    I don’t make it but I buy raw goats milk.
    I just pour it in bowls and usually a couple tablespoons each.

    If you want it to be really easy, I’ve seen raw goat’s milk being sold at nicer pet stores, ready to feed. I know Primal has this product. One place I haven’t checked, the grocery store! I bet they would have a human grade version and it should be cheaper than at a pet store.

    The only thing the grocery goats milk will be pasteurized. Pasteurization kills good stuff.

    Kefir always needs to be started with pasteurized milk, raw milk has it's own set of unique bacteria that competes with the kefir culture during activation. Start your babies off with clean food. If you want to use raw milk, you'll have to slowly transition the cultures to raw milk over a couple of batches. You have to build them up from tiny babies to a ruthless army.

    "Ultra-pasteurized" milks (the ones that are shelf stable) won't work, they are heated too hot, and essentially cooked. It's cooked milk.

    What ever milk you choose to feed the cultures isn't as important as the diversity and health of the starter cultures.
