Days 7 & 8 - Grow Your Own Kombucha Mother (Exp. 1)

Day 8

Judging from the apple cider vinegar/kombucha smell (and from my typical 8ish day kombucha cycles), the tea should be ready to drink within the next couple of days. But because in this case I am looking to grow a new SCOBY and not aiming to drink the KT, even if the mushroom isn't completely formed soon, I will leave the culture in peace to grow. When KT becomes over-fermented and too acidic to drink, you can make kombucha vinegar out of it or use it as a strong starter tea! When my kombucha mushroom becomes completely formed, I will taste the tea, take its pH, and report! :)
