" Love it!"

Just passed my 10th batch and loving every bottle of Kefir water I make! I love putting fresh berries w/ginger and letting it set out for the extra two days to cabonate. I've already noticed the health benefits too which is really why I bought it in the first place. The flavor and refreshment is...

  1. Easy to culture and tastes great...

    I'd never had water kefir before but wanted a probiotic that wasn't dairy based. This water kefir was very easy to culture and tastes delicious. It is a little sweet for me, so I'm going to try the second fermentation method they describe, with fruit juice.

    After "killing" our last grains (went on vaca and put them in the fridge, but didn't revive them in time LOL), we reordered and are back to loving our water kefir. It does take some time to get the grains acclimated to their new environment, but each batch gets better and better!

    I've been working on mine, following the directions diligently, but have only gotten sugar-water. I've gone through all the trouble shooting suggestions I've found online and with forums, too. Maybe I got a batch that just won't yield? At any rate, I was sad it hasn't been working for me.

    Response from CFH: We are so sorry to hear this! We are always happy to assist you so we can get the grains to do their job for you. Please contact us anytime directly!

    I'm really happy about the outcome of the water kefir grains. I do a second fermentation using organic apple juice and it's just delicious and refreshing. Family and friends are enjoying it. Thank you. Very happy with my purchase.

    I have not had them long (followed all directions to a T) but all I am getting is really sugary water. I have tried adding juices to get a fizzy drink in a second "ferment"...but no luck. Hoping this changes soon - or this will have been a rather expensive, time-consuming waste.

    Response from CFH: Thank you for reaching out, and for continuing to work with Water Kefir Grains! We hope by now from our behind-the-scenes troubleshooting you are having success, so please contact us if you need further assistance!

    This is my second box of water kefir starter. My first box did great until it kinda didn't any more. After a lot of help from the super-excellent chat support team, I decided that I had probably not followed the instructions exactly as I should have and decided to just start over. This second batch is even more delicious than the first (probably because I'm doing a better job of taking care of it!). So fizzy! So tasty! This is great kefir and if you have ANY ISSUES at all, do not hesitate to chat with the team. They are wonderful!

    Bought my first Kefir Grains from CFH several years ago, and they have been going strong all this time. I make Lemonade Kefir and Kefir Frozen Pops for my guys and they consider this a real treat...and they're oh so good for our bodies. Thanks for a great product!

  10. What I was looking for

    The grains were very easy to reactivate. After a couple of batches that were too sweet, they adapted and started making good water kefir. Making a fizzy soda with a 48 hrs second fermentation is very easy and it comes out delicious. I have been using them for about 1.5 months now and they are multiplying. Very easy to use and low maintenance, even compared to kombucha. I also find that they are easier on digestion than kombucha, no bloating or discomfort. Very good value.

  • From No bubbles or ferment smell at 9/21/2018 8:46 AM
    • My kefir grains have no bubbles, or ferment smell. I have using spring water for 6 months and drinking it in my smoothies. Just want to make sure this is normal. I have tried writing you several times. Please respond! Greatly appreciated! Sheri
    • Water kefir can take some time to develop bubbles on the primary ferment, but you can carbonate your water kefir at any point by following these instructions:

    • As a diabetic, I would like clarification regarding the sugar. I realize the process uses sugar, yet the box states ø carbs. So, the fermentation process utilizes all of the added sugar? There are no remaining sugars or carbs in the finished product?
    • The grains themselves do not have any carbs, and that is the nutritional information the box contains. Yes, the fermentation process uses up the sugar, but there is not an accurate way to tell when all the sugar is used up, or what residual sugar remains. The only thing that is known is that the longer the grains ferment the sugar water, the less sugar remains. The issue is taking care to not leave the grains much past 48 hours or they may starve, as you cannot tell by looking when all the sugar is gone. There is generally always some level of sweetness to water kefir, even though the sugar has been used or converted to a more digestible form of sugar. It would be best to consult with your doctor.

    • I rinsed Milk Kefir and placed in water with sugar. Can this be Water Kefir?
    • It is possible to convert your milk kefir grains to water kefir grains, but the process requires transitioning the milk kefir grains from culturing milk to culturing sugar water, effectively turning them into water kefir grains. You can reference this article on that transition process: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/learn/milk-kefir/convert-milk-kefir-grains/

  • From Gail at 4/23/2017 8:00 PM
    • I have been making Kefir water for about 3 months. The kefir seems a little thicker and I am having trouble with carbonation.
      Is there something wrong with my grains. they look very normal. I am using organic sugar which has been working fine before.
    • Your best bet is to email customer support so that we can troubleshoot your grains to see what changes may help!

  • From Bunni at 3/15/2017 8:33 AM
    • I juiced some grapes and used the kefir grains in the juice, but there was a lot of pulp in the juice and the grains got mixed in with the pulp which rose to the top. Is there a way to separate the grains from that pulp? Will the juice be drinkable?
    • Place the grains and pulp in a bowl of filtered or bottled water and swish them around. The grains should sink and if the pulp floats, you should be able to skim it off the top. You will likely be picking small pieces of pulp out of the grains for a time but as long as you remove most of the pulp, the remainder should eventually dissolve without causing any problems. As long as the fermented juice has a good aroma and flavor, it is fine to consume.

    • I bought the suggested minerals to add to my water as I only have access to Primo Water which I believe to be reverse osmosis. How many drops to a 3 cup batch do I need to add? Thank you!
    • The ratio is 5-10 drops per quart of water. For just 3 cups, try 3-4 drops.
