Does the jar in this kit come with a lid that seals?
No. It comes with a piece of thin cloth and a rubber band to cover the kombucha while allowing air to pass through.There is actually no use for the lid when making Kombucha.
How do I store my scoby until I am ready to brew?
Your SCOBY should be fine for about a month after you receive it. Simply keep the SCOBY in the plastic bag at room temperature until you are ready.
Does it come with instructions?
Yes, instructions should come with the kit.
My Scoby was in cold weather/freezing weather. Will it be OK?
Yes. It should be fine. However, if you have any issues, we will send you a replacement SCOBY. Just message us with your address, and we will send you one immediately.
How do I store my SCOBY? Can I store it in the refrigerator?
It is best to store the Kombucha SCOBY in an active brew. You can store the kombucha in the brew for up to 2 weeks. The next best option is to store it at room temperature. We do not recommend storing it in the refrigerator.
I was wondering where on the bottle to put the temperature gauge.
In terms of the temperature gauge, you want to place it on the gallon jar (lower half) where the tea will be.
I also wonder if I put enough water in. The instructions say 6 inches from the top so is that about half full?
For the tea level, it should be about 6" from top of the jar. When you add SCOBY, the liquid will rise a bit so it so that there is about 4" space.
