"Wow! My new pet!"

I am very new to water kefir, but I watched the video here and have been reading 'Nourishing Traditions' so I dived right in and got some. (If you are hesitant, just do it - you won't regret it!) ...

    I love my milk kefir but wanted another alternative to use in smoothies that is not as tart as milk kefir. I personally love it, but my kids are still not willing to drink it. Will get there.

    So far I've only made one batch. It's going very well. I'll have to see if I can find a way to get the grains to multiply like milk kafir.

    Love my water kefir grains. So easy to do, basically no mess at all. I pretty much drink it plain, but have been thinking of trying some of the recipes!!!!

    I was really nervous, I've not made either Water Kefir or Milk Kefir before, although I have purchased Milk Kefir. I was HOPING it would turn out successfully and that my three grandchildren would enjoy the 'sodas'. Their mother is very health conscious but even she had not been exposed to Water Kefir. It was AMAZING!! Despite nerves and fears, my first soda (Pomegranate) turned out spectacularly and all three grandkids AND my daughter (her husband is going to be a harder sell) absolutely loved the soda and we are all impatiently waiting for the next batch. I have to get the rhythm so the batches overlap enough to always have some. Thank you SO much, the product is outstanding and we are all ecstatic about starting on milk Kefir once I get this system down a little better!!

    The dried grains re-hydrated easily and produce a nice beverage. They didn't really start bubbling until the third batch but the first two were still good, though wouldn't carbonate. The taste is vaguely coconut but not enough to put of someone (me) who doesn't like coconut. I would definitely recommend water kefir to anyone.

  9. new venture for me!

    Just finished rehydrating my first water kefir grains and started the first ferment - I'm using sucanat and they are looking very healthy. I'm not keen on sweet drinks so hoping the finished ferment will not be too sweet. I will try getting some stronger carbonated flavours to counteract the sugar. With any luck I will not be having to buy any more pepsi one for my husband who can't exist without his 'fix' everyday! Can't wait to try out for the first time!

    I love this. So easy to make. I have experimented with so many different flavors. Can't say any tasted bad. Mine has already multiplied and I gave some to a friend who is also very pleased with. Sometimes I do find myself craving it. I have wondered if you can drink too much, but I guess I've never gotten to that point. At the same time helping to keep me healthy.

      http://www.culturesforhealth.com/coconut-water-kefir-recipe/

      Finished water kefir lasts in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. The kefir will continue to ferment slowly, and the flavor will continue to develop and get stronger over time.

      Remember you will need to culture your water kefir grains in sugar water every other batch of coconut water, in order to keep the grains healthy!

  • From Daniela at 11/13/2013 2:05 PM
    • Can I use milk kefir grains to make water kefir and eventually try with coconut water if I make sure to rehydrate in milk? Would it be just as beneficial as a probiotic as if I was using the milk kefir grains for this?
    • Milk kefir grains can be converted to water kefir once they have been rehydrated in milk. We cannot comment on the probiotic content of them in sugar water because we do not have that information. There would be some probiotics if the grains turned the water to kefir (that would be your best indicator).

      Even if you do convert the milk kefir grains to water kefir grains, you will need to still feed it sugar water in alternate batches of coconut water.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Andrea at 10/30/2013 10:44 AM
    • Is there any way to convert a culture to coconut milk? We cannot have even traces of dairy milk and I would very much like to culture coconut milk. I just read that it cannot be done with water kefir grains. Could it be done with a kombucha scoby or some other beneficial culture?
    • Finished water kefir can be used to culture coconut milk. Please see the "dairy-free option" for making Coconut Milk Kefir on this page: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/coconut-milk-kefir-recipe
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Pehr at 10/7/2013 8:57 AM
    • A couple of times, when we have let bottles ferment too long or sit around too long before consuming, the bottles have exploded. Is there a way to stop the fermentation if one were to want to make a large supply and keep around for a while?
    • The bottles must be inspected prior to bottling and any that have hairline cracks should be discarded or used for something that causes less or no pressure (they make beautiful flower vases). Moving your second ferment to a cooler location would help slow the process, but there's nothing you can do to stop the pressure from building up when it sits at room temperature for too long. We recommend refrigerating your finished kefir after the second fermentation.
