What is a SCOBY?
The acronym stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria & Yeast. The SCOBY is responsible for fermentation and it gives kombucha it’s health benefits! Retain your Kombucha SCOBY after each batch - it'll help you brew future batches!
Your individual Kombucha SCOBY is grown from scratch in its own container, so the appearance will vary. It will average 3 - 4" in diameter, but it will grow to fit your fermenter. Your culture may be thin or thick, opaque or see-through, dark or light, smooth or textured. It may fold in transit, the pouch may also expand. Your Kombucha SCOBY might have a few layers that may split or stay connected, it may also have some floaters.
