Water Kefir Grains

So you ordered some water kefir grains but all you got were a few ieny mieny tiny grains in some sugar water. Now what? No worries, you can grow them very easily yourself.

  • A glass jar
  • Some organic kefir grains (no matter how few, it will work)
  • 1/4 C unrefined sucanat (the grains will “eat” the sweets and grow on those)
  • 1 quart or 1 liter spring water
  • Put the sweetener into the water
  • Stir in the water kefir grains
  • Let sit in a dark cupboard at room temperature for 48 hours
  • You will see your grains grow
  • Strain and restart a new batch with the grains until you have at least 1/4 C of grains
  • Your first batches won’t be very fizzy until you grew more grains but it is already fermented, so great to use
  • Now you have enough grains to make bubbling champagne like water kefir
To keep the grains fresh, store them in the refrigerator under pure water. A glass jar works fine. 
You can add lime or lemon or oranges and drink that fizzy water or use it in your smoothies.
You can also use your grains to make coconut kefir. You don’t need to add sweeteners here because coconut water contains natural sugars.
