That's why. Later in the session, Anderson was asked yet again about whether she might one day come back as Scully. It just is. Another reporter returned to the subject still one more time, suggesting Anderson might play Scully 10 years from now. This is it for me. So how do you like that?
As those in the room laughed, Duchovny jokingly continued. Good question. The daughter also has a round dime-sized brown spot that attached to this second scoby. Will it be ok to use this for a new batch of kombucha? How will i know if i have ethanol in my finished kombucha tea? I read that sometimes the alcohol turns into ethanol which can kill? When i read this, now hubby and i are kinda staring at our kombucha not wanting to even taste for sourness.
I wonder who would be the first to taste after 48 hours of fermenting it with fruit. There does not appear to be open mold spots on the top. Do you think this is okay? I am so anxious to get this going that I hate to have to start over again. BTW, I keep mine in the cabinet over the fridge…exhaust from the fridge keeps it steadily warm year round. I have been continuous brewing for about 1 year now and would like to take a break. If they reject your gracious offer, give it a proper burial and start over by growing a new SCOBY when you are done with your break!
If others have tried this and failed, it could be because many store-bought juices contain preservatives which are specifically in there to prevent microbial growth not what you want! Kombucha, by definition, is fermented tea.
Where to Find a Kombucha SCOBY
Think of it like this. I also have an apple cider vinegar mother and wondered how to used it to make vinegar. I began the vinegar using apples, honey and water per Little House on the Prairie cookbook. But I did not know what what actually growing on top of one of the batches until I can to this sight. I wanted to grow a scooby,but the unflavore at the health store are cold would that be okay to use?
I made my tea with Ginger green tea. It was mixed in the tea bags. I added the sugar to the ginger green tea and let it ferment for about 10 days. When I poured it out it was really bubbly and foamy. Smells and looks more like beer than the Kombucha it normally makes. What happened and is it ok to drink? Rather, if you want it flavored, a two-stage fermentation process is necessary. How long can you keep the mother and starter in the refrigerator in a glass jar? Would it still be good after a few months? That being said, what is the best way to store them?
How long usually? And, what is the best cloth to cover with? Again, cheesecloth is conflicting, thx! I used a double fermentation method using green tea and Cran-cherry fruit juice. This is my second batch I was given scobies It smells sour, taste is ok and it is not real fizzy. My first batch with a different scoby was with a Black Assam tea and Apple-grape. It was just awesome! Did I do something wrong? I go about 7 days then bottle it. I use a seedling heater to keep them warm. Cranberry and cherry are very sour — nearly no sugar there.
Sugar feeds yeast; yeast makes bubbles. You could add a bit of sugar to that particular juice before adding it to the kombucha, or you could blend it with a sweeter juice. Make sure the bottles are closed up tightly. A stainless steel kettle is fine for brewing your tea. The comments above from Kristen M on June 20, , sum up the concerns nicely. Promotional gifts have much use a brand and vehicles benefits they bring could be huge. This comes with a great advertising chance no additional cost. The more you provide to your clients, greater you are likely to acquire back.
I hate tea, I wish I could stomach it. I try every year to see if my tast buds have changed. It makes me gag. Use the very best quality organic white, green, or black tea you can get your hands on, and keep the steeping time short. A couple of minutes is usually perfect. Make sure you heat the water to the correct temperature before making tea with it — black takes hotter water than green, and green takes hotter water than white.
That should reduce the amount of tannins in the tea and produce a pleasant flavour. Honestly, kombucha hardly tastes like tea at all. Kind of like a really light beer or vinegar. The best way to decide if you like it or not is to buy a bottle and try some. The ones with ginger tend to be my favorites. Hi, I have a pretty thick scoby and it has a top of fairly stiff white surface on top. Is this ok, or should I renew the scoby?
So is the bacteria killed in the tea as well as mother and baby? Is it worth drinking at all? Hi, I have a question. Its been about 5 days, its half gone and now I see what looks like a scoby on the surface of it. What can I do with this? Will the fruit eventually go bad, can I salvage this second scoby somehow?
