Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2014):
My kefir grains work just fine and produce okay kefir, though I honestly prefer the plain kind from the store. But I bought the "starting out with kefir" package set, which included the little plastic strainer, too. I wish I'd just bought the grains, because the strainer is too tiny to fit very much kefir at a time, so it makes the straining process more arduous than it should be. Also, I don't know if I am just abusing my grains, but they have never grown. So I see videos of how "easy" it is to strain kefir, but these people are using like popcorn-sized grains, and I'm trying to sort the miniscule rice-sized grains out of my kefir to keep for the next batch, wondering if maybe I should have bought fresh ones elsewhere! I use raw, whole cow's milk.
So they do their job, they make kefir, but it is kind of a pain in the rear, and I dread doing it every day. And my kids won't drink it because it doesn't taste like store-bought.
