Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on January 20, 2014):
I bought a set of dehydrated milk kefir grains 4 months ago. I have been dutifully culturing them since they've arrived. And although I am indeed making kefir daily with organic milk (following all directions perfectly), the grains have yet to seem healthy and active. They have not multiplied, and in fact so many of the grains that arrived in my package were teeny tiny crumbs...By now most of those have disappeared through the strainer that came with my kit.
I've decided to order more grains from another site, for comparison sake. Maybe I just got a bad batch. This is a lovely website, but based on my experience, the quality of the product doesn't measure up.
For what it's worth, the sticker on the back of the dehydrated grains says "5500/196 best by 10/2014" - and the amount of grains inside the package was less than a teaspoon. Probably about a 1/4 teaspoon. Maybe I just got a lemon?