I was told that Kombucha has to be in a cool setting 78 or under. We live in a mobile home, and it gets above 78 in the late afternoon until the sun goes down past the trees. Will my kombucha go bad? My kombucha takes vinegar-y. I am on my third batch of brewing kombucha and I am loving it! I want to expand to a larger vessel. I have read conflicting opinions on using a vessel with a spout and how it can harbor mold and bad bacteria. What do you think? The spout on the container makes for a great continuous brewing system.
Use best judgement on taking the spout off and running water through it to clean it out, since the bacteria will definitely grow in there… but definitely not bad bacteria. The pH of the kombucha will stop bad bacteria from growing inside of it since the liquid will be in constant contact. I have a continuous brewing system with 1 gallon of tea in there now. How do I increase it? Do I just add another scoby and another gallon of tea? Also, should I remove a baby scoby each week? I am new to this and just realized I had 5 scobys in there!! My tea was starting to have a very strong vinegar taste.
I have removed all of them except the mama now and hope that helps. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If you keep every scoby in there, it will basically end up being a scoby hotel. That will make it so sour and vinegary it will be almost undrinkable. How do you store your Scobys if you are not ready to make another batch? My friend puts hers in the refrigerator and puts a lid on it. Thanks, Elma. I heard a lot about the benefits of kombucha but never tried. I noticed that the recommended PH for kombucha is very low, 2. The latter will slow the fermentation process. The thing is, kombucha is an aerobic fermentation, not like kefir which is anaerobic.
They use oxygen. The rest is correct though, room temperature with a cloth lid to keep the bugs and environmental doohickeys out. I was cooking brown rice last night under low heat. About 30 minutes later I went to feel my vessel and realized what I had done. How do I know if I killed it?
Thanks, Sarah. I have no idea why and i tried to research it and found nothing. There is no mold and it produces Kombucha but no daughter scoby. Yesterday when I was stirring the sugar into my tea with the scoby in there I forgot to use my wooden spoon and instead used my rubber one with a metal handle and I know it got in contact with the liquid where the scoby was! If so … what do I do???? Please help! Could you please tell me if I could brew Kombucha with fruit tea, like raspberry tea?
It is without caffeine and has licorice root in it. Or do I have to use black or green tea? If you steep the tea in freshly boiled tea for seconds it should remove the majority of the caffeine. It will still have some in it, but not nearly as much. My first batch worked great. This second batch, not so great.
After a week I went to check on it. There was a baby but it was quite small. At first I thought maybe it was because I used a large jar with a smaller mouth as opposed to a large bowl.
Then, when I transferred my kombucha to mason jars I realized it was already a little carbonated. I think what happened was that the towel I put over top the second batch was thicker and did not breath nearly as much as the first batch. Anyway, that leads me to several questions. As far as we know I am not currently pregnant but there is always the chance I could become pregnant.
I had a 2 gallon jar that I put in the frig cause I was gone for wks. My scoby is thick, like 3 inches and there is not much kombucha left is it ok to go ahead and add more sweet tea like I did before or do I need to decrease the size of the scoby first…? Thanks Pat. I am buying Kombucha at a local juice place on tap in a large bottle and storing it in the fridge. Can I reheat it on cold days and drink it hot? I mean will that change it?
Also how long willit last in the fridge? The heat will destroy the bacteria that you have tried to reproduce. Maybe someone can help, I am using the double fermentation approach, and have removed my Scoby from my first successful batch of kombucha. I put berries and lemon in my strained tea Scoby free and that batch is growing another Scoby altogether!
Should I be concerned? I just made my first batch. I like the flavor now. Do I take the scoby out of container and put in refrig. While I drink it? A week? Thanks Mary. Looks happy and healthy. The tea beneath is quite tart, or sour even. Did I not provide enough sugar at the beginning or should I wait even more time?
I know I am to use about a cup to create the next batch but what can I do to minimize the sourness? I am interested in making my own kombucha but was wondering about temperature. Will this affect the kombucha? Hi, I am interested in making a continuous brew kombucha, but had a question. I was wondering because I recently am in the process of making kombacha if I totally screwed it up?
I added raw cultured organic butter not really knowing the differences of probiotics yet…. I also used organic brown sugar. Umm I know this probably sounds ridiculous but can my baby kombacha be saved or should I just start over to be safe? Hi there! Thank you for sharing. They claimed that leaving too much room can provide more space for dangerous gas to build up, increasing the chance that your bottle will explode.
