It's been three weeks, and I'm getting antsy. There hasn't been much change, it's kind of cold in my kitchen, and the SCOBY is growing slowly. So I'm still buying 'buch, just not every day. It was cheaper to smoke, which I stopped doing July 13th.
This is what I'm addicted to. I miss it when I don't have it, I feel sluggish and off. But at that price, even with my discount, I'm down to only two a week. I have other probiotics that I take to keep my system healthy, and I add acidophilus to my smoothies, but it's just not the same. I treated myself to one today - poured it into my big thermal cup with ice and sipped on it all day long while making the challah. Ahhhh, what a treat. I will give my kombucha one more week, then I must bottle it and get another batch started. I'll be making ginger beer, because I adore the flavor and it's sooooo good for the tummy. I might just get a heating pad to put the next batch on so I don't have to wait forever.
