Where to find kefir culture versus grains or starter kit in GTA???

Moimoi | Mar 3, 201009:15 AM     60

I'm interested in making kefir but have read that if it's best to find the "culture". The question is "where"?

I read this on a site on the subject:

"The easiest way to obtain some kefir culture is to get some from a friend who is making kefir. Try to obtain kefir grains, not just a "starter", which is sometimes sold. Kefir grains can be used "forever", whereas "starters" can only be used 7 times or so."

I'm completely confused now... Is it culture, grains, starter?? Help!!!!

I know Noah's sells a starter kit, but if anyone else can offer some direction on where I can find these magic beans that apparently resemble "cauliflower", I'd be grateful.

Thanks.
