So. Boy. I wasn’t sure what to write today but I should post about my water kefir experiment. I bought my water kefir grains here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0051WV5K6/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And I followed the recipe minus the spring water, I used tap. I fervently hope I did not damage the grains but I was too lazy to go to the store.
So what do I think? Well…. I haven’t ever tried water kefir before, I’ve had kombucha and KeVita probiotic drink so I have no basis for comparison. This recipe called for molasses which ended up with a darker looking drink and a slight molasses flavor. Its only mildly carbonated and I’m not sure I enjoy it like Kombucha, but everything I have read says to add fruit juice to flavor. I’m going to add some stevia and ginger powder and see how that goes.
Here is a wonderful article about water kefir: http://www.crunchybetty.com/water-kefir
I have my 2nd batch ready to be strained tonight and I omitted the molasses so we’ll see
