Oh wow, good for you I'm still open to getting some real kefir grains .. Hey, if it doesn't pan out it's only $10 plus time to meet up locally with the seller.

re - goat milk ... Believe it or not, but I've found that full fat (3.8 to 4%) goat milk is harder to digest (and more "goaty" tasting) than 2%. Just my experience and opinion. The 2% is not higher in carbs, it's the same as full fat.


I still have some powdered kefir culture starter .. planning to experiment with a liter of commercial unsweetened cashew milk + 10g glucose (pure dextrose from a beer/wine craft store .. not sucrose table sugar which is glucose + fructose). It's needed to feed the kefir bacteria and yeast cultures. Will report back how it turns out

Love this discussion
