Easy and delicious!

I first used the starter culture a couple of years ago, when we were milking our goat. I had great results with the goat milk, and when we quit milking her, I liked making easy kefir so much, that I continued with organic whole (cow) milk from the store. I quit for a while, and started up again, a couple of months ago. I don't ever recall having a batch not work out. I'd say I have re-cultured 5-7 times from each packet. I typically let it culture for about 36 hours. Probably longer than most people do, but it works for me. I don't remember where I heard or read this, but I add a teaspoon of coconut sugar (and I use almost a 1/2 cup of kefir, rather than 1/4 cup of kefir from the last batch) and then fill the rest of the way in a quart glass jar with milk. I stir well with a wooden spoon, and put a coffee filter on top with a rubberband. About halfway through the culturing, I stir it again.
When first researching kefir, I considered using the grains, but that seemed like a process that would take over my life, and I find the culture powder to be so easy and reliable, that I am sticking with it.
Thanks C.F.H. I appreciate what you guys are doing.

So easy to make!

This is my first time making Kefir and I am thrilled with how easy it is to make! I've already made two batches and love the flavor.

Great easy culture

Love how simple it is to make and keep the kefir going. Just what I hoped it would be.
