Ferment #9, 5/9/16, Version #3, Kefir water. Finally success. I actually had to call Cultures for Health because my water kefir wasn't doing anything. No bubbles, nothing but sugar water. We tried everything and nothing seemed to work. It was sitting next to my dehydrator and that was the magic touch it needed.
