Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on February 3, 2014):
I've had the grains for a couple of weeks now. They took about 4-5 days to start producing drinkable kefir. My kitchen isn't particularly warm, but the milk coagulates in less than 24 hours, often separating into curds and whey within 24 hours if I don't strain it before then. The grains haven't appeared to multiply that much since I started with them, and I use about 2 cups of milk at a time. They must really like my milk, because these guys are obviously little fermenting powerhouses in it. I had tried milk kefir with grains that I had received from another source, a couple of years ago. That kefir gave me digestive upset. With the grains from Cultures for Health I haven't experienced any of those digestive issues. Not sure if it's the grains or my digestive tract being in better shape now than it was, but I'm thankful to be able to expand my range of healthful fermented foods.
