Product Description

*Keysands Water Kefir Grains* You will receive 1/4 cup (4 generous tablespoons) of our live active water kefir grains which will produce about one quart of water kefir to begin with. These little guys will grow quickly with proper care so you can make much more at a time! An easy step-by-step guide is included to help you start brewing your first batch of water kefir. We use Organic Whole Cane Sugar to grow our grains, but they are not picky eaters and will gladly thrive on any sugar you give them. We use a variety of sugars to nourish and keep them happy and active. There are endless ways to flavor water kefir which provides fun for the whole family; anyone can be a part of it. To offer you peace of mind, we keep their home cleanly and safe by using organic, natural products. We never use harsh, toxic chemicals around our family or our grains. Water kefir grains, also known as Tibi, Tibicos, Sugar Kefir Grains, Japanese Water Crystals and California Bees, are a culture of bacteria and yeast held in a complex symbiotic relationship. Water Kefir is found all around the world, with no two cultures being exactly the same. Typical water kefir has a wide mix of over forty different strains of healthy bacteria and yeasts in various amounts. The average probiotic supplement only has about one and lacks the dozens of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes that water kefir provides. People who cannot consume dairy products find that water kefir is an excellent alternative. And since the finished product if bottled will produce a carbonated beverage, it provides an alternative to sweet soda drinks for everyone to enjoy. We guarantee our grains one hundred percent and will make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. Our mission is to make this miracle grain available to all families. We carefully package our grains to ensure they stay safe on their journey to your home.

I have tried milk grains that I hated it tasted like sour cream, not a big fan of drinking sour cream. I did try other sellers and Keysand is the best for a couple of reasons. First he sent more than 4 tablespoons of grains, meaning I could go right ahead and make kefir without growing some more.

I was able to use the formula as he sent it which was:

4 cups of water
4 Tablespoons of sugar
4 tablespoons of grains

I also added some raisins and strawberry for additional flavor. I was going to let it go 48 hours but I noticed it was bubbly and probably ready after about 34 hours so I harvested the kefir and it is great. Probably the most refreshing drink I ever had, I drink lots of water and now it seems to miss a little something.

What I don't know because I am new to this is how much should you drink a day and I suspect like everything that is good for you, you can overdo it. Now I have to get my wife to try it, she looks at it as a science project and I guess in a way it is.

I highly reccommend this seller for for your Kefir water grains and I highly reccommend kefir, try it you will like it.

Thanks,
Barry

In 3 weeks, my kefir grains have multiplied from about 1/3 c. to 6 cups! I'm now able to divide them up and try things like making fruit-juice soda, sourdough starter and I'm even eating them--they have a nice, non-slimy texture and sweet taste. I'm watering my plants and drinking a glass of fresh kefir every morning and a fizzy bottled kefir every afternoon.

I haven't yet found anyone who wants my surplus grains, so I've even had to put some around my plants and throw a few away. This is one of the best purchases I ever made because it's fun and healthy. The only caution I'd sound is that it's something of a long-term commitment to keep making a new batch every day. You can rest them in the fridge but that's not supposed to be really good for them. They like to work!

BTW, my highly successful recipe is to use the recommended rapadura sugar, plus 1 fig, a few golden raisins, a few fresh cranberries, about 1/4 of a fresh lemon plus tiny pinches of baking soda, unprocessed salt and bone meal. They double in size and number with every batch!

For those who don't know what water kefir is, let me offer a quick explanation. Water kefir crystals are a live cultured product, like yogurt or dairy-based kefir. Many of our favorite foods -like cheese, bread, wine and beer - are made with cultures of bacteria and/or yeasts (thru the process of fermentation). The 'crystals' are actually live communities of beneficial bacteria that produce what are popularly known as probiotics. Think of activia, for an example. These colonies of bacteria live and grow in a mixture of sugar, water and fruit.
Water kefir is a clear, slightly fizzy drink. The taste and color varies, depending largely on what type of fruit you add to the kefir, but to me there is a definite (but pleasant) fermented taste. So at this point you might be thinking why on earth would I want to drink bacteria!?!
Many people experience digestive trouble, especially as they age. Also, using antibiotics (not to mention the rampant over-usage of antibiotics by the meat and dairy industries), can cause the die-off of beneficial bacteria in our guts. This leads to irregularity, which means we start taking pills, which only leads to more irregularity, or at least in my case it did.
I did a lot of internet research on natural remedies, which is where I learned about about all the bacteria that live in our intestines. There's a lot of them too! There are quite a few studies, but they basically all boil down to the same thing- the more varied and thriving your gut bacteria are, the healthier you are (generally speaking). I tried activia, but because of dairy allergies couldn't eat it on a regular basis. So when I read about water kefir, I decided to try it.

These are huge, beautiful, highly productive water kefir grains. I purchased grains from 4 different companies hoping I would get some good ones from some or all. These are fantastic...they have already doubled in size. Also, because of the heat the seller had to delay shipping...although this was no fault of theirs, they were more than accommodating!
Excellent seller all around - many thanks :).

As promised, Keysands shipped me my water kefir grains safely packaged and they arrived very quickly (faster than I expected!). I was so excited to get them going that I set them up in their first brew tonight and can't wait to see some results! Again, as promised, there were 4 tablespoons of live grains and simple, clear and informative instructions. I added a little blackstrap molasses along with raw sugar as they offered as a tip in order to help them recover from shipping. Their culture stock looks healthy and I am so glad that I ordered from Keysands! Thank you!!! PS- their customer service is excellent and friendly/inviting.

UPDATE: I am 32 hours into my first brew and they have already grown and there has been color change of the water indicating an extremely successful first run!!!! Fantastic product!!!
