20 grams milk kefir grains
16 oz organic and pasteurized whole or 2% milk
- Add the milk to a glass jar.
- Add in the milk kefir grains and stir the milk gently.
- Place a breathable cloth lid (like a t-shirt) on the jar and secure it with a rubber band. Allow the milk to ferment at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. The mixture should be thick and pleasantly tart.
- Stir the mixture. Strain off the kefir grains and add them to a fresh batch of milk. Store the finished kefir in the fridge in a sealed bottle for up to a month.
