My first quart-sized batch of kombucha didn't look like this at all. It looked pretty normal. I'm not sure if I just need to wait, or if this is mold
and I need to throw out the juice and start over, or what.
Judging by these pictures, can you tell if this batch is a variation of normal, or a flop?

I've made some delicious red currant syrup (currants+sugar), but I left it too long in the fridge and it fermented. What can I do with it? Vinegar? Wine?

Someone gave me a bottle of homemade red wine. It was filled right to the top of a screw-top bottle. It's a little fizzy, and light in colour (not as light as a rosé- just not as deeply coloured as most red wines I'm used to). I had a little sip and it doesn't taste too bad. Why is it fizzy?
More importantly, should I drink it?

What can I do this old apple cider? I found a 30 year old jug in my inlaw's basement. It's funky and drinkable! What can I do to kick it up a notch? [more inside]

I know that there are no carbs in hard liquor (gin, vodka, etc), but why? I've been told that the carbs are burnt off in the distilling process, but I'd like to know exactly how that occurs. Weblinks are helpful.
