I tried making Kefir, but I think I ended up with clabbered milk.   I left the Kerfir culture in the milk for 48 hours.  When I titled the jar, it was hard to tell if the milk had thickened.  Then when I looked after 48 hours, oh, boy, it was very thick.  So,  I separated the whey from the new cream cheese, no failed experiment.

I was given about 1 cup of milk kefir in a jar with a lid.  I forgot about not using a metal spoon when I first peeked at the culture by scooping one lump from the top.  There was many lumps below the one I touched.  My question is:
Might I have killed all the cultures?  Or, perhaps I just don't know when to stop the kefir from growing on my side board.  I don't know what to look for during the 24 to ?? time frame.

Can anyone figure out how to help me? Please.mischievous.gif

From what I've read its usually ok to use metal, especially if its stainless steel?
