Currently I use beer bottles and have a capper but some days hat is inconvenient.

A friend uses extra SCOBY and makes a sort of jerky out of it. I've tried but I can get the flavoring right to enjoy it. Hers was good.

I just bottled some for a 2F last night - put some frozen mango (for smoothies, LOL) in my glass carafe and poured it half full of booch (I need to make more tea tonight). I'll give it a few days then taste, can't wait!

Tell me more about this wild cherry juice from Big Lots?

To be honest, I'm not real impressed by it; it tastes like fruit punch to me. It -is- 100% juice, but it's a blend, and.. yeah. Doesn't taste at all like I thought it would. Meh.

Did they have anymore flavors? Was it in the foods section or somewhere odd (this *is* Big Lots)?

I have always been GBS+. I think I have tried everything but a good ferment. Perhaps I should give it a whirl and then I could answer the question.

Food section, with all the other juices. Old Orchard was the brand.

well being that I don't even own a scoby, I am considerably behind =). I am still canning (at last count I canned over 170 quarts this summer). I am now on the last big push. Once done, I shall look into obtaining one.

If you start with the corner and then slowly peel it off under running water it comes right off!

It doesn't seem to matter. I run a trickle of warm water and peel slowly. I don't even have to scrub the bottles afterwards-all the adhesive comes off.
