It contains skim milk powder, ascorbic acid, lactic acid and yeasts.
If not, could someone please recommend a good brand? Thanks.
I’m sorry I can’t answer if this is a good brand or not, as I have never made kefir myself. I ordered the following brand – http://www.savvyteasandherbs.com/products/Water-Kefir-Grains-Japanese.html
It should get here shortly so I can start brewing! They sent me a couple of pages of guidelines and recipes even.
I have seen some posts with recommended kefir starters. Maybe if you do a search you could find them.
