    Thanks for that, Judy, I just bought one. Really good reviews! See, you're my life coach too.

    David, you might want to try it before you make some. You might be able to find it in your local grocery store in a speciality drink area. It will be refrigerated. There are different brands. I would recommend staying away from GT Dave's because it is too sweet. If there is a local brew, definitely go for that. They can taste really different, some have an almost ammonia-like taste. I like the really tart ones. Of course you must realize going into this that you will become addicted like the rest of us. Don't blame me.

    And I bought a new crock pot after all of the scrumptious details with yours

    I love the bite and fizz from my kombucha. I've never had it anywhere else.

    Been giving my new crockpot a workout! It is really easy to just use the same recipes I used in the oven. Just don't need as much liquid, and cook it for longer. I've learned to just put in lots of veg, celery, carrots, onions, tomatoes, a little broth and the meat. When it's done, take out the meat, skim off some fat, dump all the liquid and veg in a pan and reduce it down for ten minutes or so. Then put it in a blender. Makes an extremely tasty gravy, nice and thick.

    There really isn't anything like kombucha, is there? I never did like sweet drinks and I was so excited to have something to drink that isn't water and isn't sweet!

    I like the Dave's Kombucha....... but its the only one I've tried so far. but I'm thinking sweet is better than tart - I'm not a fan of tart.

    That sweet taste comes at a price - it has considerably more sugar and carbohydrate than I would like. And the large amount of sugar means that it has not fermented for very long, decreasing the benefits of fermentation. That's why I don't recommend it. The local brew has less than half the sugar of GT Dave's and is fermented for almost twice as long. But there are lots of brands.

    I am growing a SCOBY from the dregs of some purchased raw kombucha. Ten days in, and it is almost big enough to go flying on its own!

    I'll look around for some. These days I really only drink coffee, probably too much, and ice water. Occasionally I drink a beer or two but waaay less than before. Maybe once or twice a week.

    I have taken to drinking Iced coffee in the afternoons and would be open to trying something new. I just don't want to add calories, particularly carbs to the mix while actively reducing. I'll check it out.

    There are several health-food stores in the area, maybe I'll try there first.

    Thanks!

    I like Kombucha Wonder Drink Asian pear & Ginger flavor. Refreshing, spicy, not sweet.

    the label says 8 carbs - 4 sugars per 8 ounces - so, 1:1. My Fred Meyer (Krogers) carries one other brand. I'll try that next.
