We drank the whole thing? Water Kefir Update
I finished "brewing" my first batch of water kefir. It filled up a quart jar. It lasted 2 days. I'm sad. It was good. I want more. Good thing I started a new batch. It will take a week before I can drink it. I am sad again. *sigh* I could have gotten another day out of it if the twins would have stayed out of it. They loved the stuff. But I made it for ME! It said on the sheet that came with the grains not to drink more than a half cup a day until you see how it reacts in your gut. Nice. Well, the only reaction so far has been a little bit of *ahem* gas. Nothing major. A little more than usual, but I am pretty sure you have no interest in knowing that! Just a warning, if you drink it, you will fart. I'm hoping that part will go away...soon. The taste of the kefir is really, really good! I had some raspberry syrup that I bought when I went to the Biltmore Estate forever ago and mixed it in. Just a little bit to color it. Divine. I cannot wait for the next batch to get done. I think I will hide it in my room and drink it by myself. No one would know...and I would win the fart game every time!
