautiful family and home!

I will let you know how the final product turns out. :)

How long do they last in the fridge? Mine are in glass and immersed in brewed kombucha tea... but they've been there for months. Are they ok if they look & smell normal?

joyrises, brew some sweet tea and try it out!!  i bet the culture is still active, just dormant.  i have a scoby that has survived at least 3 months of refrigerator time with no refresher and been just fine.  the worst that can happen is you will have to throw out some tea.  it's pretty low-risk :)
