I have just started making my own Kombucha with great flavors. After the my tea has brewed and fermented with my wonderful SCOBY I flavor the strained tea with fruits and spices. The health benefits for my gut have been very good and many of my friends are requesting SCOBY babies to have the own brewing pots. I guess it's more of a West Coast of North America thing.

I have heard of using them as face masks, of all things! Either a whole SCOBY placed right on your face or pureed with a bit of kombucha to make a paste. My SCOBY is still too small to do either, but I will definitely be trying the paste when it is time!

On occasion, someone will ask for one and I gladly give it to them. Mostly, they end up in my compost pile. When my mother was staying with me last year, she asked me what is that "fetus like thing in the jar?" Sadly, it is now referred to as the fetus.
