We are currently proudly supporting the Citizen Science project:
“The Citizen Science project is part of the EU funded MASTER project and is happening in collaboration with Teagasc, APC Microbiome Ireland, and VistaMilk. The aim of the project is to look at the microbial diversity of water kefir throughout an extended period of fermentations. The citizen scientists were given our water kefir grains and equipment to ferment water kefir at home for ~5 months. During this time, water kefir samples will be collected by the researchers and analysed for their microbial composition to investigate how water kefir grains are adapting to different fermentation settings and practices.”

Fermenting at home has never been easier!
- You will receive a generous amount of water kefir grains, sent in a liquid starter solution to keep them happy and healthy on their journey to you.
- Our grains are extremely potent and 40 grams of kefir grains will produce approx 1L of water kefir every 24-48 hours.

- Our kefir is very easy to ferment: simply place the grains in sugar water, cover loosely and leave out of direct sunlight in a warm room for 24 hours or more, depending on temperature (full instructions provided).
