Thanks Luke.

I am doing my first batch of kefir "beer" with sugar, molasses and hops.

Another question I have for you.. We say that kefir feeds on sugars, whether milk sugar (lactose) or other types of sugar. What if I add corn or oats in my wort? If they are not malted, is kefir going to "work" on them? I mean, break them down?

Thanks Luke! I wasn't considering the oxygen in my brew... I'll definitely try some with and some without airlock.

What about hops? Are they going to kill the good bacteria, or just stop the good bacteria from producing lactic acid?

Hi!

Seems like no one has written in this post for a while. I am going to try to activate it like yeast!
I want to brew a kefir beer and I was wondering about a couple of things...

Does anybody know if water kefir grains thrive on wort? Also if the wort is hopped?

If hops do not allow for the bacterial activity that creates the sour flavour... does that mean that they kill the bacteria and only allow for the yeast to grow? Or are there still going to be the probiotic bacteria in the drink, just not producing lactic acid?

Thanks!
