Once you've experienced the refreshing and health-enriching qualities of water kefir you will not want to touch another empty-calorie soda again. The fact that you can flavor it however you want (raspberry-mango carbonated drink or blueberry-coconut, whatever!) makes it even that much better.

We enjoy drinking this ourselves and are always happy to share it (and our recipes) with others. All you need is water, sugar and some dried fruits to keep your grains alive and happy and make delicious water kefir! We've found it to be a very rewarding experience and economical to boot. :)

This is one pro-biotic beverage you will not even find in the stores. We are very meticulous in making sure we nurture, feed and gently handle our kefir to promote vibrant healthy grains.

All of our grains are fed and nourished daily with organic whole cane sugar (and occasionally blackstrap molasses and organic dried fruits). Our kefir grains have been built over time from multiple sources worldwide to ensure that our grains have strains that are strong, balanced, diverse, vibrant, and flexible. Our little guys live in a clean home where organic, non-toxic cleaners are used and there are no toxic by-products in the air. Culture-friendly materials are used at all times when handling the grains. We want to support and respect the health of our cultures, ourselves and the world at large!

What You Will Receive

We are excited to offer our newly updated 8 piece kit which includes everything you need and more to begin your kefiring journey. The multiple sizes of jars and various special materials allow for you to easily produce the kefir you desire in the amount you desire!

1. Live active WATER Kefir Grains: You will receive 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) of live active organic water kefir grains. This will produce about 4-6 cups of delicious water kefir starting out (using the standard ratio). Our grains are grown in Organic Whole Cane Sugar. This sugar makes for extra healthy and happy kefir grains. It also gives it a slightly brown tint (as pictured). These are hardy, active and ready to produce upon arival! Keep in mind that these grains can thrive in any desired sugar and will change color based on the sugar used. We enjoy drinking this daily ourselves, and are very meticulous in making sure we nurture, feed and gently handle our kefir to promote vibrant healthy grains. Look inside your package for a unique informative card!

2. One 6" Durable Plastic Strainer
-Will easily strain a quart or more. Made of plastic and fine nylon mesh; convenient and culture-friendly material for your milk & water kefir. Dishwasher safe.

3. Standard Wooden or Plastic Spoon to help stir and strain your kefir.

4. One Swing Top Bottle:
-Specifically formulated to hold fermented beverages. Fun to serve and drink from! If sealed tightly they can also withstand a great amount of pressure and allow for fizzier drinks if you so desire. :) Also great for secondary ferments (where you add more flavoring). Holds 16 oz (2cups).

5. One sample of our special house-blend water kefir food. This sugar and mineral blend is a specially formulated mix of sugars and natural salts that we have found work wonderfully for the grains over our years of working with kefir. It also tastes good, if you ask us! :) (ps this means one batch of water kefir is completely taken care of - no other ingredients needed, just pour this blend in and ferment!)

Two Wide-Mouth Mason Jars (thick glass, culture-friendly, perfect sizes, dishwasher safe):
6. One 16 ounce / 1 pint (2 cups) for smaller amounts, storage of kefir, or storage of grains
7. One 64 ounce / half gallon (8 cups) to produce standard quart or larger amount

8. One Handmade Elastic Sustainable Brewing Cloth Lid
-To use as your culture's designated brewing lid (reusable, culture-friendly, breathable, bug/dust proof, and washable!). We love these and personally use these on every one of our ferments. Fits almost any jar - tiny bottle size to large gallon jars!

*Recipes: Including various flavoring, smoothies, and Italian sodas.

What’s the Difference Between Dehydrated and Live Grains?

Live Water kefir grains are fully active grains which will produce kefir right away. They are taken straight from their current fresh batch of sugar-water and sent to your home. They take less time to balance upon arrival than dehydrated grains and are more likely to both thrive and grow sooner.

Dehydrated grains (the crystals) are grains that have become dormant after being dried. They may require many days to re-balance and activate - some may even fail to thrive. Receiving live grains simplifies the process and saves you time. Some choose to ship dehydrated water kefir grains because of the difficulty and distance (ie shipping internationally). Live water kefir grains are extremely active even while shipping. We have found a secure way to package and ship them priority mail despite their activity and we guarantee they will make it safely to your home (or we will resend /refund).

We do offer DRIED water kefir grains as well in our shop. Dried grains are less expensive and can travel further distances with less risk. Great for international destinations or to send as a gift. You can also store these grains if you aren't ready to use them right away.

Traveling To Its New Home (Shipping)

We pack our fresh kefir grains carefully to ensure a successful journey to your home, wherever you may be. These are bagged securely and shipped Priority Mail immediately after packing.

We ship at the beginning of the week to help avoid the grains sitting over the weekend before delivery.

We do NOT ship LIVE grains internationally presently. If you are outside the US, we recommend purchasing the dried version.

Upon arrival, you will notice that the water kefir grains will be sitting in a light brownish liquid. The color is simply due to the organic raw brown sugar. If grown in white sugar, they will turn clear.

You will also receive a detailed, step-by-step instructions e-guide on how to get started and care for your kefir. Look inside your package for a unique informative card with a link to our e-guide, which will also be emailed to you.

You are also welcome to email us with any questions you may have now or in the future!

A Little Bit About Water Kefir in General

What is Water Kefir?

Water kefir grains create a zesty and delicious carbonated lacto-fermented beverage containing trillions of beneficial probiotics within each cup you drink. Water kefir contains upwards of 40 different strains of health-promoting bacteria and yeast. It is thought to have originated in Mexico, originally fermented with the juice of the Prickly Pear Cactus. Water Kefir grains are also know as Tibicos, Tibi, Sugar Kefir Grains, Graines Vivantes, Japanese Water Crystals and California Bees. Water kefir, like milk kefir, consists of bacteria and yeast existing in a complex symbiotic relationship. The benefits of water kefir are very similar to those of milk kefir, making it a perfect alternative for those who wish to avoid dairy, or just want another tasty addition to their pro-biotic menu!

Water kefir is loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible nutrients, vitamins and minerals. It is even suitable for some diabetics due to the low GL. It has long been known to promote and aid in digestion and overall health. Genuine kefir is different than the overpriced kefir you can buy in the stores, which is usually a simulated drink to mimic the flavor and is not produced by the traditional method, thus lacking the quality and health benefits of true traditional kefir.

Is kefir easy to make?

Yes, water kefir is fun and easy to make, and not something to feel intimidated by at all! It can be made with any type of sugar and fruit. You can create whatever taste you desire by choosing your favorite sugar and fruit. There are many delicious combinations out there and the resulting flavors with this are quite endless!
