This is a variation of the koumiss recipe http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f30/milk...e-info-381045/
only this one is done using a combination of White Labs champagne yeast and milk Kefir grains.
Kefir grains are a new toy we were recently introduced to at our store. One of our patrons came in for ez cap bottles and inadvertantly got us started making kefir. We make both the water and milk kefir.
Milk kefir is a SCOBY fermented yogurt like beverage.
I mixed up about 10 oz of honey in 3 cups of water dissolved some yeast nutrient and white labs champagne yeast, then filled container with 12 oz of active milk kefir with a small bit of grain then topped up with new whole milk.
Will keep this one updated complete with progressive photos.
I am hoping to get higher alcohol (maybe even 5%?)
I know that the high alcohol will kill the grains, but it should not matter as they will have plenty of time to work before the champagne takes over.
