Both Water and Dairy Kefir are highly-recommended for those following the Gut Ecology & Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M.) Protocol – or for anyone wanting to ensure regular intake of a wide range of beneficial probiotic organisms.

Ingredients

Water Kefir Granules

Application

*Follow the instructions on the Technical Data Sheet/packaging carefully.

You will need:

  • One 15-gram sachet of Cell-Logic Water Kefir Granules
  • A 4-Litre glass fermentation jar with a lid that fully seals and secures
  • Raw sugar (Optional: Dried figs, dates, treacle, golden syrup)
  • Slices of lemon
  • Slices of fresh ginger rhizome
  • A fine non-metal mesh strainer, a wooden spoon and a funnel
  • 4 x 1-Litre secure bottles for your 2nd ferment and final beverage

Serving Suggestion:

Flavouring your Water Kefir is limited only by your imagination.

  • Try adding finely-grated ginger and the juice of half a lemon to your second ferment 1 Litre bottle
  • Add ¼ cup of any fruit juice to flavour and provide sugar for your kefir microbes to continue fermenting – flavours that work well are pear, pineapple, all citrus and berries.
  • Add a few berries, a few slices of orange, grapefruit, lemon or mandarin.
  • Serve 250 mL in a glass with ice as it is or dilute with mineral water if you prefer.

Storage: When you are satisfied that your kefir has developed the fizz of a soft drink and enough sugar has fermented that it is not too sweet, refrigerate the bottles.

CAUTION: Pressure can build up, so be careful to release pressure several times a day. To consume, open bottles carefully over the sink with the lid pointed away from you. Store your bottles in the refrigerator. Kefir will continue to ferment, only much more slowly when chilled.
