I started my Kombucha and Viili cultures, it's time to check in and see how things are growing.
The Viili yoghurt is starting to thicken as you can see when I slightly tip the bowl. However, it's still too runny, so it will go back to sitting on my dresser - I have it in my bedroom because the kitchen is busy today and I don't want to get jostled and spilt. It's also easier to avoid temperature fluctuations in a smaller room.
The instructions said it will take between 24 to 48 hours (possibly longer) to set, so I'm going to check it every 2 hours or so from now on. But I suspect it has a long way left to go.
The colour of the tea has darkened, and the fruit flies are frustrated that they cannot get past the cloth protecting the tea.
Just a faint tea like smell, barely registers.
