Stormy's StoryThe vanilla gives this fermented drink the taste of a cream soda.
Water kefer can be bought in it's dehydrated form or as a life kefer.
Deb Crane sent me some last week Thank you Deb.
It is a probiotic drink without the heavy vinegar taste you get from Kombucha.
Kefer helps reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.It is loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible sugars, beneficial acids, vitamins and minerals. Water kefir supplies your body with billions of healthy bacteria and yeast strains. Folic acid (and B vitamins) increases as the length of the ferment increases.
pure vanilla extract
live water kefer or 1/2 cup dehydrated kefer
1In a sauce pan add the sugar and 2 cups water, heat until sugar dissolves (stir the entire time). the cool until slightly warm and add to a large glass bowl or jug along with the kefer, vanilla and the rest of the water.
2Allow to sit for three days and strain into a pitcher. You can then make another batch with the same kefer.
Note: In some places on the internet it is spelled Kefer and some places it is spelled Kefir. But it is the same product.

Stormy, how much Kefer does this need?

You use about 1/4 cup of the kefer. Stormy's recipe sounds so good and easy! It is very tasty. Like a soda pop, only good for you!
Also, the kefer will "grow" and you will have plenty to share or keep creating more.
I like to bottle mine in beer bottles that have the ceramic and rubber topper.
Make your own healthy fizzy drinks. :)
