Live Milk Kefir Grains Starter Kit
These are live milk kefir grains that have been loved and cared for, and are ready to come live with you. You don’t need to re-hydrate them; they are ready to go. They will make you gallons upon gallons of kefir.
Note about the milk you use:
Please don’t use ultra-pasteurized milk when making kefir. Your kefir won’t do well. Many times organic milk that your purchase from a store is ultra-pasteurized, even if it does not say ultra pasteurized. So if you choose to use organic milk, make sure you know what you are getting and that it’s not ultra-pasteurized. The problem is that ultra-pasteurized milk is heated at high temperatures for longer than regular milk, causing many problems when making kefir. Remember that kefir will add enzymes and good bacteria to pasteurized milk and make it a new food but when it is ultra pasteurized or heated for long periods the milk is no longer viable for making kefir.
Any other type of milk including raw milk that you get from your local farmer is still perfectly fine!
