We've made kefir the way Donna details on her website for years! https://www.culturedfoodlife.com/how-to-make-kefir
She has a lot of great info and tips that we've found to be very helpful!
We've found that blending the finished keifer for about 30sec on low in the vitamix makes it smooth and fluffy!
If you are wanting kefir grains, we would be glad to give you our extra grains. Just reach out to us!
