Check out the Kombucha User forum over at Yahoo(they have a user forum for everything). Sign up, and post that you're looking for a "baby", provide your address, someone will ship you one for free, you might have to pay postage.

I liked drinking the tea, just got tired of the procedure, buying 5lbs of sugar, storing the stuff, but it was fun watching that damn fungus grow. I had it in a 6gl crock, never took out the babies, damn thing just kept getting thicker and thicker. When I finally killed the blob, it was about 3-4 inches thick, at least two feet across.

Let me know if you can't find one, I'll help ya out.

Could you make a kombucha blob with some vinegar, alcohol and sugar? Or is it different from 'Mother of vinegar'?

Lurene;

I don't think so. You can try making / growing a baby from the Commercial Kombucha, I think the name is GT or something, and it should have some parts of live culture floating around in the bottle.

Re: J&J WOD and Meatfest May 30

Just a little bump; is the guest list locked in, Js?

And, more importantly, is there a list of events forthcoming?

Re: J&J WOD and Meatfest May 30

I'm at my mom's computer so I don't have the excel file, but we are in the mid 20's for participants (Frank, you are bring 5 others right). As far as events this is demo list, I'm finalizing things tomorrow at Jay.

60 meter kb toss for time (you must do 1 push up for each toss).

Sandbag carry shuttle runs

An FGB like set up. You will need to do traveling burpees to get from one station to another.

We will find where for wrestling.

For those staying till sunday, we will have the stuff to do DASY and Jay was talking about doing a a long trail run.
