Water Kefir

The first thing that comes to mind when we here kefir is dairy products, but today I would like to share with you about water kefir. Water kefir is drink that has no dairy product in it, but has lots of probiotics. It is very easy to make and tastes great, in my house we have substituted all our cola drinks with water kefir.

For a basic water kefir you will need basic ingredients.
You will need

Non chlorinated, non filtered water, I have tried making it with different waters but the best one was Cristal Geyser water. I have found that the cheapest place to by Cristal Geyser water is in Bi Mart its always .99 cents for one gallon.

Sugar - preferably raw.

Kefir grain - you must understand that the Kefir grain used for water kefir is different than the one used for milk kefir. So when looking for kefir grains make sure you are getting the one that is for water kefir.

When you will purchase your kefir grain they will most likely come with instruction how the people made there kefir. I recommend following that in the first few batches and adjusting after you made few batches your self.

Raisins - you can also use different dry fruit, but I found that raisins particularly the dark ones are a good and safe fruit to start with.

This is basic ingredient of water kefir, it makes a great drink that your family can enjoy, it is also beneficial for your health, especially if you had any antibiotic treatments.

Here is water kefir that I bottle in beer bottles, but I must warn you that if you ever want to do that you have to keep it in the fridge because it is still active and can blow up the bottle.
