Easy to follow instructions. Already made 3 batches and going to bottle the 4 brew tonight. The grains have multiplied nicely and can now brew bigger batches.

Bought extra grains in order to make more water kefir at home, still very happy with the product and would highly recommend.

Followed the instructions and it worked well on the first try. I like to add flavour to the water on the second ferment and have lots of different flavours to drink. Great to have a home made supply of healthy gut microbes on hand.

I love this product. I find that it actually needs 2 days to ferment properly. If you leave it out of the fridge after straining, it gets even more potent.

I used to use the kefir for milk which also worked well except that it aggrevated my sinus issues because of the milk. This kefir for water doesn't give me that problem which I absolutely love. It's also a lot cheaper to use water instead of milk. I also prefer the taste of this one.

Thank you for your fantastic product and for delivering it so quickly. This was my first purchase from you. You have a loyal customer for life now.

Service from Faithful to Nature is always great but unfortunately, this product didn't work for us.

Unfortunately ours did not ferment at all. Followed all the instructions as per the leaflet but nothing happened :(

I enjoy making fermented drinks, this was a new one for me. Really enjoyed the process and would recommend it to anyone as it's really easy to make.

I am really happy with my water kefir. I thought I would be rating it a lot later because people have been saying it takes long to activate but it's been just about 2 weeks now and yesterday I started my first second fermentation after activation and its already carbonated! Just a few tips for trouble shooting: I used filtered tap water which I then boiled and let sit for 24 hours; I used regular brown sugar for the first week and then regular white sugar to offer the bacteria a varied diet( I will continue interchanging these.) and instead of changing the water everyday I started changing it every 2 days and noticed that was when I got the most activity from the grains which have also definitely started multiplying. This is so worth buying!

I would really love to rate this product well and love to say that my grains were working and growing well - but sadly that is not the fact. I have now bought 2 lots of this product from Crafty Cultures -many weeks apart - but despite best efforts, taking action from research on doing the best for your grains, it's just about surviving. I am now looking to buy more grains - this time live ones from elsewhere in order to successfully make water kefir.

I was so excited to purchase this and start making my own water kefir. However, I've been disappointed that, despite many attempts to active it, I've just ended up with sugar water :(

Easy to activate and loving my daily dose of kefir

As a newbie to water kefir there was no more easier way to get me started with water kefir than Crafty Cultures' water kefir grains and now I am hooked for life.

I have always had success fermenting food, but just cannot get this product to work despite following instructions to a tee. Sugar water is all I get. Will try again in summer when it is warmer.
23/05/2018, By Juanita
This is the third batch that we have bought and we have gifted one. We love making water kefir and the process to activate the grains was easy. A wonderful addition to our health and wellness regime.

A great probiotic alternative to milk kefir

Fantastic healthy alternative to fizzy drinks
02/03/2018, By Johan
No joy sofar. After 9 days nothing is happening.
25/01/2018, By Charles
Not sure, but it seems like it doesn't ferment all the sugar. I'll keep trying until I find the secret.
21/06/2017, By Georg
Followed instructions on rehydrating the grains several times over a few weeks. Changing sugar water every few days. Terrible sulphurous smell and no ferment. Only after following online recommendation to refrigerate grains for a week (in sugar salt and lemon solution) did they start to ferment the sugar solution and make a drinkable water kefir.
19/06/2017, By Nirvana
Couldn't get it to grow. Grains rehydrated initially but then started to disintegrate. Tried different types of water (Unfiltered, filtered, bottled water) but no luck. I've done milk kefir and that worked great as they much less fussy than the water kefir grains.

I highly recommend this site to anyone who is seeking excellent customer service, high quality products and superb product delivery.
I placed my order on a Tuesday, before 8am, and the delivery arrived the following day, at 10:30am. This company truly lives up to what they promise.
The Kombucha starter kit, water kefir grains and milk kefir grains have flourished, producing many litres of the probiotic drinks.
A very satisfied customer.
Thank you Faithful to Nature.

Love the fact that you
e able to buy dehydrated water kefir grains here!
14/10/2016, By Angelique
Very happy, product is doing far better than what we thought. Re-hydrated within about 2 days and is growing like mad.

I was really excited to receive these grains as I have had much success with both Kombucha and Milk Kefir- but can get it right ! :( The grains seem to be fully hydrated and have multiplied( I have about a cups worth) but they don seem to be culturing! I have followed the instructions 8 times and all I end up with, is what tastes like sweet water! Any attempts at a 2nd fermentation makes no difference.
I had been buying a locally produced water kefir so have been anticipating that lightly sparkling drink with a mild fermented taste but alas- no joy!
I am going to give it another bash, but wondered if you could advise?
Otherwise I think Ill research storing them and try again when I feel more enthusiastic. Will keep you posted- hold thumbs!

Used half my packet to get started because I was worried that the first batch would not grow or something would go wrong but the water kefir just keep getting more! Love drinking it and no problems to maintain.
02/05/2016, By Kerry-Lee
I started with great excitement and my grains grew and my water keifer has been so much fun, so easy to make and is a lovely product to sell in my yoga studio! Im now experimenting with different flavours... such a fun project for kids too... and you just cant mess it up!
