How I make my water kefir


I would like to share with you how I make my water kefir at home, most people who make water kefir for consuming it usually make small quantity's, with me I make 3-5 gallons buckets of water kefir that's 13.5 gallons, you might wander what the heck do I need so much water kefir? I guess we just drink allot of it. Anyways here is how I make my water kefir, the instruction here are for one 5 gallon bucket which uses 4.5 gallons of water.




What you will need.
9-Cups of water kefir grains
6-Cups of raisins
3-Cups of raw sugar
4 1/2 gallons of water


Start by mixing your sugar with water, then add the kefir grains and raisins, because I make so much each time I use cheese cloth to hold my grains and raisins, but you do not have to do that. At the beginning when I was making a gallon at a time I just mixed all the ingredients together and then I would drain them in a plastic drainer.


Here is the secret about having good bubble water kefir. After you mix all your ingredients let the kefir sit in a room  for about 48 hours, after that remove your kefir grains, raisins and bottle your kefir in beer bottles, let the bottled kefir brew for anther 12 hours. After the second fermentation immediately put your glass bottles in the fridge to prevent the bottles from blowing up. Trust me they will blow up it has happen to my cousin, he left a bottle in his garage and about 4 days later the bottle blew the bottom off.

After cooling you can just open and enjoy the drink and all the probiotics that are in it.

Drink to your health.
