I have been brewing kombucha for over a month now so I am still new at this but I did do a lot of reading up first. I bought my first scoby in a kit that came with a big bag of tea and a piece of scoby for one gallon at my local natural grocers store. Most recipes call for one cup of sugar per gallon of tea, so this is what I use and it has been coming out great. Also, I started my first gallon by heating it on a yogurt maker which kept the kombucha at 80-85 degrees and the first batch took only 9-10 days. I used a large piece of black construction paper to create a cylinder to block any light like you recommended. Each subsequent batch only took about 7 days since the scoby grew bigger and provided more active yeast for the fermenting process. On the third batch, I split up the scoby so I could brew two gallons at once and on the third batch, I took the scoby from both gallon jars and threw them into a 6 gallon big mouth glass fermenting jar, ordered a warming belt and temperature controller and it took off like a rocket. I am now on my second 6 gallon batch and I have a beautiful light cream colored scoby growing that I can always cut off some to give to friends if they decide to brew their own.
Also, I use the double ferment method to add flavor and more fizz to the already wonderful and healthful mixture. To do this, all you have to do add a little fruit to the jars you are going to cap and seal, and let them sit at room temperature for a few more days. I always test mine after two days by slowly unscrewing the lid and seeing if it starts to fizz, if it does, I put it in the refrigerator to freeze the fermentation process, if it doesn't, I leave it out until it does which usually doesn't take more than another day or two.
