Well, I have learned quite a lot in the past month or two about fermenting various things. I'm very excited, and I want to try everything. I know I am not the only one.
A lot of people charge for their starters (Scoby's, Kefir-crystals, etc.) and while I understand the need to make a living, I think some people are ridiculous with it. I want to make a sort of exchange here. Where we offer our "babies" for free (plus cost of shipping obviously), or shipping + bare costs for another batch to the giver. Depending on shipping weight, it would be an easy and inexpensive way to give and get love and health.
Anyway...In a week or so I will have a Scoby I would like to GIVE away, to a good home. I love these babies. They make me happy, and I hope they do you too! I want us all to be healthy!. The only thing I ask, is that after you have enough for brewing and back up, that you give one away for *free* as well. :)
The two I was sent were in doubled and taped ziploc bags, and a small priority mail box. I would be willing to do that, or put them in a glass jar (I have a million), and ship it. Whichever is safest and/or preferred. :) So.. anyone want one of my sweets when the time comes?
I can give either a mother, or her baby. I can not yet specify when it will be ready because my kitchen is pretty cool, but when the time comes...
Also: Anyone know where to find cheap gallon or two gallon jars (I have three 2 liter glass jars)? With shipping plus costs, they can be quite out there. I'd prefer to have something bigger than a 2 liter because I love Kombucha myself and know some people who need it badly. It'd mean less scobies and jars lying around...More to give!
Yes! I'd love to get one of your started babies! Give me the information I need to make contact with you.... I love your heart and I want to get started making my own Kombucha Tea!!
