SCOBY – the next generation

So my last kombucha attempt ended in disaster when I discovered fruit fly larva all over the culture.  I was bummed… had fermented nicely and was ready to be enjoyed.  Except for the wriggling little bodies all over the SCOBY.

So this time I did not take the stupid advice of the people I got the instructions from.  They said to use a cheese cloth, which is what I did but the weave is too loose, which allowed the fruit fly to crawl in.  This time I used a paper towel with a rubber band to seal it.  Breathable but should keep the little critters out.

Hopefully this next batch will turn out well!
