I buy it at the store and drink it. Pretty damn good, makes you feel good, whether that's psychosomatic or not.

I would think you would have to have mad liquid culture skills before trying something like that.

cuss i would be scared shittless to drink something from it otherwise

I've had a few bottles of the drink, and I very much enjoy it. Any digestive issues I have due to dairy products or whatever else I've ate that wasn't organic fruit and nuts dissolved away. Basically, I had really positive results from the drink, and I looked into growing the cultures.

However, I didn't find a site that I felt trusted to buy a culture from. I am afraid of being scammed, so maybe if you got the cultures offline, you could send me the link?

I think I will PM you this message, too, simply because I'd really love to grow some kombucha.

  You really don't need to buy a culture. Very few people know this but, if you make a strong tea using 1 tea bag to one measuring cup of water, add 3 Tablespoons of sugar cover well with a cloth and place in the cupboard for about 3 weeks you'll get a baby started  without using a piece of starter culture. Using a culture is quicker.. but this does work.

Why would people sell it for good money if you could just make it in your cupboard from tea and sugar?

Go here, and you should be able to find a free starter culture near you.  I have never had to pay for one, and I have made gallons upon gallons of the stuff.  The only cost is the tea and sugar. 

As far as making your own culture, I definitely wouldnt trust anything that grew without a starter culture.  IMO, that is like putting together a substrate for shrooms without spores, and eating the resulting growth expecting it to be psychedelic. 

There are many compounds that create that vinegary smell (mother of vinegar for one) so I wouldnt take that as any indication that you have kombucha.  The exact fungus you want is called Medusomyces Gisevii Lindau fungus.  That is the kombucha strain, anything else is just a random mix of yeast and bacteria, and may do more harm than good.

I have Scobys for free every couple of weeks, as my batches finish. I just sent two out to fellow shroomerites.
