Glass bottles. The one time I got a canned kombucha, it was actually 6%ABV. I dumped it after a couple sips (I didn’t notice it was hard ‘bucha initially)...the funk is not improved by the flavor of alcohol. :D
It’s fermented and bubbly, so it’s not simply steep a bag.

I'll have to try,  the soft version.

And start calling it ‘bucha ;)
It’s weird, but it fits the bill of “bubbly” and not-soda when I have a beer jonesing.

That's when I usually go to fake beer, like Busch NA, or Odoulski, but I know that you think they taste gross.

Yeah, I’m particular about what I want in a beer flavor. I’d rather go for a totally different taste than fake beer. But it’s got the same ABV as fake beer. :D

I picked up a ginger and cayenne kombucha today (the supermarket had a huge display of some wild flavors this morning). Will report back on its zing! I would’ve tried it today, but between baseball, work, and running, then an early departure, I missed my “I want a drink” hour. :D

I should start a perpetual kombucha thread. I bet it’d draw in new posters! The CH has devolved to perpetual everything—nothing new to be discussed—this’ll draw in fresh specimens o humanity! :D

I also have a pink lady apple flavored ‘bucha and a pineapple one.

Board (CH...open pub just...is) more boring than ever. :(

NYT article about whether bucha is beneficial! (Read it pre race this am, too lazy to find it now.) Thing is, if you’re hoping for a superfood, ye’ll prolly be disappointed, but if AF alternative drinks are what ye seek (without going cutesy mocktails), it’s aight if you dig the flavor.

I wonder how many people were online at any give time in ye olde CH? 100, 200? You could log on at 11 pm at night and the board would be packed.

I wonder what the turning point was? I mean, by the time I started posting regularly in 2013 or ‘14, Facebook was already a fully established thing, so it’s not like “everyone just went to FB” is a legit claim. Was it Election ‘16-related Internet Outrage, or did the general mood begin to sour prior to that? Who knows. Maybe everyone just got old and boring. :D

Time for bid whist and bingo!

I don't think Yammering was ever as crowded as ye olde. The turning point here was probably the election, but from 2013 to 2016, it was already thinning down population-wise.

Ye olde was lightening in a bottle. Internet message boards had a novelty appeal at the turn of the century, it was bound to wear off, but ye olde died before that could happen.
