So today I decided it was time to move onto the next step in this process. I wasn’t 100% sure the scoby was ready, but I figured it would be better to transfer jars and give it more tea to feed off of than risk it sitting too long.
It still needs to grow for another 7-14 days, so I think I should be good.
Remember, this is my first time doing this.
Okay, so for stage 2, start by boiling 4 cups of water in a pan.
Add in 2 more tea bags. This time, I used black tea.
Stir in 1/3 cup of sugar.
Remove from the heat, and allow to come to room temperature covered.
While it’s cooling, transfer the liquid the scoby is in into a one gallon glass jar.

Add in the cooled tea when it’s ready.
Cover the jar with 2 more paper towels, a rubber band (or headband… 🙂 ) and place the jar back to where it was before.
Stage 2 complete 🙂
