Goat's Milk Kefir (Using Easy Kefir)

Goat milk kefir is different from regular cow milk kefir. It will not thicken like cow milk but rather stays creamy and is quite delicious.
Servings: 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 1 Packet Easy Kefir
  • 1 Quart goat's milk (See Recipe Notes below)

Instructions

  • Pour four cups of goat's milk into a quart-sized glass jar.
  • Sprinkle the entire contents of one Easy Kefir packet into the jar and mix well.
  • Put a lid on the jar.
  • Let this mixture ferment at 72° to 75°F for 18 to 24 hours. If the temperature is below 72°, let it ferment a little longer.
  • Place into the refrigerator. Even in your refrigerator, the fermentation process continues, but chilling it will slow down the fermentation of the healthy bacteria and beneficial yeast.
