What is water kefir?

Water kefir is a very easy-to-make fermented drink from culturing water.

Symbiota offers complete kits that take all the guesswork out, all you need is water!

Water kefir is rich in probiotics, has a delicate flavour and makes a great alternative for soda drinks.

Water kefir can be flavoured with fruits, spices and herbs, yielding a beautifully fizzy gut-healthy drink. 

Water kefir is a similar concept to other fermented beverages such as kombucha, but instead of having a SCOBY water kefir is fermented from water kefir culture also referred to as water kefir "grains".

Water kefir grains are small "jelly-looking grains" made up of bacteria and yeast.  

How do I make water kefir?

This kit supplies you with everything you need and is very easy for anyone to make. All you need is filtered or unchlorinated water. 

You simply dissolve sugar in water, add your culture to the sweetened water and then leave it to ferment at room temperature for 24-72 hours depending on the temperature. The warmer the temperature is, the faster it will ferment. 

The ideal temperature for fermenting and culturing water kefir is between 22 & 24 degrees Celcius, but it can still ferment between 18 and 26 degrees Celcius. 

Water kefir culture metabolizes the sugar and in turn, you are left with fermented water kefir loaded with probiotic bacteria, minerals and vitamins- great for gut health!

Once your kefir is fermented, strain off the fermented liquid (reserving your culture) add your choice of flavours to the fermented kefir, bottle and leave it to sit at room temperature for another day or two. This will result in the flavours infusing and a fizzy drink. 

Now your reserved culture is ready to ferment the next lot of sugar water. Your water kefir culture will last a lifetime if cared for correctly.

House too cold

Hi it hasn’t worked for me. I can’t get the sweetness or fizziness happening. I think its just too cold in my house and don’t have a hot water cupboard, so guess It’s a no for me. But if you have any advice then that would be great. Thanks

Great product but amateur fermenter

Received products 100% as I had the milk kefirs some time ago and they have been great and growing. But the water kefir grains don’t seem to be multiplying, first 3 batches were great and had a fizz to it but the last 3 have been flat and I can still taste the sugar and it doesn’t look like the grains are multiplying. Please help me, I really want this to work as I e let my milk kefir grains die
