According to Sandor's book "Art of Fermentation" (on page 155-156), milk kefir and water kefir (tibicos) are different although similar in form. Water kefir consists of lactic acid bacteria and some yeasts whereas milk kefir involve a community of 30 or so different types of microbes.

I hope this helps.
