Does anyone have a scoby they could trade for some beer or karma, or both?

Yes, you can build one, but it's like harvesting yeast from a bottle, you need a commercial kombucha to start.  It's better if you start with the scoby then you don't have to "step it up".

I'm currently growing my scoby. If no one else has one I'll hopefully have mine soon. I'll share
