How To Make Your Own Kefir With Fresh Milk Kefir Grains


Glass Jar for fermenting kefir
Plastic Strainer and Jug
Plastic Spoon
Cloth and Elastic Band to cover fermenting jar

Step One

Put the strained kefir grains into the glass fermenting jar.

Step Two

Add a small amount of the kefir in the jug into the fermenting jar along with the kefir grains.

Step Three

Fill jar with milk.

Step Four

Cover fermenting jar with cloth and secure with elastic band.
Place fermenting jar in dark place for 24 hours to ferment.
I sit mine in a small esky on the benchtop and cover with a towel.
Optimum temperature for fermenting kefir is 18 to 24 degrees Celcius.
When the temperature gets above this, place the fermenting jar in a small esky with a cup of ice cubes.
Do not put the lid on the esky - just cover with towel.

Step Five

Gently stir your fermenting kefir once or twice during the day to mix the grains with the milk.

You will find that the kefir grains will float on top and the milk will separate.

Step Six

After 24 hours your kefir will be ready.

Gently stir the contents of the fermenting jar to mix the contents together.

Strain the contents of your fermenting jar through the plastic strainer into the jug.

You may need to gently stir the grains with the plastic spoon.

Repeat the process again from Step One.

Step Seven

Pour the strained kefir in the jug into a glass jar or jug and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink.
