Kombucha Kamp Live Water Kefir Grains are available for Worldwide Shipping!


Water Kefir Grains (also known as tibicos, ginger bug and African bees) are a composite of bacteria and yeasts that ferment sugar in a water solution to create a naturally carbonated, probiotic beverage. 


Water & milk kefir grains are lacto-ferments which have a milder flavor than Kombucha. 


Diversity is key to having a healthy microbiome (gut). Incorporating living bacteria and yeast from a variety of sources benefits the microbiome and boosts immunity.

These are living cultures cultivated in organic evaporated cane juice crystals and filtered water and shipped via First Class Mail.

  • Cultivated with organic sugar & purified, fluoride-free water 

  • May take a few batches to reproduce as the grains adapt to their new environment

These water kefir grains seemed to be working well but I let them sit on the counter in a bowl of sugar water with lemon for days I just got busy and forgot about them and I killed them. So I just bought a second set to try again =/

Efficient, patient and friendly service. This has been a fun, educational and tasty home project. At first I couldnt tell if it was fermenting - the temp was low inside my home and I remedied that by putting them outside but not in direct sunlight. Super happy, the sodas I have been making are fantastic! Looking forward to many more exciting flavors. Thank you Kombucha Kamp!!!

When I received my water kefir grains they had sat in the mailbox all day I'm 90+ degree temps. Worried that they weren't doing well I quickly put them in the fridge.
3 days later I tried to brew first batch ... No luck. Thence second and third one failed as well until the fourth one, which I put in the garage to sit for 48 hrs. Now I can't stop the grains they are ready before 24 hrs!
Five stars!

LOVE this product! I've made several batches so far. I do add a touch of molasses each time, which seems to keep it from being so sweet. It looks like the grains are growing a bit, and I'm looking forward to being able to make more than a quart at a time, because we'd sure drink more if we had it!

I love the water kefir grains! 5 stars! They took a day or 2 longer to ship than I thought they would so they sat in my mailbox all day on a 80 degree day...but bounced back no problem. They made a wonderful brew on the first try! I love double fermenting with various juices and dried fruits and my 4 year old son can't get enough! I used to brew my own kombucha and found it too acidic and strong to drink. Water kefir is a great alternative. I really couldn't be happier with this product!!

The kefir grains that I ordered from Kombucha Kamp arrived in a timely manner with all the instructions needed to help me get started. I have been enjoying the water kefir ever since. The two tablespoons of kefir grains have multiplied to 5 tblsp. I learned to make the lemon-ginger kefir, and I like it a lot. My picky-eater son has taken a liking to the grape kefir that I've been making using 100% grape juice. I also bought some Old Orchard Wild Cherry juice a day or two ago and used 1 part cherry juice to two parts kefir water, and it is delicious also!

excellent, these were shipped fast and packaged professionally. as soon as i got them, i placed them in a quart of room temp spring water, with a 1/4 cup of turbinado sugar.. i let them go for 24 hours, still a little too sugary, so i strained them and started a new batch. the new batch i let go for 48 hours and it was much better, it was really bubbling and the grains were floating up and down.. awesome.

i did buy some from a local store that were kept refrigerated.. they did not come to life after several attempts. same water and sugar.

i added just a bit of molasses to the third batch and they are really growing now.


awesome. i highly recommend these guys!

Five Stars for Kombucha Kamp! I ordered water kefir grains. As they were lost by the mail carrier, I emailed KK to ask for a replacement. They sent it out that very day and with excellent customer service. I got my grains a few days later and made my first ever batch of water kefir. That first batch was a bit slow and not much fermentation took place...the grains were clearly a bit fatigued from their journey. But I read KK's very clear instructions on how to remedy this situation, and within a few days, I had a perfectly fizzy, delicious batch of water kefir. In fact, my grains not only survived but thrived--within a couple of weeks, they had doubled in bulk, and I was able to start a whole new batch, doubling my output. I bought this so I could make water kefir for my boyfriend, who drinks way too much coffee and tea but no water. He simply doesn't like water without fizz, and constantly buying sparkling water or kombucha seemed out of the question...too many bottles in the landfill (and here's my plug for the environment: recycling bottles may be better than throwing them in the garbage, but drinking bottled water and other drinks still consumes TONS of our earth's precious resources in the manufacturing, shipping and even recycling stages...if you love our planet, don't buy bottled water!!) Neither my boyfriend nor I had ever had water kefir, and honestly, I didn't think I'd like it. Turns out we both love it, especially with the addition of a little cherry juice or a prune before a second fermentation...yum! Thank you Kombucha Kamp for a great product and great service.

I would rate them 5stars.........and I never give perfect scores!

The kefir that I've made is light tasting, but interesting; good by itself cold, but even better with a flavor, and I know that it is full of good things for my body. It doesn't taste a thing like milk kefir smells, which is a good thing! I'm not a yogurt person.

The WKG arrived promptly and were very well packaged! I didn't have time to use them right away, because it was just before Christmas, so they sat in the refrigerator for several days. When I had time to make WK, I wasn't sure that I could see any grains in the pouch; they kind of blended in with the liquid, but I poured them into the sugar water anyway. I put it all into a French canning jar, locked down the lid, put them into my car and drove 5 1/2hrs. to family for Christmas! A couple of days later I smelled the liquid and it smelled different; it had that lacto fermented smell. I tried some; it was still too sweet. I waited another day or two, then poured the kefir thru a sieve. (So, my first batch took a couple of more days to mature than the subsequent batches have) I had more WKgrains than I had started out with! I probably had 1/3C of them. So I made more kefir. The grains kept growing and reproducing and getting fatter and fatter. I started looking for victims to give them to, when I hit the 2C mark at the end of about 1 1/2 weeks. Thanks for the great grains!

I purchased water kefir grains here a couple of months ago, and am delighted with my purchase. They arrived quickly and looked healthy. We were already brewing kombucha, and the water kefir is a delicious additional option, as it is very quick and easy to do, and very tasty, lighter and sweeter than kombucha, and we now drink both beverages every day. We've tried a number of flavors for our kefir, and our favorites so far are plain fresh organic ginger (tastes quite a bit like ginger ale) and plain fresh organic basil. My grains don't seem to have reproduced yet, but with the grains purchased we are able to produce a quart of kefir every two or three days. Very pleased with my purchase.

I love flavoring it most with lemon flavors mostly like lemon-ginger, lemon-honey, lemon-honey-elderflower and just lemon are my favs. The picky family members enjoy this much more then the kombucha very sweet; however I still favor kombucha over the water Kiefer but both are fun and enjoyable to make and drink!

I am writing to thank you for providing me with the wonderful knowledge to grow Kombucha and Water Kefir. A "bacteria powered" colon is critical for optimal health in the marketplace today. Your online website is easy to understand and provided all the necessary tools to generate a bacteria powered body. I was skeptical at first about the time required to grow my own Kombucha and Water Kefir, but after about a couple of months, I saved time and money compared to purchasing other drinks at the store. In addition, the fermented drinks, which historically have been known to settle or clean the stomach and small intestines, were "raw" or fresh rather than dried. Things were going so well, I actually had more Kombucha and Water Kefir than I needed!

If a customer needs to improve health, then ordering from Kombucha Kamp is an experience worth its weight in gold.
