So, I haven't been the greatest scoby owner and relegated the little thing to a cupboard for two years with no food. Last night I was cleaning and took out the jar. Some type of mold was growing on top of this poor thing, so I decided due to the neglect plus the foreign invader that I should put it out of its misery. I emptied the remaining liquid and then poured in a bunch of bleach. I came back a few hours later to see the scoby offgassing like crazy as though it had woken from its long slumber and was going to nom-nom-nom town on the poison bath I gave it. It is still offgassing today. Would anyone like to try and replicate this? I know Paul Stametz has patented the abilities of some fungi to digest petrochemicals, but bleach?!
