buying kefir in Brussels?

Question

My nearest health shop in WSL doesn't stock it. I've seen lots of brands on Amazon but which to buy? Any tips welcome. Thanks.

Hi CMH,
If you can get a mother culture off the Internet or from someone you can make your own it's very simple. Glass bowl on side in wRmish room with milk or water added depending on which you can eat. Then you leave it a set a,punt of time and then make more, if you go away you store the culture in the fridge

Delhaize? Well I never. Thanks CM!
@CCR: thank you. The suppliers of grains I found online don't deliver to BE. They will deliver a powder version but apparently this is an inferior product. Might give it a try though and will check out Delhaize in the meantime.

@CC_R: Hi, I'm loooking for Kefir grains and Kombucha scoby to make both at home. Can't find them here in Belgium. Did you say you make kombucha at home? Can you tell me where to get an scoby (do you share?) and also Kefir grains? The websites I find on the internet are all international shipping and I'm worried the grains/scoby will spoiled. Thank you!!
