Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on February 26, 2014):
The grains are fine-but I think a bit pricy. My Dr. recommended I make this-was told the grains were $12-but came to almost $24 with shipping! This has been a new experience. I had to buy a new strainer as I didn't know if mine was stainless steel-only acceptable one I could find was $9.00-& it was hard to find in my area! Had a hard time finding organic milk that wasn't ultra pasteurized. My husband came home excited to find some-BUT it wasn't organic-so add on the price of the non organic and the organic once we found it-half gallons each. I made the coconut milk version and it is very good but I can only have a Tablespoon a day to start. I have 2 batches made and am not really sure what I should be doing with the grains. I saved a little liquid from the kefir & have them in that in the refrigerator! At this point I think it would have been easier for me to stick with the store bought but maybe it will get better when I can eat more of it.
