Keep in mind, brewing kombucha at home can be very risky. If your SCOBY ever looks strange to you, consult someone you know who is an experienced kombucha brewer. If not, discard the SCOBY and start over – never take risks with your digestive health. Also never store kombucha in anything made out of ceramic or plastic. Stick to glass. If you are new to brewing kombucha and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me.
