Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on July 1, 2014):
I was so looking forward to trying this new endeavor. I'm sure the fault was all mine (though I followed the directions as closely as I could), but I was never able to get kefir that tasted good. In fact, I would describe the taste as foul. I'm sure it was a case of user error, but I don't know what I could have done differently. I wound up throwing away the grains after a couple of weeks' worth of attempts (and quite a bit of wasted milk). I would recommend trying it, and I may again in the future because I would be delighted if I could make it work.
