How to Make Water Kefir-Picture Tutorial

Water kefir is my favorite way to get probiotics, I drink it everyday! And it happens to be easy, and inexpensive to make yourself. Considering most 16 oz bottles of kefir or kombucha cost around $3.50 per bottle, it can easily become an expensive beverage to drink regularly. I can make at least a gallon for $3.50! If you have little ones at home, making kefir is a easy, and fun way to have them help you in the kitchen.  Here’s the pictures and instructions of how I make water kefir. The first step is to buy kefir grains, or find someone in your area who can share extra grains with you. Dehydrated kefir grains can be purchase online at Cultures for Health.  If there is a homesteading type store in your area, they may also have them.
