A: It's not mold, its yeast! Yeast likes to settle on the bottom of kombucha bottles. Mold can only grow when exposed to oxygen on the outsides of food (i.e. bread, cheese) so that is where mold would grow on kombucha as well - on the top of your scoby during the first fermentation, not in your bottle during the second fermentation.
