With water kefir, I think I read that the cultures consume the glucose faster than the fructose when breaking down the cane sugar, which leaves some fructose by the time it’s ready to consume. The longer you let it sit, the more cane sugar is consumed by the culture, but if you let it sit too long you risk having the culture die and the drink becomes kind of unpalatable. Also, it can become mildly alcoholic depending on how quickly it ferments (which depends on the amount of cultures present and the amount of sugar added at one time).
