Any home Kombucha brewers here?

#1 Postby all zen » Mon May 06, 2013 4:54 pm

I started my first Kombucha SCOBY a few weeks back and noticed last night on the "baby" SCOBY that had formed there was a tiny tiny bit of green mold forming :( Do I throw the entire batch out or can you just toss the top scoby and be ok?

I had a kombucha in the airing cupboard years ago, and found it a weirdly stressful process due to it looking unappetizing/smelling weird and the end results never tasting quite right (maybe it's just better carbonated?) I think in the end it got forgotten about and thrown out. Kefir was much easier but nowhere near as nice. I might try kombucha again some day soon though, if I can find someone with a SCOBY.

I thought about trying it, but the risks I have read about bacteria getting in, and the immaculate process needed to keep in sterile kind of scared me off. I'll stick to my (4 bucks a bottle) store bought stuff for now.

Never tried it yet, but came across this just the other day...
