Today is Kombucha day!
I first tried Kombucha a few weeks ago. I bought a few bottles at Costco because I heard how great the health benefits are. Well, we can all use health boosts.
It was pretty good. Not something that I would drink all of the time (probably shouldn’t drink too much a day anyway), but not as bad as it sounded 🙂
So after researching it more, I decided to learn how to make my own. I ordered the SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast – HA! I learned that today!) and got it this week. It’s alive!
So, today is the day!
Now, trying to follow the instructions. Why do I get the feeling that these are written for people that already know what they are doing?
Now, I’m kinda smart, and pretty good at following directions, but really? I think I had to read through these instructions 3 – 4 times to try to get my questions answered (at least I think I understand).
So, I am brewing my tea, and soon will be adding sugar, vinegar and my SCOBY. After that I will need to check the pH. Cover it up with a coffee filter and rubber band, then the waiting starts…
I sure hope that I keep this thing alive!
