Milk Kefir GrainsMilk Kefir Grains Rinsed in Water

Milk kefir grains are especially for culturing milk into a probiotic, slightly carbonated delicious and healthy beverage. People who have issues digesting milk can sometimes drink milk kefir because a lot of the lactose is pre-digested.

The Great Canadian Kefir Hunt

Some time ago I read a lot about these little grains that you could put in milk or water and it would turn a regular beverage into a super food powerhouse of probiotics and vitamins. I have had digestive issues for most of my life. I take prevacid which is a "proton pump inhibitor" (PPI) that reduces the amount of stomach acid that is produced because of unbearable heartburn and esophageal reflux, and i have been taking it for many years now. I have also had a real problem with constipation.

Given that my grandmother died of colon cancer, and my mother currently has colon cancer, I was very interested in things I may easily incorporate into my diet to add a layer of protection. During my kefir research efforts, probiotics kept popping up as helpful. Research suggests that kefir and other probiotic rich foods and drinks could help with constipation and heartburn, and protect against bowel cancer, as well as a host of other benefits that surprised me!

I know that you can buy kefir in the grocery store, but I also read that if you could find someone who made kefir, you could get the kefir grains culture. The problem was none of the friends I asked had even heard of kefir, let alone made it at home. so I turned to the internet. I ended up finding someone in the United States who could ship me some, and it was a hassle, so I am happy to be able to help anyone in Canada who want them. 

I hope that waterkefir.ca will be where you turn when you want to buy water kefir grains in Canada.

    Hi Kefir Nurse,
    I am just finished second batch and it tastes quite vinegary or could I have added too much lemon?…how do I recover the grains or do I just make a third? Also am I to rinse the grains between batches.
    thank you

      Hi Marilyn Make a new batch daily. There’s nothing wrong with the grains. It’s just that you got dehydrated grains and they need to rehydrate and rebalance before they start making the kefir you are going to end up loving! :- ) This COULD take a week or two although in my experience it is only a few days. Just make sure as the grains grow that you are keeping the proportions of water, grains and sugar. This will likely mean removing some of the grains and having an extra batch going, or storing extras.

    Hi, I have just received your live kefir last week and followed your instructions to make kefir. The first batch kefir almost doubled. I threw away the water because it is just sweet but the water was normal. The second batch it increased by 80% only after 12 hour, but the water kefir becomes thick and syrupy. I rinsed the grains well and started the third batch, 12 hours later the water is still thick but not as syrupy. What have gone wrong?

    I followed your instruction on the sugar/water ratio with one dried fig(orangic) and Lemon. Should I continue to make the next batch or rest them in the fridge?

    Please help!

    • Kefir Nurse

      Hi Ida Check the ingredients on the fig first. Does it list some ingredient starting with sulph… or some other kind of preservative? Or ANY other ingredient besides figs? The figs should actually say “unsulphured” on the label else they are probably sulphured. I am betting this is the most likely culprit. If not please send me an email kefirnurse [at] waterkefir.ca
