Milk Kefir Grains
- Product Review (submitted on September 1, 2013):
Right after getting my Cultures for Health kefir grains started I was due to leave on a six week RV vacation. I figured there had to be a way to keep the kefir growing with minimum trouble. There is: a French press, the ones used for coffee, works great. It filters out the grains when the screen is pressed through the kefir, leaving them in a tight space on the bottom of the press. I pour off the kefir, rinse the press part while adding fresh milk to the grains and voila, a new batch is started! An extra plus is that the screen/press part unscrews so I can keep it separate from the fermentation pitcher, and can use the pitcher lid without the screen/press. Everything is stainless and it works great. I got a 64 ounce press from Bed, Bath & Beyond (which isn't really 64 ounces, but close enough).
The culture is delicious! I am hooked.
