I mix the KVAS with a ginger drink I make – 5:1 KVAS:ginger.
For your second batch refill the bottle with filtered water and let it ferment for two more days on the counter. After the second brewing discard the beets.
Aside:- Folk medicine values beets and beet kvass for their liver cleansing properties and beet kvass is widely used in cancer therapy in Europe. Anecdotal reports indicate that beet kvass is an excellent therapy for chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, allergies and digestive problems. It is an excellent blood tonic, cleanses the liver, promotes bowel regularity, aids digestion, and is a good treatment for kidney stones and other ailments.
Sadly I have let this slip by as it is excellent. You need to keep making it because the starter comes from the previous batch.
