What do I do with my Scobys when I want a break from making kombucha?
Well, the first question to ask yourself is how long a break do you want? Are you going on holiday for a couple of weeks and need to know that your scoby will still be alive when you come back? Or are you looking for a longer break? Maybe you like kombucha as a summer drink, but just don’t drink cold drinks during winter, so you want to keep your scoby safe through winter until springtime.
For short breaks, you can just put all your scobys together into a big jar of sweet tea on the bench – just like brewing kombucha, but for longer.
This is called a scoby hotel. It is a good solution for short or medium term storage (up to about six months).
