My Water Kefir Bomb

I have a bomb.  It’s on the kitchen counter.  I’m very worried.

My wonderful, dear neighbor gave me a jar of water kefir grains.  I was very excited.  I’ve wanted to try making water kefir for a long time but I’ve been too much of a cheapskate to actually purchase the grains.  Water kefir is basically fermented water.  Kefir grains are crystals of probiotic bacteria that ferment sugar water into a glass of pure digestive delight.  So when my neighbor gave me some of her kefir grains, I was very excited.

However, I have no idea how to care for water kefir grains.  Hence, the bomb on my kitchen counter.

In my typical too busy way of life, I set aside the jar and said to myself, Self, when I have time I will google water kefir.  Uh-huh.  Well, I didn’t.  And the thing with bacteria is that they continue to ferment and the fermentation process involves off-gassing.  And this is happening inside a sealed mason jar that is now too pressurized for me to open (where’s a man when you need one?).

So I’m hoping someone will get home before the jar explodes and I’m hoping I haven’t ruined my water kefir.  The saga to be continued…

    HAHAH ah yes… the water kefir bomb! I had a bottle explode in the cupboard once! What a mess that was!

    Your grains will be fine once you get the jar open! I have instructions and trouble shooting on my site (if you are still interested!)

    Let me know how your kefir works out for you! I hope you absolutely love it!

      Lol, I’ve managed to keep it from exploding, but I still keep forgetting about it in time for it to be drinkable lol. Bright side is that I’m pouring the kefir into the animals water buckets and it is helping their digestion. So as long as it doesn’t explode, it’s all good lol! I’ll definitely check out the site.
