I made some great kefir from grains, but it separates. Is that normal? I just shake it up and it tastes fine. Just wanted to know if I am doing something wrong.

Hi Judy! Thanks for connecting with us! There are reports that indicate that beet kvass is an excellent therapy for chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, allergies and digestive problems. Please check this link on how you can easily make this in your own kitchen: http://www.foodmatters.com/recipe/Beet-Kvass-Recipe-Video. Hope this helps. Yours in wellness, Jasmin

Since I found this under the Vegan category I was a bit disappointed that it was made from milk. Can you make Kefir using non dairy milk such as almond?

Hi Karen, you are definitely able to use non-dairy alternatives such as coconut or almond milk :-) Renae

This is the question I was going to post as well. Looks like we will just have to try it, I might start with soy milk. Actually I don't really like the taste of any of the milks out there!

Hi there, I was wondering, Susan mentioned in the video that the milk she was using was raw milk which was unpasteurized which meant that none of the bacteria (good or bad) was killed off due to the heating involved in pasteurization. My question is if this is unpasteurized does that mean there is a risk involved in drinking it????? My second question is Can I make kefir using a store bought kefir? and would I only add raw milk to some of my store bought kefir to be able to do this correctly? Thanks in advance for your time and response :)

Hi Joudita, you should be able to cultivate kefir from a store bought variety, however, we do recommend the grains if you are able to access these! Unfortunately we are unable to provide any dietary advice with regards to raw milk given the food regulations, however, you will be able to access more information here: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/06/ron-paul-vs-the-fda-milk-police.aspx :-) Renae

How long will the kefir keep once you've made it? I might've missed that part...

Hi Cristy, kefir milk last for a couple of months but it gets really sour. :) ~ Pauline

I am assuming that using the 6 tbp of kefir in a new batch is the same as using grains. I have not been able to tell the difference between cream curds and grains. I use fresh goats milk as have not skimmed the cream. should I skim the cream or just enjoy incorporating it into the kefir. I am loving this by the way. so grateful to have found this

Hi Charly, yes this would work as it would act as the 'starter' for the new batch :-) Enjoy the rest of the recipes! ~ Iris
