Hello! And like the title states... I am trying to find where I can purchase milk kefir grains to make my own for the family.  I can't justify shelling out $$ for this, but we love drinking it!

 

I haven't been able to find them at my local HFS and I've been looking in the trading post here a bit. So does anyone have a recommendation  where they purchase their grains from?

 

TIA!

Kate

I took a fermentation class at my local co-op, and a person there offered her grains if anyone wanted some... I'm not sure where you're at, so that really doesn't help much... :/  Perhaps a posting at the local health food store?

 

Good luck!

I'll see if my HFS is offering any classes in fermentation coming up.  Mostly the classes range from sustainable living to cooking with local seasonal offerings.  I haven't seen fermentation being offered before, but it doesn't hurt to ask! smile.gif

I've purchased them from culturesforhealth.com before, but they are pretty pricey there. They didn't used to be, and I'm not sure why they are so much, but they work and the customer service is excellent. In theory, if you buy the grains, you shouldn't have to buy them again. However, dh put them all in a smoothy one day, by accident, and just recently fed them to the goats. He was wondering what the clumps were in the gaot milk. DUH. I need to get some more.
