Fizzy yoghurty stuff! Yay!

I love Kefir. Not only is it delicious, I generally feel better when I am drinking it. My stomach problems are generally better when I am drinking it regularly. I have been a big fan and drinker of the Liberte Kefir, but I would really like to try making my own because the store bought stuff is pricey. TELL ME ALL YOU KNOW ABOUT KEFIR!

I would love any tips or tricks to make the tastiest kefir I can. I like it to be fizzy, so ways to maximize that would be lovely. What are some good ways to flavour the kefir after straining it? How long would strained "finished" kefir last in my fridge? What sorts of things should I be careful of? Does skim milk work as well as, say, 2% or whole milk?
I also have read about water kefir, which I am super curious and interested in as well.
One problem I have, though, is that I have no clue where to get some kefir grains. I live in eastern Canada, in a fairly small-ish city, and I have yet to hear of a place where I can get some. Any help with that would be hugely appreciated.
