    "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.

    - Leslie

    "Love our water kefir"

    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!

    - Jess

    "Mine have not yeilded a drink"

    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!

    "So easy and delicious."

    The directions and video instructions are easy to follow. I love making the cream soda version of water kefir. It is so refreshing.

    - Ruth

    "They are growing!!!"

    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.

    - Maria

    "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 was my first attempt at kefir so I ordered the kit. Instructions were clear and the online videos made it even easier to get it right the first time. Thank you.

    "Well pleased"

    Very straightforward product.

    "Looove it!! "

    Easy to read instructions, includes everything you need to get started except the Mason jar. I LoOoVe it!!

    - Leigh


    Instructions are very clear and I'm already on my fifth batch. The fizziness is a little hard to achieve, but I guess it depends on the recipe. Our peach flavor is not at fizzy, but the lemon/ginger was more bubbly.

    - Debi

    "Very pleased"

    Started my first batch of water kefir. Made a bottle of mixed berry 'soda' from it. Have made several different flavors since. Also have used in a recipe for fermented cucumber pickles. I will not be buying or making sweet pickles with vinegar again. Very pleased with the product and looking forward to trying more recipes using water kefir.

    "Dehydrated grains are NOT equal to the real thing."

    I bought real grains in milk from Cultures for Health 2 years ago and they were fantastic. So sad for me that my grains got contaminated and I needed to start all over. These grain come dehydrated and they are NOT as good as the real thing. I am going on 2 weeks of changing the milk every 8 hours and they barely look like real grains yet. Just a few "rice looking bits" in the bottom of the jar. I am not yet convinced that they will turn into a "plug" of healthy grains. Response from CFH: Thank you for leaving your honest review, and for allowing us to work with you further behind the scenes. We hope that with our troubleshooting, the grains are now on their way to making lovely kefir for you everyday!

    "Not good"

    Followed all the instructions but it never worked. Tried adding 1/2 cup then going back to origanal 1 cup but just milk with curds. Very very disappointed. Response from CFH: Thanks for working with us behind the scenes! We do hope you can update us soon with the progress of the grains. Be sure to contact as soon as there is an issue, so we can assist!

    Hello, first time with kefir followed directions and I have all I want for my family , works as advertised and is very good we love the smoothies and so do my 2 labs . cant wait to try other types

    - Hillary

    "As they say, no where close to "Nailed it" :("

    Thought this one was going to work out...the 1 and 1 1/2 cup milk turned out good...then as instructions state added another 1/2 cup of milk. This is when everything fell apart. I restarted but did not increase - just stayed at 2 cups...fail, tried again with 2 cups - failed. All I get is old milk with some curdles in it. So, thought I would decrease milk - went back to 1 1/2 cups milk (which had worked previously) - failed again. How can I have killed these things when EVERYONE says how forgiving they are? What sin did I do that these little Milk Kefir Grains won't forgive? Here I was worried about what I was going to do with all the wonderful smoothies I was going to make. Totally bummed. Response from CFH: Thank you for working with us behind the review scenes! We are happy we could fine tune things, and hopefully things are back on track for you and your grains. Please contact us if needed!

    - Terresa

    "hopeful solution"

    I bought the milk kefir grains after going much research into how I could repair my gut after a serious illness and 6 weeks of IV antibiotic therapy.. all the reviews said kefir was the answer and I sure hope so.. after my first batch--I've seen improvement..so far so good...intend to make this an ongoing part of my nutritional regimen. will take some time to get the hang of how it works as this is totally new to me.. Response from CFH: We are happy the grains are working well for you, and you are finding some benefits. Everyone is different, and we hope you will be able to find continuing benefits!

    "Works great!"

    I was a little bit concerned about ordering this. But, it turned out to be simple enough that it worked well for me and had no problem getting the Kefir Grains started. The first batch took almost 2 days, but we keep the heat down in our house so it really wasn't up to the optimum temperature. However, it has worked well and we have made 4 batches so far with excellent results. We found the instructions very easy to follow and very happy with the overall product. We did research the milk we purchased to verify pasteurization and antibiotic free cows and feed. This is a great product and we would, and already have, recommended it to others.

    - John

    "The kefir I recently bought will be given to my brother. So, I cannot give a review right now."

