Kombucha fabric experiment: day 19

kombucha fabricI checked in on the kombucha growth today. It’s like opening a slimy present.

It’s at about 1/4″ inch thickness now. I want to get it to about 1/2″ before I hose off and dry it.

The insides of the tubs are covered in condensation. I guess I should drill more holes or cover them with cloth instead to let them breathe.

The new SCOBY is growing around the original, circular one. I’m not sure I like or dislike this yet and I’m not sure how to avoid it. Add more tea to the brew??

We’ve had a few hot stretches of 90°+ days so far this summer but last week was rainy and cool and probably slowed down the brew. I’ll dump in more sweet tea and stick them outside to bake in the next heat wave.
