Today I got some kefir grains from the Dom himself! After reading his site for the past year or so, discovered he lives around the corner to me! So I went around there today and picked some up. Got to see his artwork, and meet his daughter who is only a week older than my own daughter So I got a little lesson in kefir making, and some grains, and a taste of delicious goats milk kefir, and some organic freshly picked and dried oregano and some fruit (fertilised with kefir apparently) and now I have a jar of kefir sitting in my kitchen, hopefully culturing away! I can't wait for tomorrow to try it Just thought I'd share.

It worked! Took a good 24 hours, but now I have kefir! I have no tips really, but it was useful to actually see what it was meant to look like, and taste some. Much easier getting shown in person than trying to get written instructions.
