Indefinitely! The hardy little buggers are live, consuming organisms that are in a constant state of reproduction. As long as you feed them periodically and give them rest by putting them into dormancy every so often, they will reproduce and ferment indefinitely. They have lived for over a thousand years. Some may get weaker over time for one reason or another (neglected, frozen, etc), they will do all they can to keep marching on!
Here are some tips to keep them thriving.

Leeza Zurwick is the Founder of Happy Gut and has a deep passion for living off the earth and using live fermented food as medicine. After being gifted some water kefir grains, she found it difficult to find consistent information on how to brew water kefir and she found it challenging to source the right brewing supplies. Through extensive research, trial and error, Leeza developed simple recipes and systems to ensure success and delicious results. After drinking water kefir daily, she noticed a significant reduction in bloating, clearer skin and her immune system was strengthened enough to not get sick, despite working in classrooms full of germy kids! Leeza launched Happy Gut in 2017 and made it her mission to share the age old wisdom, simplicity and incredible health benefits of live, probiotic rich, fermented Water Kefir.
