A quick update on my water kefir babies:

One thing I learned is that kefir grains absolutely do not like being crowded. The first several batches I made smelled like bad fruit. It was kinda like a cheap home made hooch. After some reading I found out that I needed fewer grains in a jar. I started with about 1 cup of grains in a two quart jar. LilScrappy and I started new batches last night and I already have six jars with about 1 1/4 cup of grains in each jar! My babies is happy! The kefir now smells like the fruit I used to make it! These were made with pineapple and the kefir tastes like pineapple soda!

I'm not yet to the point of eating any fruit gaah.gif I've had this candida for a long time and it's going to take a long time to rid myself of it. Maybe 4 years to get it totally under control from what I've read.
The pineapple kefir sounds great!

The probiotics from the milk kefir, water kefir and cultured foods will kill the candida. In fact, many warn to take it slow because they are so effective that when the candida is killed it can cause a buildup of toxins in your body.
