  • Using a clean garlic press, squeeze the ginger root through the garlic press. You can also use a juicer to extract the juice. Fresh-squeezed ginger works much better than placing a piece of ginger root in the bottle to ferment with water kefir.
  • Add your squeezed ginger root and lemon juice to your 16 ounce bottle. (Make sure you use thick bottles such as Grolsch or Bormioli glass bottles. Bottles bought at craft stores can explode.)
  • Add 15 ounces of Basic Water Kefir to the bottle leaving a small amount of room (about 1 inch) at the top. Seal your bottle.
  • 2nd Fermented 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.)
  • Once ready, you can drink or refrigerate for storing. (Drink within 1 week for optimal flavor and benefits.)
