  • Kumbucha Culture Question???

    An excerpt from the site, happyherbalist.com:

    Note: cigarette smoke, paint fumes, off-gasses, strong sunlight will kill kombucha.

    Use only distilled vinegars (or alcohol) for cleaning or to aid starting. Using raw vinegar may convert your kombucha to mother of vinegar. (MOV) Whenever you use any vinegar be sure that it is pasteurized or boiled. The common White Distilled vinegar is OK

    Mother of Vinegar (from a red wine) Very similar to kombucha. However kombucha is a decidedly different species of bacteria and yeasts which makes kombucha unique.

    Although adding herbs and other ingredients is a common practice care should be taken that something else is not created. see Kombucha Gallery for more pictures.

  • Kumbucha Culture Question???

    You need to do some research...

    If you put it in Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, you have now converted the mother to ACV mother. You now have Vinegar. You need a new mother. It will no longer contain the same beneficial acids and bacteria as Kombucha. www.happyherbalist.com has a free online book of EVERYTHING you'd ever want to know about growing Kombucha. I would recommend reading it before you end up growing something you'll regret.

  • Quit Smoking before OR after going raw?

    I agree with the others, I no longer desired to smoke after going raw. It took a few weeks. When I backslid to cooked food, I started smoking again. Raw food is the easiest way to quit smoking AND drinking alcohol.
