What are Water Kefir Culture/grains?

Water kefir grains are a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that form together to look like grain-like crystals which people either refer to as grains or culture. 

Water kefir culture is used to ferment sugar water into probiotic-rich fermented drinks. It is light, refreshing, and effervescent. Water kefir is generally milder than kombucha and does not have that sharp taste. 

You can flavor your kefir with fruits, herbs, and spices to your desired taste. 

Although water kefir grains all have similar bacteria, they do vary slightly from one to the next. Symbiota water kefir grains originate from multiple sources to maximize the diversity of bacteria; ultimately producing strong, active, and healthy grains. 


How do I make water kefir?

If you have not made water kefir before, you might consider purchasing our water kefir kit to make the process even easier. 

Water kefir is very easy to make and incorporate into your weekly routine.

You simply add your kefir culture to sugar water and leave it to ferment for 24-72 hours at room temperature (20-24 degrees Celcius). Once fermented, drain your water kefir off, reserving your culture for your next ferment. Once you have bottled your fermented kefir you can flavor it with any fruits, herbs or spices. 

Your culture will last a lifetime if correctly cared for.

Why is Symbiota's Kefir Culture Superior?

Cultures are nurtured and grown under licensing. Cultures are fed right up to the time of dispatch and are couriered on overnight consignments. This makes our cultures resilient and ready for their new homes. 

You are supplied a portion of active water kefir grains (3TBS or +-150 grams including starter liquid) which is enough to culture 3-4 cups of water within 24h-72hrs depending on the temperature it is fermented at. The warmer the temperature (but not exceeding 26 degrees Celcius) the faster your water kefir will ferment. 

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


  • Please use an urban address where possible.
  • Live cultures are couriered out on Mondays & Tuesdays.

Really happy with the first batch

Rehydrated them in water(sugar) as soon as I received them , next day put them to work - got a good fizz from the first batch, I expected it might take a few batches but good results on first batch. I was making Kefir Water in Australia for years so I am fussy about the grains because some just do not convert the sugar the same but these ones produce a great fizz so I am a happy customer!
