I've been using New England Cheesemaking's YogoTherm Kefir starter for a few months now. I make a new batch about once a week. It has a tart flavor, a perfect thickeness, and I make it in my InstantPot! I'm on my third generation of the original starter. This is also a big win. I have several YogoTherm packets waiting in the freezer to begin again.
The only reason I gave it a 4 is because I have only recultured it once so far, will write another review later on also. I followed the directions the first time to get the culture going - it was awesome! on the first reculture, I just got the goat milk, and the keifer culture out of the fridge and let it get room temp (we live in Fl.), and mixed both together, set it on our gas stove where the pilot lite is in the middle and I got an awesome reculture. Thank u! Thank u ! Thank u ! Appreciate all u folks do for goats, cows, and cheese making! Nancy Gillespie
I gave this 5 stars because we have high hopes for it. Our yogurt packets are great but this just arrived and we have no tried it yet. The description online says you can re-culture this but I cannot find directions to do that anywhere? I'm a newbie. Any help?
First time making kefir, I felt like the directions we not so clear. I have 4 packs to work with the first packet did not work at all, I am working on the second packet to see if the results are any different. So far I'm not real impressed with this product. With that being said, I have bought lots of products from this company and have been very pleased with everything with the exception of this one.