They also claimed that the second ferment thrives in an anaerobic environment created by filling the bottles to the top. Have you heard anything like this? We tried and failed to brew Kombucha even with a scoby from Cultures for Health. We live on a well so chlorination was not the issue. Turns out our water was two pure after going through the filters and was killing the scoby.
I now add a few milliliters of Andersons Mineral drops to every batch and now it grows great. I also add it to my regular drinking water because if it does that to the scoby…. Just started with kombucha. Going to try a couple of commercially mixed to see what I like. Looking forward to really getting this going. Do you think this will work out OK? Today I tried brewing my first batch of kombucha in a growler. It sat in the pot for around 3 hours before I did my research and discovered how harmful aluminum is.
My question is: Should I throw out the scoby? Is there some way to salvage the scoby or is it dangerous to use now? I switched to a Rose Tea when brewing the sweet tea because I too have problems drinking caffeine. I found no problems doing the switch, I think any tea is fine to use. I bought a 2 gallon jar from Amazon and make mine in that, but my scoby is almost 2 inches thick. Is that going to be a problem at all? I have been making kombucha for 1 year and my recipe for brewing the tea is…..
I bring the water to the boiling point then take it of the stove and add my sugar and teabags, take the bags out after 15 min. I taste the brew with a straw to test the flavor to my liking. Would this be enough to reduce the sugar? Thanks for this great information! I have been brewing and using since and LOVE it. Unfortunately, within the last few weeks I have neglected it and there is a very potent smell and what is left in there is undrinkable. Unfortunately I have never cleaned or done anything more than brew fresh batches of tea to refill.
I am sorry if my ignorance insults anyone! Thanks for the help! More importantly, although I covered my Kombucha, two fruit flies got into the jar. Should I throw out the whole batch?

I would like to take a break from Kombucha tea and make some kefir grains probiotic water. I am not sure I am going to like the water kefir grains. Thanks Karen. I recently started making my own Kombucha and we just love it! My question is I do a second fermentation into long neck glass bottles and leave about inches space at the top. When it is time to enjoy the brew…I loose a lot of the brew from so much fizz. I am doing or not doing something right?!!! Can herbal teas be used to make Kombucha? Or anything else other than green or black tea?
Its not my first time to visit this site, i am browsing this site dailly and take nice data from here everyday. Can you help us by explaining how to start preparing it, because we have never used. We would appreciate it. Hi, I used to brew kombucha years ago and I know how to, etc. I recently noticed — in a bottle of home-brew beer that was put aside because the lid was not secured and I presumed it would be on its way to becoming vinegar — that a few layers of what appear to be a kombucha scoby had formed.
Just seeing this site has made me want to buy a fresh one too, and start a bonafide batch. I have started growing kombucha and i have a question i have searched high and low for the answer and found nothing. If it has indeed turned upside down will this be a problem?
Thanks in advance! It should be fine. Thanks for this. Next day add cream. Blend thoroughly and leave in refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving. Hocken staff were excited by the final array presented at morning tea time and eagerly tucked in. It took so long the peas went cold. My own personal favourite was the mushroom dip: I was wary of the overnight ginger ale soaking of the mushroom soup mix but it was not noticeable in the eventual tasty product. But I think the Minty spread has star potential if the tinned peas were exchanged with fresher tasting frozen peas and some mashed feta was added for a delicious update.

Four instructors in uniform stand in front of a group of fifteen women. Behind the instructors, written in chalk on the blackboard, are five recipes. One of the great thing about glass plates is the level of detail that can often be found in them — you can really zoom in! Richard, our reprographics wizard, scanned the plate and was able to pull up the recipes with some clarity.
The titles were clearly visible: vanilla ice cream, coffee mousse, orange water ice, pineapple mousse, and peach parfait. Most of the text for the last two recipes is readable, partially obscured by an instructor staring down the camera. Choosing the parfait, I thought I might have to fill in the missing parts of the recipe, but after a fair bit of hunting I fortunately found a beautifully handwritten copy in the first-year practical workbook of Rae Vernon Rae was a Home Science student from , and later joined the staff herself.
