Has anyone tried to make water kefir? I've been making it for the past couple of months as an alternative source of probiotics (yogurt doesn't agree with me). It doesn't taste bad or anything, but I sometimes wonder if it's doing any good. Maybe I'll pop some under the microscope later to see what I've been ingesting. :)

    • Nope I have never done that. Yes it does sound a little mad chemist 🤣

      If it works for you it is all worth it. I would try it though.