    It should be great! The recent order that I made will be a gift to my brother. Thank you!

    - Eufre

    "I'm very satisfied with the Kefir grains. I"

    They were activated very easily and I am making about 4 cups a day. I do need to learn how to slow them down or use more in my cooking. Response from CFH: Here's an article on how to slow them down! https://www.culturesforhealth.com/learn/milk-kefir/make-smaller-batches-less-milk-kefir/

    - Pam

    "One Year Later....."

    One year later and wow! They are still going strong. I have to consistently feed grains to my pup in order to keep production at a quart a day (Coat Looks Awesome! and she begs for it :)) . Warmer months are more productive than cooler months. I wasn't sure at first with the flavor, but after a few months, I learned what I like and what that looks like in the jar. It has done amazing things for my health and immunity! Amazing, and life changing. So yeah...it's worth it.

    - Steven

    "Happy with the product."

    The kefir grains worked just great, and taste great! However, I wish I had purchased just the grains, and not the kit. The temperature strip was not helpful (to me at least), and the strainer is so small that it takes forever to strain the kefir. I now use a fine strainer that I already had, and that works great. The cheesecloth was useful, and if I decide to try to make cheese, I think it will help. But, all in all, the grains are what I needed. I would order them again if I ever need to.

    - Judy


    I wasn't prepared for the final result. I've had a lot of kefir in my day. I love the sour taste. I followed the directions to a T. However all I got was rancid tasting kefir. I even tried the double fermentation how to. This was supposed to make it more palatable. It wasn't. I was very disappointed. Response from CFH: We are terribly sorry to hear this. Our efforts to reach you for troubleshooting the last two weeks were unsuccessful. Please contact us in the future and we'd be happy to help you!

    Good quality, easy to make, works even with the cheap whole milk we buy in the local store

    - Maud


    I was looking for a way to make kefir with raw cow milk and I tried various ways before but I often ended with an off taste that my kids didn't like. With this product, the taste is perfect and the consistency amazing, the cream rise on top and it a just irresistible...even my kids ask for more.

    - anne-flo

    "Somewhat variable results"

    I have had some difficulty getting a proper tasting kefir from this starter as opposed to the Cultures for Health kefir starter, which has worked flawlessly as a rule in the past. First 4-5 batches tasted more like an extremely mild, almost tasteless runny-type yogurt even though I followed instructions to a t. Experimented with the last batch: left it at room temperature (it is about 65 in my house or lower most of the time) and tighten the lid. After approximately 18 hours it finally tasted like kefir and was lightly effervescent the way it is supposed to be. Response from Cultures For Health: Although in general milk kefir needs 72-75ºF to work, they are live cultures and subject to change/adapt, so good for you for manipulating variables to get it to your liking! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need assistance.

    - Nita

    "I love this product"

    Originally I purchased this product because it had a wider variety of bacteria and yeast plus more packets per box. I understood that I would only get up to 7 uses out of it, but the grains were too much for me to keep up with. Even using raw milk, I have been able to keep one packet going (with great results) through well over 7 uses and the taste is wonderful!

    - AngelSarver

    "Body Ecology Kefir Starter"

    Great product. Tastes great, good texture and I can re-culture 7 times.

    - Jessieann

    "Normally like the Body Ecology Starter, but had a bad experience recently."

    I have used both water kefir grains and Body Ecology Starter. I actually like both. I have found the starter to be quick and convenient at times that I was not using the grains or did not have the time. I like the starter with coconut water, and think it tastes great. I use raw coconut water from Whole Foods, usually one that comes frozen, and it have made many batches and always liked it. Recently I bought two boxes of the starter, and the power was brown/rust color. I made it with the coconut water and it tasted terrible, so I threw it away. I tried another packet from the box, and experienced the same think as I did with the previous batch. The power in the packets of both boxes felt hard. I have experienced the packets hard before, but was told by Body Ecology that the power should be white or beige, and the carrier sometimes causes it to be hard if refrigerated. I went back to the water kefir grains, and they are doing very well, so am enjoying them currently.

    • Use it for: straining kombucha, kefir grains, tea, and lots more

    Starting at: $3.99

    Plastic Strainer


    "LOVE this little strainer!"

