Product Review (submitted on March 4, 2014):
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.
