Death of a Scoby

Our kombucha scoby that we have loved and cared for so lovingly fell victim this week to a fruit fly infestation. [moment of silence please for our scoby] I noticed fruit flies in our kitchen a few days ago and couldn’t figure out where they were coming from. We seriously searched everywhere for the source since we keep a very clean kitchen… we figured a piece of fruit must have fallen under the island, under the sofa or somewhere we didn’t see. We couldn’t find the source no matter where we looked. Of course it was right there in front of us, but I didn’t notice the creepy crawlies in the kombucha until I went to add more tea this afternoon. I guess in the summer we will need an additional cover on the jar. I hate flies.

May you rest in peace our dear Scoby.
