Kefir is really good for B's and I am buying Lifeway Kefir from store which gets expensive if you are eating a lot. I was thinking is there anyway I can make this my own like you can make yogurt from milk, can I make kefir from milk? Anybody has any idea?

all you need to do is buy a kefir starter and then you make it just like yogurt, there are lots of starters to buy on line, I've used http://www.bodyecology.com before and it works well

I have started to make my own kefir as well- we couldn┤t get it in the shopes- even though I live in "dairy"land

I don┤t use the real version with only kefir grains( the one you have to wash)- but I use a starter just like yoghurt.
So easy and very good.

This is a very good page about traditional kefir- made with real kefir grains:

Here's a good site with a lot of useful information about making kefir (and other things): CLICK


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I think the starter is easier to keep alive- but strickly speaking it is not pure kefir.

okay thank you all... I think making kefir from kefir grains is the best idea, I wonder is it easy or not.. When I order online, by the time it gets me do you think it will still be alive? That's my worry..
