SCOBY Harvest

We decided to harvest and dry one of the big SCOBYs today.

Booch Leather

As we removed it from the tea, the SCOBY separated into two layers, which we washed and rinsed.

Washing the SCOBY

The top layer was thick and uneven and prone to tearing as we arranged it on a piece of cardboard to dry.

Top Piece

The bottom layer was thin and unblemished and surprisingly strong. It’s barely visible on the plywood.

Quality SCOBY

We mixed up some sugar water, and added it to both the now empty grow chamber, and to the undisturbed second batch. We’ll wait a week to harvest and cure the SCOBY growing therein.
