    Re: How long is Kefir good once opened?

    At a gallon a week, I would DEFINITELY consider making my I DO :!

    A couple percent alcohol is the norm for kefir, Sometimes I get a batch that is effervescent and almost champagnelike.
    It's perfectly normal because many bacteria in the HUGE probiotic mix ferment sugars, ANY sugars, to ethyl alcohol. In kefir though, MOST of the sugar gets the stronger fermentation to lactic acid. A lot depends on time and temperature: In a factory, these can be held constant but at home I've gotten quite a range of subtle differences...almost all GOOD!
