Brewing Kombucha?

I would go to the ends of the city of Chicago to find a Kombucha mother so I could brew my own. Could anyone help me out? Direct me someplace?

      That's something I'll never try at home. I get mine premade in a nice little bottle from Whole Foods.

      there's a network of folks who will give away baby scobys. http://www.kombu.de/suche2.htm#usa
      a couple in Illinois, but I am unfamiliar with the Midwest so don't know if they're near you or not.
