Does anybody have spare kombucha culture?
Topic by corey_caffeine | last reply
Hi, my kombucha SCOBY has white uneven colour spread on the top surface. Are they mold? They smell fine, but I am not sure if it's safe. It's been left for few weeks in the tea, in the glass bottle, and it was my first blew. I boiled water for 15 min to make this batch and followed instruction to keep everything washed etc, just as how I do with milk kefir and water kefir. The SCOBY I received from friend had yellowish even colour on its surface, so I am not sure if I had done right.....Can someone plz shed a light on it? thank you.

I have the materials to make it but have never done it before. Can someone walk me through how to make 2 gallons of tea and apply the scoby after the tea is room temperature. I have general knowledge but need confidence to do it with out a hitch.

I need something to heat a bucket of kombucha tea to 70 degrees Fahrenheit when the heat is off in the kitchen where I will be keeping it. The temperature dips below 50 degrees Fahrenheit in there. I also need something to warm sprouting jars, which I'll be keeping on a shelf that I plan to enclose with a window blind or something else to keep the heat in, but allow ventilation. I don't think I need a thermostat for either of these. The temperature doesn't have to be exact. For the kombucha, I could buy a heating pad for $60 or a heat belt for $20 and pay to have them shipped or I could go to the local aquarium store and buy some fish tank heaters, but I'd prefer to spend less, make something myself out of something old and not support an aquarium store. I'm not a big fan of fish prisons. The thrift stores around here have lots of old appliances for $2-$5 each. I thought I could make heaters using the heating element of one of the small potpourri pots I've seen at Goodwill. I saw online that these pots are heated with a wire wrapped around the (irremovable) pot. Any thoughts on how I could make heaters with this heating element that are safe and not too hot? Any ideas using other appliances? Another option would be to find a cheap heating pad (for heating people) without auto shutoff and use that on the Kombucha at least. I'm not sure that that would be warm enough though, but maybe it's a more worthwhile option that trying to make a heater. What do you think? Should I forget making something for the Kombucha and look for a heating pad instead? Thanks for your help.
