Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on March 11, 2014):
I received my kefir grains on the day they were expected to arrive. They took about 4 days to rehydrate. They are VERY small and I strained the kefir through an unbleached coffee filter that I poked holes in with a toothpick. After a few days, I decided to try using my plastic colander, because using the coffee filter was taking a long time. Almost all of the grains went through the holes in the colander. We ordered a set of nylon mesh strainers through Amazon. The largest one is 5 inches. The other two are too small to use since you have to spread the kefir out to be able to see the grains. I would buy a 5 inch or 6 inch strainer. If you buy the set with the smaller ones, you probably won't use them. The grains are so much easier to separate from the kefir with the nylon mesh strainer. Order that when you order the grains and make your life easier. This is a good product and I would recommend it.
