  • Hi Andrea,
    it could be still good but I would have to try and smell it in order to say how it is. If it smells and tastes ok then is normally ok.
    Try to use the Kombucha from the top when its hot in order to minimize the amount of yeast.
    hope that helps.
    Cheers

  • Hi Andrea,
    Sorry for the late reply.
    the best temperature for a Kombucha brew is between 22 and 28°C, however, it does work also below and above this temperatures. The Scoby is very robust and can withstand temperatures up to 40°C for short periods of time.
    Is your Kombucha still good? I cant tell but if it tastes good, then it should be fine.
    In regards to much yeast, that can happen especially at high temperatures. I would recommend cleaning the jar after every brew until the temperature goes down a little.
    Hope that helps
    Cheers

  • Hi Carl, I grew my scoby from an artisan Kombucha sold only on farmers markets.
    You said something about temperature needing to be between 22 and 28 degrees.
    I had more than that, even 34 degrees on a 43 degree day. My Kombucha had bubbles after three days (without second fermentation). I left it for 6days before doing the second fermentation. Do you think it is any good after this heat?
    I retired the scoby and started new, but having problems now. Too much yeast in it somehow. Perhaps contamination also.
    Thanks
