  16. Jennifer Camilleri says:

    bought two bottles they looked fine but they were completely sour and had some weird brown stuff floating at the top, didnt look good so i poured it down the drain.

    • kombucha says:

      That’s basically how it’s supposed to look and taste when producing kombucha. It’s a bacteria that eats the sugar away and creates a vinegar-like flavor. The brown stuff is the yeast that is leftover from the fermentation process. Nothing harmful, albeit weird-looking.

    • Gail says:

      That’s not the issue at this time

  17. ginger says:
