How-To: Finding Kombucha and Kefir cultures

How does one go about finding one near them who would have these Kombucha and Kefir cultures?

Frank's Kombucha
International Kefir List
Dom's Kefir In-site
Dom's Kombucha and Vinegar Making pages

Here's how to find these pages:

For our first example here we will use the "Frank's Kombucha" keywords. Enter the quoted words (without the quotations) into the Google.com search engine. Be sure to click the radio button which says 'web' first so it will search everywhere for you. Then click 'Google Search'.

Do this with "International Kefir List" then "Dom's Kefir In-site" and finally "Kombucha and Vinegar Making" - you'll be certain to find someone geographically near you with Kombucha and Kefir Cultures.

Let me know when you are (or aren't!) successful at find others.

Cultures are living- alive. They grow. When someone is out of cultures it may take up to 6 months to finally have enough to share. So ask others if they have ANY and even if they can't share now could they possibly have some 6 months from now and how much would they like to ship it to you.

$20 for a Kombucha is a bargain. Figure at least $8 for shipping.

But Kefir... Their value is high. And if you were to culture kefir grains for the sole purpose of profit you'd have to charge $50 a teaspoon.
