What is the shelf life of the water kefir culture?Updated 7 months ago
Don't worry about the crystals. The kefir crystals are robust. They can easily withstand a longer period of time in the bag. If the bag is distended, this indicates metabolic processes in the culture, not spoilage! Once you have the crystals, store them in the fridge, where they will keep for up to 1 month. The kefir will not go bad: In the worst case, you will have to give the culture a few brewing processes to develop its full potential again.
