Fizzy Ferments – Making Water Kefir
About this Event
Water kefir! The perfect summer drink. Learn how to make a yummy, fizzy, probiotic, inexpensive, naturally low-in-sugar, soda-like drink (it’s a bit like kombucha). Get a happy gut, happy children, less boring drink options, less bottles in the recycling system, and that irreplaceable satisfaction from making your own.
Join us at Kelmarna Community farm for a water kefir making workshop with local expert Amy Yalland, where you will get your own water kefir grains to take home so you can start making refreshing probiotic drinks for your family and friends this summer! Water kefir is a sweet, fizzy, fermented beverage that many speculate originated in Mexico where thrived in the sugary water of the Ountia (prickly pear) cactus.
Water Kefir is much faster and easier to make than kombucha, so is perfect for beginners to fermentation. It’s sweeter to taste than kombucha—so is kid approved!—but is very low in sugar so is well-tolerated by many diabetics (unlike regular soda pop or tonic water). It has a larger spectrum of probiotics than kombucha or yogurt so is great for your gut and for maintaining a healthy flora balance. And it’s much cheaper to make water kefir at home than buying kombucha at the supermarket every week.
