My Kombucha Mother or “Scoby” is growing! I started it last week from a GTs Organic and Raw Original Kombucha, and let it be for a week. It is really looking and smelling like some serious Kombucha. The mother is thickening up nicely, its neat how it does not stick to the sides but grow into the shape of the container. I don’t see any mold, but there is a small black build up, it looks like tea particles, it does concern me a little bit. I am going to let it grow for a few more days then transfer it into a larger container with more/fresh tea and sugar. Hopefully that batch I can drink!
Can anyone diagnose these black speckles?
