Q: My first batch has been Brewing for ten days & it tasted good to me. I started filling my bottles when I realized I had not tested the pH. Will this be harmful to drink?

A: It shouldn't be harmful to drink - if your kombucha looks, smells and tastes good, then it is good. Our tongues are our most useful instrument when brewing kombucha. pH strips are provided as a teaching tool and a "just in case" measure for if folks feel unsure about their booch.
