Love this stuff
I usually buy this from Swanson because cheaper than another online seller. I use it all the time. I don't want to have to go to the trouble of using and keeping kefir grains. This is very economical too because you can use about a fourth a cup of your prepared kefir to start another batch. The directions say to use a quart of milk but I use more than that even up to a gallon. All I do is warm the milk in the microwave to make lukewarm. Take a little out to dissolve the kefir starter then stir back in. I then cover loosely and put on a heating pad set on low and wait 12 hours or so. I can't drink milk but this is good for anyone who is lactose intolerant. Hope this helps!
