Thank you both so much for replying. The milk is psteurized, it doesn't say homogenized. I haven't had time to get to the whole foods store which is 20 min. away. I'm looking for goat milk locally. I read that goat milk digests alot quicker than cows milk. I also read too much milk will constipate you. I've been drinking about a mug full daily. I've been culturing the milk for 24 hrs. then I put in the fridg. I can't tell if the grains are growing or not. By the way, how long does cultured milk last in the fridg.?
The cloth I used a paper towel with rubber band.
The texture is kinda curdy with liquid, not thick, one batch did come out thicker. I figured it was okay, as I didn't get sick drinking it.
While reading they say too much calcium can cause constipation, and I was making soothies the week prior to doing the kefir, and I was using bone meal in the smoothie. I wonder if that might be it. I will try drinking the kefir this morning a half a cup only. As I had the worst cramps yesterday.
