Easy, Tasty, Healthy
Honestly, the most difficult part of making kefir with this culture is to get the milk to the right temperature prior to adding the culture and not overshooting and then waiting for the milk to cool back down. After that it is smooth sailing and the result is incredibly good. I love serving the kefir with a little bit of salt stirred in and over a couple of ice cubes, somewhat like a lassi.
I use raw A2-A2 milk and simply add the starter wait two minutes shake it gently in the jar then pour it off into my yogurt jars place uncovered in a towel insulated box in the oven with the light on 24 hours and I have a lovely delicious yogurt! I do have gourmet yogurt maker, but I find this much simpler and less mess.Yaaaa!
This is a great product. Works wonderfully with goat milk.
These are not kefir grains that will multiply. However, I’ve been using a bit as a starter on a new batch and it works fine. I actually like not having grains to worry about.
Me funcionó perfectamente bien, seguí las instrucciones de la bolsa y en 8 horas mi yogurt estuvo listo. Lo licue, le puse cranberries, endulcé con miel y quedó delicioso, me gustó más que el kefir comercial.
