In a continued effort to boost the overall health of the family, I got the bright idea to try my hand at Kombucha.
After researching the pros and cons of making kombucha at home versus purchasing pre-bottled kombucha, I bought this kit through Amazon.
and it tasted like lemon tea.
I wasn't sure if it had gone bad or not so I sought out the advice of friends who have way more experience than I do. It was decided to give it a few days, taste it again and bottle it.
Things seemed to be going well. After three days, all of the sugar taste was gone so I bottled it but it never carbonated and then the SCOBY started getting weird.
Long and short, I ruined my scoby. I have NO IDEA what I did wrong. :-( The only thing I can think of is maybe it had something to do with only getting a small piece of SCOBY in the kit, rather than a whole one.
I want to try it again but I think next time I will see if I can convince one of my friends to give me a SCOBY rather than buying another kit.
So, all you Kombucha aficionados out there if you have any ideas on how I messed up something that seemed super easy, let me know in the comments!
Have a great day!
