Not as big as DM's, I bet...but ya Karisa I got it from a friend who used a really wide jar. I don't really know what to do with it. So I just rolled it up and stuffed it in my small jar.

ok, so my Bucha sat in my basement (not underground, my '1st' floor is 1st in front, but 2nd in back) for a few months. It was cold down there...not sure how cold.

It had grown a TON of new scobies in that time and turned almost to vinegar.

I brewed for the 1st time (again) and its been a week. There isn't a new scoby forming and the tea...well looks like tea. There is a slight kombucha taste, but that could be from the starter.

I think my scoby went dormant. How do I wake it up? I really really want to start drinking this stuff!

So I tried doing a 2nd ferment using 100% juice instead of fruit (I used the WIC juice )

and oh, the fizz!! It is soooo good! I think it tastes like fruity soda, but DH says it doesn't, and that it's just been too long since I drank real soda

I poured it out of the big jar (I use one w/a locking lid to 2nd ferment ) into smaller jars to put in the fridge, and it had at least 2-3 inches of foam on top!

I've had three gallons of booch sitting around since the start of the year. I need to get on top of this situation.

I've been drinking some of the super sour stuff from the batch before that one and I don't think me tummy likey.

I like it really sour. I had gotten behind in making it at one point so thought I would hurry it along and just bottle it after two weeks, but it was so sweet it tasted like it had gone bad. Bleck. Four weeks is my happy spot with another week in the bottles on the counter. If it *burns* it's too much, but if it's just strong, it's perfect

But, our house is pretty warm all the time too.... I wonder if that has anything to do w/ it? The warmer temp makes it "brew" faster? It's always between 72-80 because of the woodstove
