    Maybe in the long run... (health wise). I've only seen it ever packaged in small containers. :P

    Well Elfboy is a single man, it's not like he's buying gallons of milk for a partner or a family. I can make one of those smaller bottles of kefir last for two or three days unless I'm totally starving and want to eat that all in one day instead of eating other things.

    I also only buy smaller containers of milk for myself. I buy gallons now sometimes because I privately cook for some elderly and disabled people now.

    However, I tend to eat more yogurt, kefir, cheese and sour cream so I can actually forget about buying milk.

    Also, it's so rich you don't need to drink as much of it as milk at once. It's got a thicker consistency.

    It is a cheaper alternative home made. Elfboy should hook that up.
    I'm dairy intolerant, but I've tried kefir since it has less lactate enzymes present. I do like it. There aren't many nondairy probiotic options out there... except for natto and kimchi maybe.

    there is some really good stuff at my health market, but it's kind of expensive for my current budget (which is $0 LOL) but it would be well worth the money if I had it

    Kefir is cheaper than many brand name yogurts, if you go by per ounce, and combine the fact that it has a higher probiotic content.

    Cheese is actually more expensive. Cheese is some expensive stuff.

    It also depends on where you buy kefir, as well. It costs more in some stores than others. You don't have to buy it at a health market @Elfboy, go to some place that sells ethnic foods.

    Unless you're talking about buying the grains...

    You'd have to buy grains to make it yourself. Here's a sexy video.

    Yes, that's what I said - you have to buy the grains. However, they're about five to ten bucks, and you can even order them on-line.

    Thanks for the video!
