How is this going? Mine is not doing so well - maybe needs the warm weather.

oh, what is happening to it?  not fermenting?   what was your recipe?   what "mother" did you start with?

me, i got the jars, got the mother, now ... just waiting a moment to make the tea and start the process.
It was fermenting slow. Temps are lower in winter. I used a bottle of plain kombucha from the store. I got a kit from the co-op the first time I ever did it. I still can't tell whether the health benefits are real or whether it is another health craze like coconut oil.

a kombucha scoby is the thing floating in the top of the ferment - the bacterial thingy that grows. One can transfer a part of one into a new batch of sugured tea & make some more kombucha.  google kombucha scoby.


Mark de LA says
One rapidly creates more scobies than the desire to make more kombucha & sometimes keeps them in a jar in the refrigerator & occasionally keeps them wet & feeds them sugar.
