lavagal Gross? On the left are two really big (10-inch) SCOBYs from my continuous brew. I kept one in the dispenser. On the right are three smaller but very thick SCOBYs I have stored. I am having success with making fizzy #kombucha with these SCOBYs. Anyone on Oahu interested in adopting one and starting their own production? Lemme know. I have another dispenser going and probably three more SCOBYs in there! All you need is a big jar, sweet black tea and one of these mamas! 2w

lavagal I have two kombucha batches on continuous brew. These four have ginger-craisins for second ferment. Four are unflavored for second ferment. Love these bottles! They should be ready in 7-10 days. I will burp the bottles every few days. 2mon
