My latest obsession

22 Jun

I’ve wanted to make kombucha for a while, but it’s been just that – a want. I haven’t pursued it aggressively because I knew that when the time was right, it would happen.

When my friend Laura posted a photo of her scoby on her Facebook page, I knew that I had to ask her to keep me in mind when she had a scoby to spare. She obliged, and my kombucha journey started last night.

I’d already started a Pinterest board so I could keep all of my information together. And I started collecting recipes in anticipation that I’d have plenty of kombucha to play with.

Yesterday, I brewed my tea, mixed in the sugar, and when it was cool, I added my gifted scoby and the liquid it came in. I put it in a darkened corner of the kitchen, covered with a cloth to keep the bugs out and the air flowing. Hopefully, in about 10 days, I’ll have some kombucha ready for a second fermentation – the one that makes it fizzy!

I’ll try to keep updated on the progress.
