Yes, actually I got mine from Ebay. Just make sure you buy milk kefir grains, not water kefir grains.
I know some on here use the greek yogurt as a starter, I do not. I don't follow SCD but do like to make the SCD yogurt, so even though sometimes I have consumed the greek stonyfield yogurt, I do not use that as my starter. I have used vsl3 or plain dannon yogurt. The plain dannon yogurt is my favorite starter. I don't think because it is tart that there is less lactose. My understanding is that almost all commercial yogurt still has some lactose because they only cook it long enough to make yogurt, 4-6 hrs. It is probably tart because the only sugar in it, is the lactose, natural sugar in milk. Most store yogurt if not plain has at least a teaspoon of added sugar or artificial sweetner.
