Have just made another kombucha...was wondering why it was always tunring out so vinegary and it was due to leaving the tea with the mother for too long....hoping this one will be a star! have still been drinking the last one but its a rather aquired taste : )

We have 2litres of raw milk a week going here in Gisborne if anyone knows anyone who might want to pick it up?

Hi Susie
I do have sour dough starter to share. Not water kefir but milk Kefirt. I also live in West Auckland, Titirangi.

I'm looking for some water kefir grains, milkKombucha SCOBY/culture and sour dough starter.  I'm happy to barter seeds, seedlings, free range eggs, baby Araucana chicks or water saving devices (aerators, gizmos, flow restrictors).  I live in West Auckland

The yoghurt culture we use keeps well in the fridge. Up to 2 weeks. Same with the kefir grains.

Thank you all so much for the advice on making yoghurt with kefir, I put the recommended amount of grains in and I have lovely yohgurt and it doesn't taste as sour as the others had.  A couple of questions, How long will it last in the fridge and if you don't want to make yoghurt for a week what do you do with the culture to keep it alive and healthy?

 

After Christmas I will have water and milk kefir grains if anyone wants any.

Thanks Jacee. We'll be away for a couple of weeks, so I might try freezing it.
Comment by jacee on December 7, 2010 at 12:26pm
you can freeze it. or you can leave it in the fridge and doesnt need feeding for a week or so... or or you can make a dough and feed every couple of weeks. from river cottage bread handbook

Does anyone know if I can freeze my Sourdough starter?? I don't want to loose it over the holidays.

THanks for the sourdough advice everyone...thinking it be best for me to start one up in Gizzy, get amongst the localised yeast cells. Nice one Peter.

I like that idea, Peter - it reminds me of Michael Pollan.

I've had my starter for over a year - I originally got it, locally, from someone on freecycle. Not sure how long he had it going for, but it works wonderfully. We had delicious sourdough pizza for dinner last night!
