How To Make Probiotic Rich Water Kefir
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 quart
  • ¼ Cup Water Kefir Grains
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cap Liquid Minerals (optional)
  • Quart Water
  1. Fill the mason jar half way with spring water, add the brown sugar and minerals and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the kefir grains and top off with the rest of the water. Screw on lid and sit on counter for 48 hours.
  3. Strain the water kefir with a plastic or wooden strainer (they don't react well to metal) into a pitcher or mason jars and place in the fridge. Repeat this recipe to make another batch.
  4. Drink plain or add your favorite juice.
After 48 hours you can drink the kefir as is or add your favorite juice. I prefer adding juice or lemon and ginger water.
See my Water Keifr chart at the end of this post for different ratios of sugar, water and kefir grains needed for different size containers.
