I recently had a thought, because all my kombucha pieces are so thin I can’t really prototype a form, it will just break immediately.
So I thought why not just cut a slice of my scoby. Then I found a way to dry it really quickly, about 20min!
- First I just squashed out as much fluids as I could with my hands.
- Next I laid the piece on a kitchen towel an pressed it until I got even more fluids out of the scoby.
- And then to finish it off I used a hairdryer and blew it completely dry.
Another thought I had was why not dry a peace with salt and see wat happens?
So that is exactly what I did, momentarily it already has extracted quit a lot of fluid, but it is still moist. So I am topping up dry salt every few hour.
Here is the result of the peace as a watch wrist band.
