That looks really good.  I think I'm going to get some kefir grains and try water kefir first.  We'll see what happens. Smile Smile Smile

Hey Joamy,

You might look to see if there is a local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation in your area.  I've gotten several emails in the recent past from my groups organizer regarding kefir grains and SCOBY's that other member have offered to share.  I finally had to ask what a SCOBY was just a few weeks ago   Blush  He said he plans on having a class next month.

Here is an article from the WAPF site you might like to read - http://www.westonaprice.org/food-features/continuous-brewing-kombucha

Good Luck.

There is a chapter, but it's pretty much just a yahoo group.   I did get a list of really good resources for local food.

The group around here is relatively new and doesn't do much but share information so far.  About a year or so ago i went to a meeting that was held at a member's home and we shared some organic food/recipes (that was my first taste of raw milk - delicious) and watched a movie about abuse in the meat packing industry.  Since then, it's just been emails with interesting information and, like I said, people offering to share SCOBY's and kefir grains.  He has also forwarded information when cow shares came available (in Virginia, that's how we get around the legal nightmare surrounding raw milk).    You might consider getting on their mailing list if you are interested in things like that - sometimes you can find people who want to split shares in a local CSA or a cow share if they are single or don't have a large family.  It's a good way to meet like-minded people (in regard to health and nutrition, that is).

I signed up for their yahoo group.  I didn't think I would be able to get raw milk locally and was pleasently surprised to be wrong on that one.

How do you make kefir? Do you need a special machine like a yogurt maker?

No, it is a fermented dairy product.    http://howtomakekefirgrains.wordpress.com/
