hey everyone!
this is my very first SCOBY. the underside of it, however, has this scummy-looking brown spot (that was actually the first part of the SCOBY to form, a while ago) and i wanted to make sure it was normal. as you can see i tried breaking off that layer of the SCOBY, but without much luck.

I assume that it's a kombucha SCOBY.... that being the case... brown spots like that are not uncommon...

It looks consistent with what I get. Maybe even a bit lighter than I get.

That is a very healthy looking kombucha mother. :) I sometimes get a whole scummy layer of the brown stuff. There is no problem with it.

i do believe the brown spots are dead yeast cells shed by the scoby as it grows.