On the same page is a coffee mousse recipe that also appears on the blackboard:. Peach Parfait. Combine peaches and orange juice. Beat in the white mixture. Stir briskly until cool and then fold in whipped cream and almond ess. Pour into a mould cover with waxed paper and press on the lid. Pack in two parts of ice and 1 of salt for 4 hrs. My prior knowledge of frozen parfaits was somewhere between non-existent and negligible, but this is apparently a fairly conventional recipe, except it only uses the egg whites and not the yolks.
The most unusual ingredient is the almond essence, and I was not entirely convinced it would go with peaches, but looked forward to finding out. The cooking process was fairly straightforward. I did use tinned peaches, and so used less sugar as directed. To add to the fun I found a vintage though not s mould. Unwilling to experiment with packing in ice apologies to those wanting closer authenticity , I covered the finished mixture tightly in its mould and put it in the freezer overnight.
Turning the parfait out of its mould was a bit tricky, but dipping it in a bath of warm water did the trick. I tarted it up with some more peaches and a sprig of mint and hoped it would pass muster. Reaction in the Hocken staff room was favourable, a common theme being pleasant surprise about the peach and almond flavour combination.
Some comments:. Overall, it turned out better than I expected, and I would make it again. It was fun to bring to life the obscure detail of an image in the collections.

Primary sources can convey a sense of time, place, and personality like nothing else. There is a great satisfaction that comes from connecting the dots between sources and watching a narrative rise up from your research. Recently, some staff members at the Hocken were invited to take part in a research project.
The aim? To hone our research skills and to learn about topics and sources that were unfamiliar to us.

In the s and s, when suburban growth in Dunedin was expanding rapidly, surveying and civil engineering firms flourished. Reid was a farmer and storekeeper who had also worked as a draughtsman under John Turnbull Thomson in the Survey Department in Dunedin. Duncan had trained as an engineer, and worked for another Dunedin firm before going into partnership with his brother and Reid. Duncan was particularly well-known for his work on the Roslyn and Mornington cable tramways.
Their collection ARC is a mixture of business records — contracts, diaries, plans, and correspondence — some of which were purchased at auction, and some of which were donated. Knowing nothing about the firm, I requested the first diary on the list: Diary of John Cunningham.
Cunningham was a Dunedin-born surveyor who worked for Reid and Duncans in the early s. These men were often civil engineers and land and estate agents as well as surveyors. Cunningham made many references to working on the Roslyn tram project, which reflects the importance of the project to the firm, and particularly to the Duncans. Kettle settled there in and built a home on the land after several years of farming in South Otago. He died of typhoid in , and parts of his estate were leased and sold off in the s.

Slowly, a narrative was beginning to form: of urban surveyors working six days a week to meet the needs of an expanding city and its wealthiest citizens, of an area of town opening up to new construction, of the changing shape of Dunedin, of the influence of religious interest groups in deciding the layout of the town. Would we have any of the Reid and Duncans material to which they contributed? The Hocken Maps collection also held some treasures connected to the subdivision and the surveyors.

Access to this collection requires the permission of the Fletcher Trust Archives, Wellington. Company of New Zealand Limited: Records c. One of the more poignant collections held in the Hocken archives is a small number of papers relating to the Kaitangata coal mine disaster Misc-MS On 21 February a miner entered some old workings with a naked light and the firedamp methane within exploded.
The collection includes some newspaper clippings and photographs, but perhaps most interesting are the mourning cards for nine of the people who died in the disaster. These small cards around x 75mm each bear the name and age of the person, along with a memorial verse; the verses vary slightly.
Five of the cards are for members of the Beardsmore family: James Beardsmore senior, his sons Edward and James, his son-in-law Caleb, and his brother Joseph. Two other men in the family were also miners, but off work at the time of the accident. Four of the family were left widows with young children through the mine explosion.
James Spiers, who died in the mine disaster left , his widow Elspeth Spiers right , and mourning cards for their son James. The Clutha Leader reported that, overall, the disaster left 25 widows and fatherless children. Another of the men for whom we have a memorial card, and also a photograph, is James Spiers, who was a father of eight.
His youngest was just a baby who died himself soon before his second birthday; the collection also includes memorial cards for that child. The community raised funds to support the families bereaved by the disaster, but it was not easy for a widow to support a family in an era before government social support payments.
