Some say you need to have apple cider vinegar and others say no, some say put the lid on tight some say don't. Some say it last for along time in the jar/bucket others say it only last a couple of days. What say ye?
PS thanks for the help.
That's about it...soak the feed for a few days, it will ferment. You don't need ACV, you don't need a tight lid....you actually really don't WANT a tight lid unless you like exploding feed stuff, it lasts as long as the scoby has fresh feed and that depends on the temperature, the nature of the feed, etc. You don't have to feed it out in a couple of days, it can last much longer than that.
