Water Kefir or Japanese Water Crystals have also been referred to as Sugary Fungus, Tibicos, Ginger Beer Plant, California Bees, Water Kefir Grains, Tibetan Mushroom grains, snow lotus, water crystals, tibi, Kephir, Paris, Kephir, kefir fungus, kefir d'aqua,and more. Regardless if they all are the same or are as unique and different - they all typical share a similar recipe and each are healthy and beneficial. They all are small gelatinous masses of beneficial bacteria and yeasts. Which yeasts and bacteria dominate will contribute to supple as well as dramatic differences. The influence of wild bacteria and yeasts as well as personal brewing preferences play an active ongoing role. For most home brewers what is important is simply taste, pleasure and a hint of health.


Water Kefir is different than Milk Kefir, though Milk Kefir Grains may also ferment juices similar to Water Kefir, and Ginger Beer.

All these are classified as LAB ferments. Lactic Acid producing Bacteria. Because these are bacteria as opposed to yeasts they are actually healthier in many ways (though the sugar content must be considered) . Lactic acid is slightly sour and generally pleasant tasting and quite healthy. As are the Lactobacillus bacteria. These ferments are considered Lacto-Soda's as they produce a pleasant sweet drink with slight carbonation and low alcohol. 

While Milk Kefir provides significant amounts of protein as well as probiotics and prebiotics, Water Kefir can be a significant probiotic and prebiotic source for vegans and people who are allergic to dairy products. Milk Kefir Grains have more nutritional content compared to Water kefir Grains, although Water Kefir has a wider variety of different microbiological composition. The main beneficial acid (Lactic Acid) is higher in Milk Kefir Grains while Alcohol Levels are Higher in Water Kefir and Ginger Beer. In terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine Milk Kefir is Yin nourishing and restful. Water Kefir is Yang and energetic especially when combined with Ginseng. In the same class as Water Kefir is Ginger Beer Plant. Ginger Beer is refreshing, energetic (yang) with special attention to the Stomach & Spleen. helping to settle disturbances in the stomach and digestive issues. All these grains are important for their potential health benefits. 

Consider a Mesh Tea Ball to use . Makes recapturing and straining your grains easy as pie. Avoid washing your grains down the drain.

    I followed the instructions and viola! all came out nicely. This is my first go at Kefir in any form and I love it. Each of the four water kefir came out beautifully. Might I say your instructions are peerless. No trouble following them as a guide.
