The first gallery below shows the growth of a scoby from day 3 to day 7 and then some pics of the 'Perfect' scoby' though such scobys are NOT the norm.

Unlike the perfect scobys above, these ones below that while looking somewhat weird or mutated, are actually still fine and fermented their brews just nicely.

Variations in scoby growth and appearance are just evidence of different bacteria or yeasts growing at different rates due to variations in temperature, ingredients and starter tea amounts.

And the worrisome mould on Kombucha scobys?
