Tips for later use

  • Collect ½ a glass of kefir that you can use for subsequent inoculation of 1 litre of milk.
  • You can repeat this process up to three times to make 5 litres of kefir in total.

Temperature requirements

In winter or if your place is quite cold, you might have to wait 24 to 36 hours with a temperature close to 20ºC until the kefir starts to settle.

If you have any question do not hesitate to let me know.
