Kefir has been called the "champagne of dairy products." Our kefir produces a rich, creamy drink with a bubbly effervescence which may be sweetened with honey or maple syrup to produce a refreshing and nutritious dairy treat.

This culture can be used with cow, soy or goat milk and may be re-cultured.

The culture can be re-cultured but it is a complex culture (many different cultures) and is very difficult to get consistent results without good temps and time controls on the ripening.

CULTURE INCLUDES: l. cremoris, l. plantarum, s. lactis, s. cremoris, s. diacelilactis, saccharomyces kefir, skim milk powder, ascorbic acid

YIELD: One packet will culture 1 gallon of milk.

DIRECTIONS: Heat 1 gal. of pasteurized milk to 86ºF. Add and mix in 1 packet. Cover and let set at room temperature undisturbed for 12 hours or until thickend to desired consistency. Refrigerate.

STORAGE: Keep packages in the freezer, they will last up to 2 years.

NOTE: This is very simple to make using the Yogotherm, in the Home Dairy Kit. DS means Direct Set, which means they cannot be recultured. Good for 2 years if kept in the freezer. This culture will die in temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Please make sure that when the package arrives it does not sit in a hot place for an extended period of time.
