I not too long ago ordered some Kefir from Etsy. I didn't think the little ones required so much milk or maybe I was doing something wrong? I ended up throwing them away - Horrible I know, I felt like crap afterwards.

How can I make Kefir without having to shell out so much money?

Can Raw and Pasteurize Milk be mixed? I mostly buy Pasteurize Milk but I also want to throw some Raw every once in a while.

I am not culturing kefir at the moment, but have for a few years in the past.

I got all my info from this site

I think you can mix your milk. They are very adaptive, your first batch might not turn out "perfect" when you switch the medium, but they catch on really quick what it is you are wanting from them.

I have bought kefir grains from the health food store. Nothing wrong with mixing raw and pasteurized milk, you will just get less of the benefits of raw milk. It would be cheaper though.

Thanks ladies!

I'm dying to get my hands on some Kefir, again. Want to make sure I do it right this time.

What do you ladies mix it with?

I didn't get to taste my first batch since they say one should wait a bit.

My favorite was to make herbal tea into a sparkling cold drink using the fermentation process of adding kefir grains. It was delicious.

For me, I liked mixing milk kefir with grape juice. Don't know why, but that was my favorite flavor.

I do fruit smoothies, use it to cook with instead of cream or sour cream, and make it into cheese with garlic and herbs. That's the kids' favorite -- I use the why I strain off to make fresh bread, then we eat the cheese on it.
