Musical conveyer belt toaster oven?
Exactly.

Sounds like we need to get a label.   I have been thinking about
labels a long time.  Not just labelling the noisey kobumcha but giving
people a way of reporting back about their drink that's useful or fun.
 kind of like the tcho beta testers program and kind of like a sudo
pop QRcode system, or the funny labels on the drinks at Toy Boat cafe.


If you want to make a how-to video, there are lots of kombucha videos
on youtube to check out for ideas to get  and include..
