Q: What to do with the scoby if you going away on holiday or taking a break from brewing?
A: Going away for less than two weeks – just leaf your kombucha jar with about 15% full and make a new brew on return and be ready to bottle in a few days.
Going away for two to four weeks – ensure you have about a third of your jar full with kombucha, leave it like that and make a new brew on return, be ready to bottle in few days.
Going away for four to 6 weeks – do the above or place your scoby in a scoby hotel. A scoby hotel is an extra jar that you keep full with scoby/s and kombucha. Leave your scoby hotel in a dark, cool place. You can leave your scoby hotel for 6 weeks.
