  1. Not at all what i had imagined.

    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 our first go at a homemade health drink. It turns out to be easy and fun. Lots of possibilities on flavoring, and so far, tastes great!
    Do appreciate the helpful info on site!

  3. So Delicious and the Staff is Excellent

    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!

  5. 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.

  6. Bad

    I purchased over six of your products during the past year as gifts for friends- whom are either chefs or nurses. And what a let down; from the sourdough cultures which you no longer offer to the water cultures nothing survived passed a cycle or two. Such a tremendous disappointment for a company with such good reviews. Terrible quality from our experience.

    Response from CFH: We are terribly sorry for your experience with our products, Chef Gerald. We do stand behind our products, so please feel free to contact us at [email protected] so we can assist you. Our customer support staff has personal experience with all of our products from reactivating them to making them sustainable and viable. We do hope you'll reach out, as we have no way to contact you since there is no email address.

  7. Worked great my first try

    My first time ever doing this. I had read that you could train your culture to eat honey instead of sugar so I decided to give it a try. I activated the grains using honey water and again for my first fermentation. I then added orange juice with some ginger and tumeric for the 2nd fermentation. It tastes great! I really like kefir water. 5 stars all the way. This thing wont let me click on the stars.

    Response from CFH: Sorry about the stars, but it came through on our end! We are glad the honey has worked for your culture, but we do recommend for its health that only cane sugar is used...feel free to use honey with your excess grains though! That's awesome!

    The instructions were so easy to follow. Step-by-step. Clear cut. Easy. I gathered everything before I cut open the package.

    Glossy color instructions come with each box. I laminated mine. I put a post it note to help me keep track of the time that water kefir is done and time that second ferment is done.

    My grains have quadrupled in quantity. I am now making half gallon batches.

    I can barely keep up with the demand. My daughter and grandkids are coming by every few days to pick up their “soda”.
    I am able to use all the fruit I stored in the freezer from my orchard and berry bushes.

    So happy I found your site and that you have so much information for the noobie.

  10. Instruction Guide missing key information.

    As a newbie to the world of Kefir, I feel that some information is needed on the one-sheet guide that comes with these products. I had water and milk kefir sitting next to each other. Turns out this can cause cross-contamination and dissolved the grains. Similarly, the milk kefir deteriorated. Only after reading many of the troubleshooting documents did I discover the errors that would not have occurred with adequate language in the document.

    Response from CFH: Thank you for your feedback! It has been passed along to our content department. We thank you for working on this issue with your grains, and we wish you many successful batches!

    • 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/

    • 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.

  • From Dana at 1/1/2016 2:30 PM
    • Do you get all the benefits from water kefir as you do from milk kefir? I am watching my calorie intake.
    • To abide by FDA regulations, we cannot comment on the benefits or side effects of consuming cultured foods and drinks. It's best to consult a medical or nutritional professional who knows you best. Both kefirs contain different strains of bacteria and yeast that can affect an individual differently from another person also consuming the same thing.
