Your daughter did a great job explaining the process. It looks like WZZM13 has decided they really like having y'all on the show :)

What a great way to show others some of what y'all have learned.

Keep up the great work

I have been following your blog for some time. Mostly gleaning quietly in the background.

You both did great on TV. What a blessing to be able to help teach others.

I currently have about 8 gallon jars on my refrigerator, waiting to be enjoyed. Although I have found that I'm hit and miss on the bubbly part. But Kombucha is good when it's bubbly :-)

Abby did a very nice presentation! She didn't seem nervous at all. Very impressed! We have been making our own Kombucha for a few years, and I noticed that she used a metal bowl and tongs. Maybe she did this just for the show, but hopefully people will read instructions before using metal. Metal is considered toxic to Kombucha and you should never let metal touch the Kombucha "mother" or Kombucha tea.

Nancy, thank you for the tips! You can use stainless steel to make your kombucha tea. The bowl, as well as the tongs, were stainless. http://www.laurelfarms.com/ipix/make_kombucha_tea.htm

Laurel farms has some wonderful tips!

Thank you everyone for your kind sentiments!

Cinnamon, we have found the way to make it bubbly! After the tea is finished, do a 2nd fermentation in a glass bottle leaving head space and close tightly for about another week. you will be surprised at the difference!
