Carrot Water Kefir
Water kefir is a beverage favored for both its fizzy flavor and billions of probiotics. It's a great soda pop replacement and boy is it fun to make! Thanks to its high concentration of beneficial bacteria, adding water kefir to your daily diet could give your immune system a hearty boost. This has a mild carrot flavor that is so delightful I can't really describe it. Just trust me – you will love it!
- 2 ounces carrot juice
- 14 ounces Basic Water Kefir
- Add your carrot juice to a 16 ounce bottle. (Make sure you use bottles such as Grolsch or Bormioli thick glass bottles. Bottles bought at craft stores can explode.)
- Add 14 ounces of Basic Water Kefir to the bottle leaving a small amount of room (about 1 inch) at the top. Seal your bottle.
- 2nd Ferment Water Kefir only needs to sit 1-3 days or until it becomes bubbly. Check it often by opening it to see if it is bubbly. (Warmer homes take less time)
Make sure to use bottles that are for brewing. If you are using glass bottles you must beware because there may be flaws in the glass or the yeast might just go crazy and blow up your glass bottle! You can use old GT Synergy bottles but my favorite is clamp down bottles by Grolsch. You can also find bottles at home brew stores. The clamp down lids are safer and are thick glass for brewing.
