How does the amount of sugar affect SCOBY growth? I hypothesised if I put in more sugar in the tea mixture then the SCOBY will grow larger, because SCOBY grows from fermentation. To conduct my experiment I made a tea mixture. I mixed in 3/8 cup of sugar in the first jar, 2/8 in the second, 1/8 in the third, and then left the last jar without sugar. After three weeks I weighed my SCOBYs. My results show that 3/8 cup of sugar will always weigh more than 1/8, but 2/8 cup is inconsistent, so my hypothesis was wrong.
