Milk Kefir Grains
Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2014):
The grains arrived quickly. I was eager to start since I'm new to making kefir. When I opened my packet of milk kefir grains I was a little concerned because I didn't seem to have much there--like fine bread crumbs. I followed the instructions. It took about a week before I got drinkable kefir. The kefir is great but my concern is that after three weeks I still don't really see any grains. I use the strainer but it's basically to make sure I keep back about a tablespoon or so of kefir--assuming that the kefir grains are in that tablespoon. So, I'm not really sure if it's really the grains or just the kefir that's keeping each batch going. (I guess the grains have to be in there somewhere.) Either way, I've been getting great kefir but it would be nice to actually see the grains and know that I can keep them growing.
