A couple of days ago I had some kefir and my reactions seemed to similar to me eating stuff with sugar in it and my allergies seemed to be active. I was only letting it sit for about 12-18 hours or so. It tasted better, but I wasn’t feeling good afterwards. I decided to let it sit out for 48 hours so the lactose (which is a disaccharide sugar) would be close to zero. I would mix it up every so often, which seemed to really alter it’s consistency along with making it very acidic tasting. It didn’t taste as yeasty either. I almost felt a buzz off drinking about a pint or so of it. Anyhow, this batch made me actually feel good after drinking it with no reactions at all. It doesn’t taste as good since there isn’t any lactose in it, but it’s super powerful stuff, and I feel very energetic after drinking it. Definitely not placebo.
All the other batches that I’ve made previously smelt like yeast, almost like bakers yeast. This batch smelt almost like cow shit or a horse barn, but not in an alarming kind of way. I think letting it sit longer also reduces the yeast because all the level of acid in it letting it sit longer. From my understanding yeast cannot thrive in acidic environments–they like it more alkaline. That’s why I think I got sick in the first place most likely; I was on antibiotics and taking shit tons of tums making my stomach/intestines really alkaline.

I am glad you are so positive about making kefir. I enjoy watching the grains grow and multiply. You mentioned consuming “about a pint”. If you are newly introducing kefir to your diet you should consider taking a few tablespoons each day and gradually increasing the amount. Kefir acts as an antifungal and can cause discomfort as a result. If you’re taking Molybdenum, then that should aid your organs as you experience die-off symptoms. Certain herbs can also protect your body as the candida dwindles.
Enjoy your “kefies”!
