I don't have access to Raw Milk. Is there some form of store bought milk that is ok to use?
I have used store bought organic milk. Yes it was pasteurized. Still worked great.
I prefer my own milk mostly pasture raised in my ranch, but sometimes they aren’t in milk so… I have the store bill a try and had no issues. I’m sure the raw milk is better but this is better than none!
Hi Jenn, I am not a health professional and it is always good to listen to your local experts. However, in my own experience, if you know the farmer and the cows are pastured and the barn is kept clean, there is not much need to worry. For a very good article on raw milk, go here: https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/childrens-health/is-raw-milk-safe-for-babies/
As an inflammation sufferer I’d really like to try this as a holistic remedy. TBH I’m a little weary as a local health official warned residents of a recent salmonella outbreak last summer and urged against consuming unpasteurized dairy. Curious—is there is a way to ensure I’m not exposing myself or my family to unhealthy pathogens during the process of fermenting homemade whey?
A milky liquid separates from the curds of Stonyfield plain (whole milk) yogurt. It's not made from raw milk. Will this whey serve in making fruit kvas?
Hi there. I make Kefir Milk with grains. When the Kefir Milk is ready then I make smoothies or Kefir Cream Cheese. I have 12 Liters of Whey at present and need some ideas of what to do with it. I am using it to dilute fresh guava pulp so as to drink it. I read that you can feed it to your animals by adding a table spoon of it in to their water. Apart from using it as a Starter Culture in baking and fermenting, watering the plants what else can I do with it?

I use whey in many recipes. It's an excellent addition to fruit and beet kvass (see blog), sauerkraut, ketchup, mayonnaise, and kimchee (see blog). It helps these foods to keep longer in the fridge.
Yogurt whey. After straining my home made yogurt to make Greek style yogurt. There is an abundance of whey remaining. I've found very little information as to it's uses. Any suggestions?
