HOW TO REMOVE CHLORINE FROM TAP WATER....
When making water Kefir it is vital that you use water that has had the chlorine removed. BEWARE not all bottled waters can be trusted some still contain trace amount of chlorine, this will eventually kill you grains.
Removing the Chlorine is easy to do at home however the easiest way of all is to use a water filter. Britta are my favourite but most water filters will remove chlorine.
If you do not want to filter your water then this is how you remove the chlorine:
- Boil the water (either in a kettle or pan, either is fine)
- Leave it to cool
It really is that simple!! Please do make sure that your water is cool before using it for your grains as if it is too hot, that will kill them too!
I generally boil the kettle before bed, leave the water in there overnight and then make my kefir in the morning with the water in the kettle (now nice and cold!)
