My Kombucha kefir grains don't consume brown sugar? (Rapidura/Sucanat)

They seem to make the desirable fizzy&sour kombucha when fed white sugar. But with brown sugar, the water the kombucha is in remains sweet and flat.

Unless were talking different 'prodcut' / 'different process'....  kombucha is made via the action of SCOBY on brewed sweetened tea.

Google "Cultures for Health", their website and links to videos will explain the whole process. I now procuce about a gallon of kombucha a week, I use a raw (not brown but not completely white) organic sugar.  When I was learning  / reading aobut kombucha, there were warnings not to use brown sugar because it messed iwth the process.

I use Sucanat for my water kefir sometimes and it has always worked fine. My water kefir is very unsweet.
