About This Product

Kefir is a fermented and cultured beverage. As far as taste goes, it tastes a lot like a yogurt drink. What makes Kefir so great to have on hand is that it is nutrient dense. It has plenty of B vitamins, potassium, calcium and protein. Not to mention, like yogurt, the probiotics are important. They help improve the healthy bacteria ratio in your gastrointestinal tract. While you can use dairy milk to produce Kefir, you can also choose non-dairy options like coconut milk which makes a lovely smooth Kefir.

Most of the time, Kefir will ferment at room temperature. However, in the winter, it may be too cold for it to heat properly. The milk produced is creamy and tart but where Kefir is different is that it is a lot thinner than yogurt. So, what do you need to make the best Kefir? Kefir grains are the key. We cultivate our own Kefir grains using organic milk (homogenized). It's a daily ordeal, feeding them milk so they grow and multiply. They also grow larger through multiple feedings.

Our fresh grown Kefir grains produce a full flavor profile to create authentic fresh Kefir. When you have Kefir grains, expect them to propagate or to produce more grain. Dehydrated Kefir grains will produce Kefir, but it won't include many of the healthy bacteria and yeast that is produced using fresh Kefir grains. And, dehydrated Kefir grains may not multiply.  Our fresh Kefir grains are harvested on the day that you make your order. Feeding our grains daily with a little milk will allow them to multiply, doubling in volume every ten days or so.

In order to maintain a warm temperature in your Kefir vessel, you should consider fermentation heater belts. These belts will help keep your Kefir grains warm, especially when the colder months arrive. Now that you know where to buy Kefir grains, there’s no reason not to have the freshest Kefir grains possible. 

Use the proper strainer to collect all the Kefir grains, especially the baby grains which can fall through some strainers. Our stainless steel strainers are double mesh and their holes are about 1/32nd inch.

Includes 35-38 grams, approximately 2 Tbsp.

Do not allow your fermentation vessel to overheat. Position the heater belt above the Kefir grains/milk so you maintain a temperature of approximately 70-80f. Higher temps produce smaller grains.

    Grains woke right up after being in a hot mailbox and have been performing wonderfully ever since. Switched between cow and goat milk with no issues. Feeling markedly healthier in general since consuming daily.

    Wonderful

    Posted by Melanie on 15th Dec 2020

    I had purchased some keifer grains from a different place and they tasted awful. After researching a little more I decided to try these. I’m so glad I did! They taste clean and they were plump and fresh when they arrived.
