I am attempting to brew homemade ginger beer using this recipe
However, this is my second attempt at a plant/bug and it doesn't seem to be going well. Like the first time, the sediment in the plant just seems to settle in the bottom and I never really see the bubbles. It then starts to have little mould parties on the surface (little white fuzzy spots that develop black in the middle)
It doesn't smell bad but I can't imagine the mould is good. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Should I be feeding the plant from day two and not wait to see those bubbles?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
