Does anyone have recommendations on how to reinvigorate my suddenly weak water kefir? Here is some background. I have had a batch of water kefir going for the past 6 months. It had been pretty vigorous until the past week or so. I've fed it molasses a few times a week and given it a pinch of baking soda monthly when it got too bubbly. It has been living in pure/organic low-fat coconut milk in a sealed quart mason jar. The only thing that has changed in the environment where the water kefir is stored is that our house has gotten much warmer due to the sudden arrival of spring. The house temperature used to be 60 degrees F and is now 70 degrees or higher. Recommendations?
Did you put them in coconut milk? or Coconut water? I usually use coconut water to revitalize mine, but it has to be organic. Mine do not like coconut milk. Also the warmer weather should get them moving.
And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 % guaranteed) - Seuss. tiny ad:
