From what I understand, I can purchase kefir at my local healthfood store. I read that I add a packet of it to my soured raw milk and let the milk sit on the counter overnight? Is that how it works? And then do I refrigerate it again? Also, how much kefir do I use per milk? And after I've left the milk overnight, how do I use the milk? What does it taste like/what foods are best to use with it? I have a chronic mild yeast infection in my right breast that comes and goes (I've been nursing 6 months), and I've just now started purchasing raw milk. I read that using kefir in the milk might help (that the milk will have a lot of probiotics). Thanks for any tips!

There is a wonderful thread around here somewhere about kefir that would be helpful to you.

It kefir grains that you add to fresh raw milk. I havent ever made though my mom did I have dried grains and the book from Dom. My used for over a year and it never did help her yeast problems.

There is a probiotic 'bead' from Natrol thats supposed to get the most probiotic to your gut without it getting killed by acid in our stomachs.

I tkink kefir is yummy kinda along the lines of buttermilk IMO
