Love this for Goatmilk!

I am allergic to cow's milk, so I have to make all my own dairy products. I use this for my goat milk to make buttermilk and it works great. And it's easy to make. I highly recommend it!

easy and delicious

This culture is very user-friendly. I'm rarely able to maintain perfect temperature while it's culturing, but this culture is very adaptable. If it has been below temp, it just takes a bit longer. That's a huge advantage. I'm also able to use the buttermilk to culture a few new batches, although at some point you'll need fresh culture.

The silky smooth kefir/buttermilk

Great product, perfect measurement in the packet, super easy to make to receive a delicious silky smooth kefir or buttermilk... After adding a culture to the milk I keep it for 12 hours at the the temperature of 72°and then put in the fridge! Yummy!!!
