If you’re in Ottawa and you’d like a chunk of my SCOBY, leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you. I could also try mailing a chunk in a zip-lock baggie if anyone is interested in giving that a try!
I figured out that when I was brewing in 1 L Mason jars, the mouth wasn’t big enough and was not giving my babies enough air circulation. Either that or it wasn’t the proper ratio of surface area to volume.
I started brewing 2 L in a 4 L glass jar with a wide surface, and within 3 or 4 batches, she has recovered completely. So, we’re back in business!
