  • 2 sachets of kefir culture. Each sachet makes a litre of Kefir and if you save a little you can make two more batches from the first.


Kefir Starter Culture


Remove all contents from the jar and clean the jar, ball and cloth thoroughly. • Add 1 L (1 US qt) of milk to the jar, any milk is fine. The higher the fat content, the thicker the kefir will be. Alternatively, use 1 L (1 US qt) of coconut water or fruit juice. • Add 1 sachet of culture to milk or juice, replace lid and mixing ball and shake to mix the culture through thoroughly. • Remove metal lid, cut a square piece of cheese cloth, double layered, to cover the top of the jar. Secure with a rubber band. This allows the gas to escape during the acidification process and will protect the kefir from any foreign objects or contamination while sitting on the bench. For a fizzy kefir, simply secure and tighten lid without the cheese cloth, this prevents the gas escaping during the kefir fermentation. • Allow the kefir to sit at room temperature (20-30˚C/68-86˚F) for 24 hours. NOTE: In winter you may not be able to keep it at 20-30°C (68-86°F), so just leave your kefir to set for longer. In summer when it is warmer, the kefir may not need as long to set. • Once the acidification period is complete the kefir will be set if using milk. If using juice, it will not be set but will become less sweet in taste when it is done. Remove cheese cloth, replace lid, and then shake the kefir vigorously, before storing the kefir in the refrigerator. • Leave your mixing ball in the jar with the kefir and shake your kefir each time before pouring. • Your kefir will keep in the fridge for around 2 weeks.

This kit contains freeze dried culture. Store in fridge or freezer for optimal life. The cooler you can store it, the better for the culture.
