Batch #58 and this one fermented for 18.5 hours (compared to the last 48 batch that fermented for 48 hours!). Another smooth, creamy near perfect batch. Two in a row! No large whey layer on the bottom, but bubbles. I'm still learning.

The trials and tribulations of kefir lol.

Defrosted the kefrigerator. We've got a small fridge upstairs that I store my coffee cups of mixed kefir (w/chia seeds, instant coffee, and non-dutched cocoa powder).

Got one for breakfast the other day and it was frozen solid. Broke up and melted ok and I turned down the setting.

That's three batches in a row that were smooth and creamy, near perfect with very little curds after straining. This last one had some small bubbles at the bottom and a very small patch of whey.

Nearest I could figure, refrigerator set too cold but it didn't kick in until after I did a complete defrost then the ice age set in lol. It's much better in a creamy status than slush imho. All is well now.

It took about a month for my kefir to get to the awesomely creamy stage. It was real yeasty and... weird at first. Now it's the bomb.

I'm off it today as I'm testing whether powdered swerve might be having some digestive effect on me. Might just be me drinking a boatload of it in sweet tea lately. :-)

But normally I keep my kefir in the fridge in a big mason jar with a pop-up lid (this thing) and I just take 3-4 quick swallows throughout the day. Easy, clean, and I don't need to have tons of separate jars and/or do a messy pour job every time I want some.

Cool. I didn't know such things existed. Are they water-tight when you shake liquids?
