How to make Kefir Yoghurt

Note: Do not use any metal bowls or utensils when making kefir yoghurt.

  • Place the culture you have purchased  ( 1 Tablespoon ) in the glass container. Cover with fresh raw milk about 500ml.  Mix well.
  • Cover the bowl / container with the cotton cloth and secure with elastic band.
  • Leave to culture for 8 to 24 hours. This depends on the season. Winter months take longer, Summer months culturing is quick. You may stir it during this time to speed up process.
  • Sieve through a plastic sieve into a container. This will be your drinking kefir yoghurt. What remains in your sieve is your culture to be used again. No need to wash it. Just add more fresh milk. The culture will grow every time you make yoghurt.
  • If you are going away and unable to make yoghurt, store the culture in a container with a lid. Cover the culture with a fair amount of fresh milk. Place in the fridge up to 3 weeks. Do not freeze.
  • Increase the amount of milk as the culture increases in quantity.
