Re: [Good_Kefir_Grains] Water Kefir
I just started using milk kefir about 5 months ago. Prior to that I used water kefir only. for about 8 mths .....I noticed improvement in my joint pain after about 6/7 weeks on water kefir.....Also there was a significant improvement in my energy levels......
Hope this helps

I too would like to see some testimonials on water kefir. Are they the same as milk kefir? Better? Not as much?
Can someone who has regularly used water kefir only (not milk kefir at all) and not changed anything else about diet, environment, exercise, etc. report what changes they noticed just by adding water kefir and what amounts they have used?
Some of the milk kefir feedback has been fantastic. Thanks to those who have shared.

>Hello all........Does water kefir share similar benefits to milk Kefir? When I read about some of the testimonials of Kefir, I assume that people are speaking on milk kefir only.

- Hello allI'd interested to know how you do your water kefir.I use 120g of raw sugar to 120g of grains with a blob of about 5 ml of molasses, ¼ of a lemon skin an all and about 10 or so raisins. I fill my jar up to 2 l and let it ferment on my bench for 3 days. To my strained kefir I add 4 bags of fruit tea and may be some lemon verbena from my garden and at random chamomile and calendular flowers. I let all that infuse for 2 or 3 days and then bottle. My grains are huge and filling (when I eat them;). My kefir is quite strong. About 300 ml of kefir is enough for an 800 ml water bottle (300 ml kefir 500 ml water). I do sweeten my kefir.Wishing you all a merry and blessed Christmas and new year.Christel'Treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight.