    This is perfect for straining water and milk kefir grains out of the finished product. Just rapping it lightly and constantly on the top of the jar as the kefir is being poured helps to move the product through the strainer. I look in every store I go in to find a good non metal strainer and have not found any yet, so I am very glad this company offered this great, simple, convenient, easy to clean product. The smaller one is perfect for using over a wide mouth canning jar. The larger one is great when used with a canning funnel. You should definately get one.

    - Buffalowingman


    Well made, strong, and NOT metal. I love it. This is the one you should buy.

    "It is perfect for my kefir grains."

    - Evelin

    "The best strainer for milk kefir I have used!"

    For the first eight months of making milk kefir(store bought whole milk), I used my high quality large stainless strainer. Tiny, tiny grains would get trapped in the fine mesh and were impossible to wash out. I finally gave in and order this 3.5" strainer. The straining process is actually much faster and thorough! I use a canning funnel to support the strainer over the canning jar. With a couple of gentle taps, the thickened kefir goes right thru and the grains stay put. A few tiny, tiny grains work their way to the underside from the tapping, but a gentle scrap with a spatula retrieves them. There are no seams; there are no hiding spots for stray grains or any other foreign debris. It cleans up easily too. After months of thinking it would be a dumb purchase, I bought it and for six months I have absolutely loved it!

    - Debbie

    "A note about the large size"

    This is a good strainer. However, I wanted to point out that the larger size does not fit over a standard quart jar. That may be obvious if you bother to measure a jar, but I missed that detail. I was thinking I'd go for the larger size to have a greater value and accommodate more grains, but instead I wish it could fit perfectly with the quart jars I use for kefir. Maybe this tip will help someone else choose the best size for their purpose. Response from CFH: Thank you for your feedback! What we find works great (we love this larger strainer too) is to use a funnel that the strainer can sit upon it. We use a wide mouth funnel, and it's perfect! Good luck!

    - Anna

    "Perfect! "

    What can I say? This is the perfect little high-quality plastic strainer! It's ideal for straining out kefir grains while making kefir water and is just the right size and works perfectly with the bottles and a funnel. I haven't had any problems with wear and expect it to last for years. In fact, I have now purchased it in both sizes and would happily buy another if only I could convince my sister to begin making ferments! I love this company! :)

    Our favorite air-tight bottles hold just over 16 ounces of goodness while your brew gets fizzy.
    • Use it for: bottling kombucha, water kefir, and more for carbonation

    Grolsch-style Flip-top Bottles, 500 ml (Case of 12)


    "Completely satisfied!"

    This was my first set of Grolsch bottles and after reading tons of negative reviews of those sold by other venders I was skeptical to say the least. I wanted to wait until the completion of my first 2F with these bottles before reviewing them in order to give a completely honest review. The glass as well as the wire is very thick and resilient, definitely of excellent quality.The seals are what I was most concerned with prior to purchase and they exceeded my expectations! My Kombucha came out perfectly carbonated, allowing me to achieve my sought after goal of a good brew. I am very much grateful, so much so that I just placed an order for another 36 bottles! Thank you so much CFH! Islam. Namaste.

    - Andre Moore-El

    "Great bottles for my Kombucha "

    Couldn’t be happier! Quality thick glass! Stoppers work very well! Can’t go wrong with these bottles!

    - Redbeard

    "very hard to close"

    Lots of trouble to close these bottles. I hate them. Perhaps we'll get used to it. First batch of water kefir was well carbonated and very tasty. Response from CFH: Hi Elizabeth! Yes, the new bottles are indeed a bit difficult to close. They will get better as time goes on, but you really do want them to hold in those gasses and not let air in!

    - Elizabeth

    "Great value "

    Very nice solid bottles.

    - TD

    "Really nice!"

    These bottles are working very well. Didn't think I needed a case but that was an error in my thinking. Love the dark color and the weight. Very durable. Nice to be able to store the water kefir in these. Will be playing with the secondary fermentation soon. Right now just enjoying the Lemon flavored water kefir.

    - lin

    "Great bottles!"

    I am using these for water kefir and they are great. Very tough! They seem very durable and well-made. It was a bit of a learning experience to put them together, but not too hard after the first couple. They are stiff to close at first, but that's because they are so sturdy. Recommend!

