Let me tell you..this was absolutely amazing. There is also so many ways to play around with it! As you can see, we even added the purple cauliflower that I found to ours!

HAPPY NATIONAL CELIAC AWARENESS DAY!!

http://www.celiaccentral.org/celiac-disease-in-the-news/us-senate-designates-september-thirteenth-as-national-celiac-awareness-day-8481/

 

http://www.celiaccentral.org/Celiac-Disease/Celiac-Symptoms/32/

Some of the most common symptoms of celiac disease include:

Bloating or Gas Diarrhea Constipation Fatigue
Itchy Skin Rash Tingling/Numbness Pale Mouth Sores Joint Pain
Delayed Growth Poor Weight Gain Thin Bones Infertility
Headaches Depression Irritability Discolored Teeth

Anemia, delayed growth, and weight loss are signs of malnutrition. Malnutrition is a serious problem for anyone, but particularly for children because they need adequate nutrition to develop properly. Failure to thrive during childhood development is a common indicator of celiac.

Some people with celiac disease may have no symptoms at all.

This is known as asymptomatic celiac disease. The undamaged part of their small intestine is able to absorb enough nutrients to prevent symptoms. However, people without symptoms are still at risk for the complications of celiac disease.

Setting up My Kombucha SCOBY Hotel aka Continuous Brew

I found this gorgeous water dispenser at the Amish Store

This is how my Kombucha SCOBY arrived.

I am using a mixture of black tea and green tea

If I drain a quart off, I replenish with 2 green tea bags, 1 black and 1/4 c sugar per quart of tea. Let cool to room temp. This is it’s “food”.

  

:) Delicious! Let brew for 24 to 48 hours and start tasting! I like it right out of the spigot but you can do a 2nd ferment in a grolsch-style bottle adding fruit or juice to flavor it and it adds more fizz.

The cover has to be a tight weave cotton with a rubberband around it. I use this fugly bandana ;)

This is a Baby SCOBY forming

 I’m not posting a recipe because it depends on the size of your vessel and how much you are brewing.  There are specifics in the links I posted.  Most importantly, cleanliness is a must!  AND NO SOAP!  I wash and rinse everything that comes in contact with the brew thoroughly and then rinse with white vinegar to be safe.
