I tried making kefir water according to the directions and it didn't ferment at all. I used 100% cranberry juice (I looked all over on Cultures for Health website as to the type of juice to use but didn't find any information of what type of juice to use) because that is what was recommended (along with fresh lemon juice - which I didn't add this time because the directions didn't call for it - I will try another packet with lemon juice to see if I have better luck) when I make kefir soda with a different brand of kefir starter. I'm not sure why it didn't work. Since I've already paid for the starter packet, I will try again. Hopefully it will work this time.
Hi Lynette! I am so sorry to hear about the trouble you are having! If you could email into email@example.com I will certainly pass it along to our team so they can assist.
I tried this culture twice following the instructions exactly, down to every last detail including the type of milk. After it failed the first time, I thought maybe the milk was bad so I got another milk and it also failed despite following every last instruction. I bought a similar kefir culture from Body Ecology and it worked beautifully on the same milk. Cultures for health refused to give me a refund because I opened it. How in the world could I possibly know the product was bad before I opened and tried it? I waisted my time, money and even milk on something that didn't work and they won't even refund it. This is very unfair and I will never buy anything from this company every again.
Kefir starter culture is an expensive way to create your own kefir. The first batch worked fine. The second (using the first as a starter) was less fine - more sour, more liquid. I think this is an expensive way to make kefir.
Very disappointing product. Out of 4 packs only 1 made Kefir. Worse, I think of all the wasted milk. I'm an experienced cook, making everything from yogurt, to canned food to butter. Followed the recipe exactly. Really eager to have homemade Kefir but this product didn't deliver.
Very easy to use and foolproof
