In this kit you have everything you need to brew 2 litres of your very own water kefir. Water kefir is a fermented beverage teeming with beneficial bacteria, it’s easily flavored, remarkably simple to prepare and offers a pleasant alternative to commercial soft drinks and juices. Kefir means ‘feel good’ in Turkish. Impressively rich in micronutrients, enzymes and beneficial bacteria, water kefir numbers among the top ten dairy-free probiotics. Water kefir, like kombucha, is first cultured by introducing a scoby (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts) into sugar water.
