Due to this product including a live culture.  All orders will be posted on Monday's or Tuesday's only to avoid parcels being held in post offices over weekends.

Ginger beer plant (GBP) is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. Although a similar concept to water kefir; GBP grains are smaller, slower growing and have a sandy-grain like appearance, unlike kefir grains which are larger and rapid growing.

The ginger beer plant dates to the 1800’s and it’s thanks to The German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures Bank which was one of the few places that preserved these grains of antiquity before they became completely extinct.

Unfortunately, some sellers advertise ginger beer plants for sale when in fact these cultures are not genuine and are simply “ginger bugs” or hybrids from kefir grains.

Symbiota is extremely excited to now be offering this genuine ginger beer plant.

This portion of ginger beer plant is enough to yield 4 cups of delicious ginger beer within 7 days.

With the correct care your GBP will continue to grow overtime, and you can make larger batches of ginger beer.

Here at Symbiota we pride ourselves on customer care and provide ongoing support so that everyone can enjoy their fermenting journey feeling supported and confident.

Ginger Beer Plant troubles -

Wonderful service in getting the plant to me.
I have got Kumbocha, Jun, and water Kefir producing wonderfully - but the ginger beer plant just does not seem to be working for me. I am sure it is all to do with me - but just do not know what to do. I will keep going tho - just in case!

Ginger beer plant

I puchased the ginger beer plant and have made a few bottles. Im currently trialing the amount of ginger to add to get the spice right, but its very easy. I had tried numerous home made ginger bugs for gingerbeer with varying success, but using this plant is so easy


Very prompt delivery thank you

Arrived as expected
