This the first time I have used this Kefir Starter Culture! Best starter ever.It worked quickly and made a little larger batch.
Customer service was super. They helped set me up for success. This kefir milk was delicious. Already bought another packet.
It is really great product. It gives very tasty kefir yogurt and I used several time same kefir I made with Biena culture as starter. I can strongly suggest to give a test and see with your own senses.
Tastes great, Fun live culture experience.
I like the flavor, and I enjoyed how the flavor advanced as the kefir ripened. It started out tasting like a mozzarella, and made its way to a very refreshing lightly tart and easy to drink flavor. At one point it developed some effervescence, which to me is THE reason to make your own kefir rather than buy it in a store. I am on the third generation and it is still stable in flavor. Well ... cost is another way to like a stable culture. I make a gallon from a package and then make subsequent gallons. At about $3 a gallon of whole milk versus a cost for store bought kefir at $5 a quart it is a big savings. For 3 batches I spend $3/gallon x 3 gallons + $7 (for the starter) = $34 / 12 Quarts = $2.83 / quart. $5 - $2.83 = $2.16 savings per quart. Times 12 quarts = $26 in savings. A treat becomes a healthy staple.
The product worked great. I love they way it came out. My kids thought I was crazy but I made it with my fresh goat milk and drank it all.
