Due to this product including a live culture.  All orders will be posted on Monday's or Tuesday's only to avoid parcels being held in post offices over weekends.

Our genuine milk kefir grains are mesophilic symbiotic cultures of beneficial yeast and lactic acid bacteria. These are not to be confused with cereal grains, but rather they simply look like a grainy texture.

Milk kefir grains are used to ferment dairy drinks similar to drinking yogurt. Milk kefir is loaded with beneficial probiotic bacteria, more so than yogurt.

Although genuine kefir grains have common strains of bacteria, some grains vary slightly from one to the next. Symbiota’s kefir grains originate from multiple sources to maximise the diversity of bacteria, leading to stronger milk kefir grains and yummier, healthier milk kefir. 

Because Symbiota chooses only the best whole milk to grow our kefir grains in, our grains are alive, healthy and very active.

A portion of active milk kefir grains cultures 1-2 cups of milk within 12-24hrs. Thereafter 1+ litres can be cultured within a few days.

Here at Symbiota we pride ourselves on customer care and provide ongoing support so that everyone can enjoy their fermenting journey feeling supported and confident. 

Milk kefir is extremely easy to make. Simply add fresh milk to your milk kefir culture, let it sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours and then drain your fermented milk kefir drink while reserving your cultures to repeat the process (your cultures last a lifetime if they are looked after and fed dairy milk- no need to buy more culture!).

Milk kefir can be flavoured with a variety of fruits and herbs to keep you coming back for more. To read more on milk kefir click here

Sadly I just got about 3 or 4 grains out of this so I didn’t use it.

Sorry to hear you milk kefir culture did not turn out as expected. We ship a tablespoon of culture which is enough to ferment 1L of milk within 1-2 days between the temps of 22-24 degrees Celsius. The cultures are extremely efficient and effective and multiply very quickly allowing for customers to ferment 2L within a week at those temperatures. If you are unsatisfied, it is best to email us so we can address the problem. We are happy to address any issues and work with our customers for a satisfied experience.

Amazing service

After a problem start with courier issues, I am thrilled to have my gingerbeer plant and water kefir grains culturing away nicely. Amber went well above and beyond in her customer service and kept in touch over lockdown to make sure I was kept in the loop. The drinks produced by the cultures are delicious and I have found the cultures easy to maintain. Thanks Amber, you are a customer service star and I have no qualms directing people to your website when they ask where I got the cultures from. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
