So, after the second lot of fermenting, we now have 1 1/2 cup of Water Kefir Grains... Amazing! It doubled in size in one go!
Each batch you use 1 cup of grains only with 6 cups of water, etc... The extra we have placed in a bottle, dated and put in the freezer as a back up. Always good to have :)
With our first lot of juice, hubby added pineapple and pear juice to the 1 litre we had left. We, as a family are not used to having anything with effervescent in it. You could still taste it in the aftertaste but it was a total hit. It all got drunk very quickly! The second lot of water kefir, we halved the outcome and added organic sultanas as sweetener to one and cranberries to the other. Hope that works because it would be too expensive to keep using all that canned pineapple and pears... Must check out juicers...
It's a huge change for a family that only has filtered rain water or milk... ;)
We are getting there... Now, looking forward to my Matsoni culture and then we make yoghurt on the bench top as well. Yeah, baby!
