Two weeks ago I saved the last 5-ish cups of my gallon of Eva’s Raw Kombucha and added it to some sweetened black tea. I made sure that the last bit of my “store bought” kombucha had some of those creepy slime strings in it because I have been told that those are the beginnings of a new mother SCOBY. Well I guess it was true! Today I can say with some certainty, that I have a baby SCOBY. I think the key was using store-bought kombucha that was not pasteurized (absolutely raw).
