- Take 1 Litre water in a glass jar. Add 4 tbsp (60g) sugar to the water and dissolve well with a wooden spatula. (Make sure you’re using filtered chlorine free or RO water. If you’re using boiled water, keep it aside for a few hours to allow the chlorine to evaporate.)
- Add 1 tsp Sea Salt (Optional). This adds minerals for the water kefir grains to stay healthy.
- Cover the jar with a thick cloth and tie it well with a rubber band.
- Culture in temperatures between 20 – 29 degrees for 24 – 36 hours.
- Prepare a new batch of sugar water
- Strain the kefir grains from the finished water Kefir with a Plastic Mesh Strainer or a Muslin Cloth

Yes, you can experiment with palm sugar, dates and jaggery. Just
be careful about the quality. If it has additives, it might kill your grains.
The measurement for growing grains is slightly different, and
every batch responds differently. However, we recommend 500
ml water + 1 tbsp molasses + 50 - 60 gms sugar + 1 tsp pink salt per
30gms grains. This batch would be a very sweet one, but these
measurements will help the grain grow.
Kefir will continue to taste sweet. However, it will develop a slight
change in flavour. When you move a stationary jar, it might release
a few small bubbles. The difference in taste will be more
pronounced when you use alternate sugars. Please leave it to
ferment for another 48 hours and reduce the water quantity to
half and observe the changes.
If you see too many long hair-like strands, don't worry it's just the yeast. They're harmless. Rinse the grains, change the sugar water,
& leave it in the fridge for a couple of days to reset. Repeat the process.
You can use dates, raisins, apricots, dried figs, jaggery, coconut
sugar and palm sugar. You can also make it using coconut water
without adding any sugar.
