Milk Kefir is a delicious and nutritious beverage that you can easily make at home. Although there are certain things that you should keep in mind before you start making it.

  1. Activation of milk kefir grains with pasteurized milk is a must. Then you can gradually make the transition into raw milk.
  2. Gather your supplies beforehand to avoid any hassles.

Supplies to Make Milk Kefir:

  1. A glass jar
  2. A stirring utensil that is not made up of metal
  3. A breathable jar cover like a paper towel, butter muslin, or a coffee filter
  4. A mesh strainer made up of plastic for the removal of kefir grains

Ingredients:

  1. Milk Kefir grains (one or two teaspoons)
  2. Goat or cow milk

Procedure for Making Milk Kefir:

  1. Take about 4-5 cups of fresh milk and add some active kefir grains to it.
  2. Cover up the container with a breathable jar cover like a paper towel, butter muslin, or a coffee filter and secure it by a jar ring or a rubber band.
  3. Place the mixture at a room temperature.
  4. Culture till the milk thickens slightly and gives out a pleasing aroma. The time it takes for the milk to thicken depends upon the temperature. The process is usually quicker in warmer temperatures.
  5. When the culturing is fully done and the texture of the milk modifies, it is time to carry out the separation of the kefir grains.
  6. Now, take a new batch of fresh milk and place the grains in it.
  7. When it is finished, store the kefir inside the refrigerator.
