That's interesting! I never heard of anyone growing their own kefir. They're large, healthy and pet-like? Do you give them names and take them for walks?
I wonder what they look like. Mushrooms? It sounds like fun.
How did you get started? Where did you learn to do this?
Ok, here's my advice (for better or worse). If you find your home-grown kefir so objectionable (smelly), why not buy a good healthy (organic) yogurt instead?
How old is your daughter and what health problems does she have?
