as you can see it makes the store bought stuff look like crap. by the way under yeasts, it list candida valida, it is not the bad stuff you are fighting, in fact its a competitor:)

My water kefir is doing so well that im doubling it every 48 hours. I have a huge jar now that makes enough for me to drink all day long and I also eat the left over grains. Water kefir is by far the easier of the two for me to make.

Folks who rely on the store bought stuff are missing out on the real benifits of kefir. I thought kefir was some hippy shit that I would never do, now I look forward to it everyday. My health has improved drastically.
