Product Review (submitted on February 4, 2014):

I am usually very satisfied with your products unfortunately, not with this one. Prompt service, well packaged, and well written instructions. But after the 30 days of soaking my dry scoby, it was flat and dead. I do not think is a good idea to dehydrate a living thing and then try to bring it back to life. There is a 50-50% chance of working or not, and I guess it was my turn to lose.

CFH Response: There aren't a lot of visual signs that a rehydrating kombucha scoby is working. The scoby won't change much but it is busy consuming / converting the sugar and lowering the pH of the sugared tea. Testing with a pH indicator strip is a great way to see that everything is progressing normally. Any time you have a problem with a culture, please contact us. We are usually able to recommend simple adjustments to ensure you stay on track.
