This topic is for people who have or are looking for kefir starters (grains). If you have kefir grains available, or are looking to acquire some, just post a message to this forum.

As explained on our page about making kefir, you can buy both powder and grain-based starters (in our store) and also use grains which you get from a friend. We recommend trying both ways and see which you like the best.

Once we get a couple of people involved, we will have a kefir exchange at our store. Stay tuned for details.

Question on Kefir Grains

I would like to start making my own Kefir using raw cows milk, do I need to get grains from someone using raw milk, or will any cows milk grains work? I'm in Portland and would love to source some grains. Happy to trade something for them.
Best!

Milk Kefir grains in Chennai, India

Hi I am looking to buy some milk Kefir grains in Chennai, India. Can anyone help?
I used to make my own Kefir, in Delhi, for about two years using some grains that a friend sent me from Canada, but those grains got spoilt. My gastro-intestinal problems have returned in a month after stopping the Kefir so I need to start drinking it again ..

kefir grains

Hi, I am looking for some milk kefir grains in the Portland area. Kefir: why is it so delicious? Anyway, I can pick them up so you don't have to go anywhere, or we could meet somewhere if you prefer. I'd be happy to bring you a tasty six-pack in exchange! (I don't brew myself, but I'm pretty good at going to Plaid Pantry, if I may brag a bit).

Thanks in advance!
Monika

kefir grains available

Hi,

I live in North Portland and have been culturing my own kefir for about 5 years. My kefir grains occasionally spawn new colonies and I would be happy to share with folks, particularly folks in Portland (so I can avoid mailing them...). Contact me via ted [dot] labbe [at] gmail [dot] com

Thanks.
