Hi, I'm new here...this site came up when I asked is kefir supposed to smell horrible :)
any ideas on how to get it past the nose and the idea that its bacteria without killing it. I have been growing some great fefir on my kitchen counter for months. They are large and seemingly very healthy. I call them my kefir pets. I feed them every few days with raw sugar and bath them in distilled water but I'm squeemish about certain foods. Anything odd or strange just makes my stomach do flip flops
I'd really like to get past that and add kefir drink to my family. My daughter has all kinds of health problems and if I learn to drink this she will too.

I'd appreciate any encouragement - thanks so much, andrea
I remember trying the Kefir yogurt beverage and it didn't have any odd smell/taste at all! I believe it was strawberry flavored and it was very good. It was like a yogurt smoothie almost. I can't say I know anything about growing it yourself, but that sounds interesting! I would try drinking the beverage in a cup with a lid and straw. Maybe this will keep your nose from smelling it so much if it smells strange. Also, perhaps there are different things you can add to it to make it taste good. Can you add fruit to it? Maybe try some stronger flavored fruits to help with the scent and taste. Good luck!
