I’m starting one new batch today, using the same SCOBY team, again (not separating the Mother and Daughter).
There will be two differences in this batch:
1. Using reverse osmosis water, instead of spring water.
2. Will be utilizing a heating mat to try and stabilize the temperature of this batch.
Other than that, things are being done exactly the same way as before, with a heaping dose of love thrown in, for good measure.
UPDATE: I have plans this evening, so I didn’t want to wait for the sugar/tea to cool to room temperature. I iced the water as I added it to the jar. The tea was around 72 degrees, when I added the SCOBY and kombucha starter.
