bella+bella Freeze-Dried Kefir Starter -- 1 oz
Good and easy
I have just started to make my own kefir and these handy packets make the process so much easier to make. I was buying store bought kefir, which I really liked, but the cost was adding up fast. I prefer the ease of making at home and Bella-Bella makes it simple to do. I will continue to use this brand.

versatile and keeps a long time
I like to use this with soy or almond milk. It's great to use in recipes calling for buttermilk or yogurt. If you store the package in the fridge it will keep for a year or more.

Easy, tasty and keeps on going
I've made kefir from other grains and this one was easier to get started and one package has been going 6 weeks now, making about 2-4 cups per day. Once the kefir is just barely starting to separate from the whey I strain it and add fresh milk to the grains left in the sieve. When we left for the weekend I just put in 1/4 cup of milk and sealed it in the refrigerator. I've now made cream cheese and am working on being patient to allow the remaining whey to drain to produce a very close proximity to the white table cheese, Serbian sir.

Simple and delicious!
I have made yogurt before but not kefir. After being told by the doctor my son should be drinking kefir and paying $5 a quart at Whole Foods, I looked into making my own. I ordered this kit and have made several quarts that is so easy to make, tastes delicious, and costs a fraction of what retail prices are. I will be ordering this again.
