Step 8: Date the Vat
Write the date on the vat. Don't expect to remember how long it's been in there.
I expect this batch to be ready for bottling in 9 days or so.
Variables in how much time it takes are type of tea (green or black), type of sugar (white or brown)
how much mother there is, vitality of mother, temperature (warm makes it not tasty, but it gets not tasty in a hurry).
