Kombucha 2

Kombucha might not be a failure after all, I found out after my last panick induced post!  My new BFF, Michael (aka, Bacteria Pimp) told me it was jsut doing it's thing & to let it go a few more days & post more pictures & to taste it for goodness' sake!

Well I think that the new scoby is ok... even if the baby is thin you can add just a little extra starter like 15% instead of 10% or you can put the thin baby in with the original momma in the next cycle of new sweet tea... as for the sweet taste... You'll just have to experiment... I never can make it the same way twice... It is always gonna be a surprise.. sometimes it comes out really well

Oh it looks so scary, hahahaha. I'll have to start reading about your SCOBY adventure. I need to read up on Kombucha brewing!

Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
