Adventures in Water Kefir, part 4. I'm making Hooch.

It's Hooch!

In an effort to up the level of carbonation, I tried pushing the fermentation time from just over 24 hours up closer to 48.  My experiment definitely upped the carbonation to a great level (like a soda pop), but as it turns out, water kefir and fruit juice can make a great carbonated alcohol. 

Not really what I was looking to do.

All fermented products of this nature contain some alcohol.  In fact, orange juice even contains a minor amount although you would have to drink gallons at once to feel it's effects.

So I'm back to just a 24 hour (or so) fermentation and a clear head.

Stay tuned.
