Like I mentioned in the last post we are reviving our mother, scoby that is and she’s ready to roll. Thing is with these live cultures – they are live and if you neglect them well, then, their toast. So that’s what happened with my previous batch. I had about 25 “mothers” was fermenting up a storm and then bam! Got a whole lot of stuff thrown on the plate and before I knew it was RIP for those jiggly wiggly mushrooms.
Last time I was a recipient of a scoby from a local fermenter. This time around I decided to grow my own. Took three weeks but here she is.
Not much to look at but
Yesterday brewed up a batch of tea with what tea bags I had on hand – white tea that was given to us free in one of our swag bags from one of the film festivals we attended. This will be the first time using white since normally brew black or green. So this fermenting batch should be interesting.
Not only am I curious how this brew will turn out but have been wrangled into a friendly fermentation battle of who’s brew is better.
The showdown supposedly will take place at our upcoming event on Sunday August 23. May the be best brew win!
