Live Water Kefir Crystals Starter Kit
These are live milk kefir grains that have been loved and cared for, and are ready to come live with you. You don’t need to re-hydrate them; they are ready to go. They will make you gallons upon gallons of kefir.
Note about the milk you use:
Please don’t use ultra-pasteurized milk when making kefir. Your kefir won’t do well. Many times organic milk that your purchase from a store is ultra-pasteurized, even if it does not say ultra pasteurized. So if you choose to use organic milk, make sure you know what you are getting and that it’s not ultra-pasteurized. The problem is that ultra-pasteurized milk is heated at high temperatures for longer than regular milk, causing many problems when making kefir. Remember that kefir will add enzymes and good bacteria to pasteurized milk and make it a new food but when it is ultra pasteurized or heated for long periods the milk is no longer viable for making kefir.
Any other type of milk including raw milk that you get from your local farmer is still perfectly fine!
All of our starters are sensitive to excessive heat. Once your order has shipped, an e-mail with tracking information will be sent to you. Please use the tracking information to anticipate the arrival of your items so they can be retrieved from the mail-box and stored in the refrigerator promptly.
Please Read Before Ordering!
Water kefir crystals are sensitive to excessive heat. Once your order is ready to ship, you’ll receive an e-mail with tracking information. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mailboxes for hours on end. The heat can damage them and even kill them.
I strongly encourage you to use the tracking information to anticipate the arrival of your grains, so that they can be opened and fed again with fresh milk as soon as they arrive.
I offer free shipping and I only ship cultures Mondays. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mailbox for hours on end. The heat temperatures can damage them and even kill them.
When your package ships and you receive your tracking number, you can check on the tracking page with USPS. You will see a drop-down menu to the right that says; Available Actions. You can click text updates or email updates. Request Text Tracking to receive a text message when your package moves throughout the USPS network and is delivered.
Don’t let your new grains sit in your hot mailbox over the weekend if you happen to go out of town or something. Your kefir grains will be hungry and will die if neglected.
This would make me very, very sad!

I pack these live crystals in a little glass jar with molasses and ship them for Free via USPS Priority Mail. I only ship on Mondays. This allows time for the crystals to grow and multiply each week. Please watch for them and don’t leave them in your mail box. The heat can damage them and even kill them.
Your new crystals can last 2 weeks in the mail, but they will still be hungry when you get them! Make your first batch of water kefir right away to keep your crystals well fed and happy.
Due to the nature of these live cultures, we cannot accept any returns. Please know that all sales are final.
