A warm “Hello” to all fermentation enthusiasts:-)
We are repeatedly asked by phone, email, but also through our numerous blog posts, how you can actually tell whether the new kombucha batch was just a new, vital baby kombucha, or whether mold has actually crept in with it. Especially those of you who are making kombucha yourself for the first time are sometimes very unsettled. But rightly so, because anyone who has not dealt with the topic of fermentation and in particular kombucha fermentation before, will be confronted with images during this extraordinary process that are difficult to classify. But first of all, real mold is really only in the greatest exceptional case.
