Brooklyn Photo Safari

My friend Iink and i decided it would be a fun idea to walk around my neighborhood and have a photo safari. It turned out that is was mostly walking and not so much photoing, but we had fun taking some photos on my roof when we got back.

Hot-lanta

I made may way down to Atlanta for the US Social Forum and discovered that fighting for social justice, biscuits, and grits can all co-exist in beautiful harmony. Mmmmmm biscuits

Brewing Kombucha

For the past few months i have been experimenting with brewing Kombucha tea. After a rough frist try it has been very successful. Now i drink about 8oz. every morning before brekfast. I haven’t noticed as dramatic an effect as some others but i do feel in very good health and up up my dose again soon.

Anyone interested in brewing or recieving a baby culture to start their own batch just let me know. Also happy to answer any question from what i have discovered in the process so far

mold
my first attempt. You can see the mold growing…. had to through this whole batch out. I saved the culture and tried again.

Brewing a big batch of tea is the first step.

Covered with a hankercheif and brewing.

Here you can see the new Kombucha culture growing. The culture is called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) it is not technically a mushroom as many people refer to it.

We keep two jars going at the house.

Once the tea has gone through it’s fermenation period of 8-10 days (give or take) it is then bottle and left at room temperature to carbonate and then refrigerated.
