I have always said, if you were to choose only one thing to ferment - one SCOBY - let it be this one. 

  1. When you choose to adopt milk kefir grains from us - you will join a huge extended family, all fermenting from the same original grains we started with. Milk kefir culture is a living being and will grow and provide you and your family with milk kefir for generations. They have been loved and cared for - grown, shared and fermented gorgeous milk kefir with us since I moved here from Belgium back in 2011.  And these are the very same grains that won us a delicious. magazine award ("Best New Product" in 2015)

Our Milk kefir grains are never refrigerated and are fed and refreshed every 48-hours with local, organic milk.  They are pulled from our vat the day we send them to you. (I would never recommend you buy Milk kefir grains that are sold in refrigerators in stores, nor any SCOBY in fact. Whilst you may choose to store your own grains in the fridge when you need a break or have too many,  you shouldn't pay for grains that have been put to sleep for a while and actually - for how long have they sat dormant?) 

Your milk kefir grains will come plump and vibrant, in a glass jar and are enough to make a litre straight away. You'll receive illustrated instructions and support from our FB group 'Ferm Fam.' You'll need to have a large jar, a strainer of some sort, and another jar to put the milk kefir into while you ferment the next batch. xx

Milk kefir really is the simplest ferment with the least steps. It is also perhaps the most powerful ferment, loaded with Tryptophan an amino acid that is well-loved around the world for the way it soothes the nervous system. Kefir also contains active lactase enzymes, which is why even some people with lactose intolerance digest it with ease and why it works a treat for all kinds of digestion problems. Just ask Roger, (sorry Rog). xx
You can ferment for less time depending on how sour you like it - the yoghurty flavour is familiar to children and adults alike, it is easy to flavour, and is a great, easy way for the beginner or advanced fermenter to get some good gut bugs into people they love. (Including themselves).
A good Milk kefir SCOBY is able to bring life back to pasteurised milk, (even UHT!) -  and will make a gorgeous creamy life-giving, gut enriching drink within a day or two. (We like 48 hours).  
With your milk kefir SCOBY, you can also make easy, delicious cultured butter, labneh, smoothies, all kinds of cheeses, whey soda - you name it. There are many ways to extend your milk kefir knowledge in my book Ferment for Good.  

Who knows where they began exactly - stories abound - but in this case - wouldn't it be lovely to track who has grown more and shared them over the years - it's incredible to think about how many grains we have passed on - and how those grains would have been shared as well.  Humans have treasured and protected this culture so that we still have it to share now, it's great to be a part of that. Enjoy adding life so easily to milk of all kinds. Oh and YES - these grains can adapt and ferment all kinds of mylks.  

Our thoughtfully flavoured, bottled and ready to drink milk kefir has been made to order and delivered to people too busy to make their own, (mostly chefs) around Melbourne for years but you'll have to email us to be part of that  - we can organise a pick-up or drop off within Melbourne only.