    Bottle Brush


    "Not like I had expected. "

    The hairs on the brush have split to one side; one side of the wire down the middle has bristles on it and the other side has none. it doesn't clean like I thought it would. Not very happy with it at all. Response from CFH: We are so sorry to hear this! We will be contacting you soon, but please reach out to us anytime you are unhappy with one of our products - we'd be happy to assist!

    - Loraine

    "Not as expected"

    So I was excited to get this bottle brush, but was also disappointed at its HUGE size! LOL! My husband solved the problem by crimping the end of the wire and now it fits into the brown bottles I purchased for cleaning. Just be careful when you pull it out cause it sprays soapy water everywhere!

    - Brenda

    "Bottle Brush"

    Brush does not fit in the brown bottles I purchased from Cultures for Health. Disappointing because I haven’t found a brush that fits in the small neck of these bottles & therefore; do not use the bottles, either, not having a way to be sure they are clean. Response from CFH: I am sorry this brush does not fit - it is rather large, and works well with the brewing equipment on the site for beer, wine and cider. However, I have tried and true way to really clean the bottles, although with daily use you can just wash with warm soapy water and rinse them well with warm water. If you have stubborn debris, add about 1-2 Tablespoons of uncooked rice in the bottle. Then add a tiny bit of soap (not anti-bacterial) and 1/4 to 1/2 cup water. Cap the bottle and shake vigorously for several minutes. It may have to be done a few times if you haven't washed them recently. Empty the bottle, adding more water if necessary to ease the rice grains out. Rinse well with warm water and it should be good to go!

    - Theresa


    Wow because I can't believe I am writing a review of a bottle brush that cost $2. And wow because I can't believe how good this thing works. It fits easily into narrow bottles and big bottles equally well. The long handle makes it easy to maneuver to ensure a good clean. Yes the handle came folded in the box as everyone says but it's wire and you can just bend it back into place--no big deal. My old bottle brush was double this price and more solid..to the point where I had to shove it into the bottle tops if I was lucky to fit it. This brush is great. So yes, I highly recommend this product.

    - M


    Exactly what I was looking for. I used it to clean recycled kombucha bottles as well as bottles with a tight neck and it works very well. As other reviewers said, it came folded but I was expecting that and it hasnt affected its purpose.

    - Verdin


    hi guys, everything I have ever ordered from cultures for health has been a five star satisfaction except for this product. it arrived folded in half (I'm guessing to make shipping it easier) and when I unfolded it the bristles started falling out where it was previously bent... which opened up a space for bristles to continue to fall out... I ended up throwing it away after the first use. Response from CFH: We are so sorry, Alex! It sounds as if the brush was definitely defective if the bristles were falling out. We'd be happy to replace or refund, and we have sent you an email!

    I ordered the basic thermometer, but it turned out to be a mini thermometer. Very tiny and dials are hard to read! Response from CFH: The details section note this thermometer has a 1-inch dial display and is 5 inches long.

    "Basic it is"

    There is nothing fancy, just a "Basic Thermometer." If you don't need accuracy or long reach it will do a fine job.

    "Easier than what I was using."

    When I decided to make my own yogurt, I was using a candy thermometer -- something I already had. This is much easier to position and read.

    The thermometer works but disagrees with my other thermometers. I have two others that show to add starter at a lower temperature. I don't know which is most accurate. Also, the round top dial is very small and hard to read. Response from CFH: Thermometers can be calibrated. Please contact Customer Support for advice or for replacements for defective products.

    "So easy to use"

    I live in California so I dont use the heat much in the winter. Instead of heating the house I put these on some large canning jars with my mix in them and put them in a cabinet. I also got a cheap heating pad and set it next to the jars. This keeps the jars warm enough for the critters and now I know how the temp is. I was afraid the heating pad would be to hot.

    "stick on thermometer"

    My downstairs kitchen is not heated so these little stick on thermometers have come in handy. I now know that just turning the light on inside my oven raises the temp. to 88 F. so after a short time, it is best to move my heirloom yogurt to top of the stove and just cover with a towel to hold in the warmth.

    A tad small to read but not bad at all.

    "Very handy! "

    Perfect little helper and easy for my seven year-old to use when he helps make batches of our "soda." Unfortunately, I lost my first one and had to replace it, but fortunately it's very inexpensive. Very handy!
