This is a time lapse production filmed by Tona Williams of Big Bite Productions. It is the formation of a Kombucha SCOBY over a period of 7 days. It was done at the NessAlla Kombucha Kitchen in Madison, Wisconsin. Music by Vanessa Tortolano featuring Julia McConahay on Violin. A SCOBY is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. It metabolizes the sugar and caffeine in the Kombucha mixture creating a protective barrier for the fermentation of the tea.
