HOW to make Kefir milk

Anybody out there who knows the tricks to this?

Use kefir grains. You can buy kefir powder from the health food shop if you cannot get your hands on any grains.

I use raw milk (or rather did when I was buying raw milk). Almost fill an agee jar with the milk. Add in the kefir grains and put on the plastic lid lossely. Store in a dark place - ( used to put tthe jars into a black lined canvas bag with a draw string then put the whole lot into a big brown paper bag and clip shut) Leave on the bench for 24-48 hours at room temperature.

Remove the grain. I used to put them into a strainer over a bowl and leave for 15mins then return the strained milk back to the jar. I put the grains into a little more milk or coconut milk and stored in the fridge. Would wash the grains in filtered water when I needed to use again and drink the milk they were stored in.

Warning. If you like your food sweet then you will have to "acquire" a taste for kefir. By the time it is fully fermented it is very sour. I loved it like that but it certainly isn't to everyone's taste. Kefir is absolutely nothing like commercial, sweetened yoghurt.
