It's Cinco de mayo and Velma is celebrating by continuing to grow. :-) She's gone from a tiny clear jellyfish that was only about 2 inches across to a full fledged scoby about 6 inches across. Getting thicker every day. Right now parts are still only 1/8 of an inch thick or so, but some areas are over 1/4 inch thick. As she grows she get a much creamier color with the tea stains becoming less. I'm going to let this tea go to vinegar too and give her one more jar before I try making kombucha tea. I know I probably could already, but I do need some more kombucha vinegar. I'm out and it's what I use for conditioner on my hair.
