Not kefir, but good yogurt
It produces thick yogurt with a good taste, but definitely isn't kefir.
Bad product, doesn't produce any kefir.
Completely useless product. Used it on the raw milk. I am not sure why it is called kefir starter. It produces nothing what would resemble a real kefir.
I was a little disappointed with the taste of the kefir at first but I was surprised to see the 'tang' continue to develop In the refrigerator after the initial 12 hours. Very good. Very easy. I am enjoying this product.
I used this culture with 1 gallon of whole raw Jersey milk which I pasteurized prior to innoculating. I gave it 18 hours to meditate and the resulting kefir was the finest I've ever had. It was wonderful straight or blended with fresh fruit. I will be making this instead of yogurt for my daily fermented dairy probiotic.
When i made the kefir, I let it sit for 24 hours instead of twelve- it took that long for it to reach that yogurt drink consistency, and it was delicious! My toddler drank it plain, but he likes plain yogurt. I found it perfect for savory applications- a delicious cucumber onion salad with mint, salt, lemon juice and olive oil, for instance. I'm used to making yogurt without a yogurt maker, so not having to try to maintain the perfect temperature made kefir making very enjoyable. I'm going to try the reculturable one next. Thanks Ricki!
