Q & A

Q: My Scoby is not floating on top!

A: That’s absolutely normal. The SCOBY can float on top or bottom of the brewing jar, that’s all fine. After few days you should have a thin film on top of your brew, this is the new baby SCOBY.

 

Q: How long does the scoby last in the parcel and does the hot or cold weather effects it?

A: The scoby lasts easily for 4 weeks. They are very robust for a short period of time and can easily withstand the transport.

 

Q: What do I do with the ph test strips?

A: It can help you track the progress of your Kombucha brew. It is optional, but it can help you to distinguish when your own Kombucha starter is acidic enough (2.5-3ph is good) to start the next batch. If your starter/Kombucha is higher than 3ph use more of it then the recommended 10% of your total brew. Do not dip the strips into Kombucha that you intend to drink, few drops on the strip are enough.

 

Q: How long does it take till my parcel arrives?

A: All the scobys are freshly packed and send out twice a week. The standard free shipping takes usually 5-10 business days depending on where you live. Express usually takes about 2-5 business days.

 

Q:  When do I know if my kombucha is ready?

A: You know its ready when its to your liking. I usually start testing my Kombucha after 4-5 days.

 

Q:  What is the jar spigot made off?

A: The Jar spigot is made of food grade plastic (ABS) and the seal is made from food grade silicon. So nothing to worry about.
