Second Ferment Your Water Kefir

Water kefir tastes pretty plain unless you second ferment it. You can choose your favorite juice and make a delicious bubbly drink that is loaded with probiotics. Here is an easy recipe to give you an easy guideline to follow. Mix it up and experiment and find your favorite flavor. Always use thick glass bottles made for brewing.
Servings: 16 ounces


  • 14 ounces Basic Water Kefir
  • 2-4 ounces juice fresh, bottled, or canned. (fresh squeezed juice ferments faster)


  • Add the 2-4 ounces of juice to a 16 ounce bottle. (Make sure it is a good bottle made for fermenting.)
  • Pour just under 14 ounces of Water Kefir into the bottle.
  • Leave a small amount of room (about 1 inch) at the top.
  • Let sit on a counter for 1-3 days. Check it often by opening it to see if it is bubbly.
  • Drink or refrigerate within 1 week for maximum probiotic benefit and taste!
