Excellent! Review by CTGirl

This product is awesome, and super easy to use. Each packet can be used for 7 uses (if you save a little liquid from each batch). I started with coconut water kefir (which tasted pretty gross), but used a little to start some cows milk kefir, which was delicious. Great to keep the packets in the fridge or freezer if you want to make kefir, but don't feel like dealing with the grains. (Posted on July 2, 2014)

Good starter culture Review by Terri

My first experience with Body Ecology Kefir Starter was poor. The culture was bad; it was a clumpy brown mass and did not work. However, Cultures for Health sent a replacement that was good.

The packet contained the expected powder. It took ~36 hours to culture at room temperature 68-70 deg (it's the dead of winter here). The kefir had a nice, sharp flavor. I was able to successfully re-culture with some of the first batch. This time it took ~24 hours and came out great.

One thing I should note is that I did heat the milk to 180 degrees and let it cool before culturing it. (Posted on March 4, 2014)
I was disappointed that it did not thicken Review by sally

After two tries of making a VERY thin kefir, I emailed to ask if I was doing something wrong. The response I got was that it is SUPPOSED to be thin.....really? I will try again with the culture I have left in hopes that it does thicken a little more than my previous two batches.

partially successful Review by akcabinlife

This kefir culture was successful for both whole milk and heavy whipping cream several times now, but after 4 tries with coconut water, i am giving up. I feel like this product is overpriced and i do not understand why Body Ecology does not offer kefir grains. Seems like they're picking pockets to me, yet i'm grateful for the diet's wisdom and how it's helped me recover from candida. (Posted on July 24, 2011)
Not to impressed Review by becca

I wasn't really prepared when it came, so I refrigerated it for about 3 days. I don't think the starter helped at all. Try to be knowledgable of how to ferment before you get this. Also, I waited 3 days, not a good idea on my end. It was already weak when I used it.
