ok i ive been reading different forums and more often than not i hear goats milk can make the kefir making process a hassle

heard things like it takes longer for the kefir grain to rehydrate and ferment, as well as making the kefir more thin than regular raw cows milk.

is this true?

which would be better for kefir, raw goats milk or raw cows milk?

Can you explain why? I know it's more digestible, but is there more than that? Is it more nutritious? In what ways?

Goat milk is superior. Always.

I was literally just researching this last night.

You can get kefir grains specifically for goats milk here: http://www.yemoos.com/productrawmilkkefir.html

Cow milk kefir grains will work just as well for goats milk, but they can take up to 5 batches to adjust to the different kind of milk. The first few batches will be not so great because the bacteria is still learning and adjusting to their new environment.

If you want convenience, go with raw cow milk. It's more widely available anyway.

If you want more digestibility, go with raw goat's milk. Just know that if you start out with Cow milk kefir grains, there will be a transition period.

I make goat's kefir regularly I have never made cow kefir so I can't compare the two, but for what it's worth, I don't find it hard to make and I really enjoy drinking it!
