Every time I’ve checked on the kombucha since starting this 2nd batch last Friday, the temperature of the jar has been 66-68 degrees. This does not bode well for a successful and happy fermentation.
I’ve ordered some heating mats and am disgruntled that I will have to wait to start any more batches until they arrive. I’ve got two more jars ready to go, but the near-term forecast for Ventura is 60s to low 70s. No since risking 3 SCOBYs.
