Kefir!  There's something I didn't expect to see mentioned on a
homeroasters mailing list, but I guess I'm not too surprised.  I brew
my own kefir regularly -- drink a bit over a pint a day.  I don't
believe it's going to make me live forever or cure cancer (as some
claim), but it's tasty and fun.  Anybody else?

I love it. I enjoy pouring it over a fruit salad...
I have an electric yogurt maker. Can that be used to make kefir?

You need kefir 'grains', a natural mother-culture, to start making your own 
kefir.  Store bought kefir doesn't come close to homemade from my reading.
This site is 'it' when it comes to kefir:http://users.chariot.net.au/~dna/kefirpage.htmlI make my own kefir from grains given to me a very long time ago.  The 
grains multiply greatly with daily batches and the excess needs to be given 
away for others to start making their own kefir or you start making more 
kefir or the grains can be simply eaten.  Kefir grains are considered a gift 
from Allah where grains are handed down from generation to generation.  They 
cannot be made in a lab, the only way to get them is from someone who makes 
their own kefir.  It's a sharing thing. http://users.chariot.net.au/~dna/kefirpage.html#Kefir-historyIf you want to start making your own I can share my kefir grains as they 
multiply with homeroast list members but overall it will take time depending 
on the interest.
