Kefir is a fermented drink made from the milk of cows, goats, or sheep. It is made by placing the liquid of choice in a non-reactive and acid-proof container, and then directly added with kefir grains, called as such because of their characteristic granulated appearance. The kefir grains, which comprise of a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, will be agitated in the container twice a day to ensure even exposure to the symbiotic colony so as to produce a creamier drink. After the fermentation process, which usually lasts for 24 hours, the kefir grains are taken out by straining. These can be frozen and used as a starter for subsequent kefir production. The fermented drink can then be consumed as a beverage or as an ingredient in a variety of recipes.
