I forgot to include my new Kombucha SCOBY in the pictures yesterday. When I realised this yesterday afternoon, I went to get a picture of it & noticed it's ALREADY GROWING!!! It hadn't even been in the tea 48 hours (I took the pics around 3 yesterday & I just batched it up late Wednesday night).
The opaque part is the part Millie gave me, the cloudy part is where it's already a "film" across the whole top of the liquid. The boys were in bed when I moved the baby from the starter tea jar to the brew jar, but they can't wait til next time so they can touch the SCOBY. I believe when I told them about it being squishy & slimy but firm in the middle, the word was "COOL!!!" LOL
