I just heard yesterday that it is possible to brew kombucha using two bottles of store-bought stuff and just adding your tea/sugar mixture. I heard this by way of my local wapf chapter leader, who heard it from a friend of a friend. Soooooo...I'd be willing to try it though.<br><br>
I don't know anything about how to grow your own scoby, but I make loads of kombucha myself, and I find that if some of it gets left in the bottle (after I brew it I bottle it to keep the fizz), eventually...like within a few days/week, it will have started its own little scoby. Downright NASTY to get in your mouth! Like a big gob of phlegm. But it seems to me you could just use that to get a scoby, eventually.
