I was brand new to kefir grains when I purchased these, but after following the directions (and I only used raw organic dairy milk), within one week, I had great quality kefir milk that separated into whey in the glass jar and smelled like yeast. The first few batches (which I used a baby food jar for) were the "readusting batches" and I threw those out, but I'm excited to keep these little grains healthy and strong.

Things I've learned from online forums:

1) NEVER wash your kefir grains.
2) Put the grains in room temperature milk, not cold, as this will shock them.
3) Give them fresh milk every day (even if you don't want any kefir right now, just give them enough to fill a babyfood jar). Think of them like a pet. You have to feed them every day or they will misbehave or even die.
4) If you are going to be gone for more than 2 days and can't change their milk, put them in the fridge. They can stay this way for up to a month. When you come back, it will take about 3-4 batches of baby food sized milk batches (just like when you got them), to revive them.
5) If you want to hibernate them, put them in a glass container in the freezer. They can store this way for up to 4 months. It can take up to two weeks to revive them after you take them back out.

Hope this helps! I would definitely recommend this brand and will be sharing my kefir grains with friends, family, and neighbors as they grow! Spread the love of kefir...

UPDATE 1/31/13

My kefir grains are thriving and doing fantastic! I share them all over our region and am happy to report that there are over 10 different families making kefir daily because of this one batch of kefir scobies. The work like clockwork. I even take them on vacation with me.

These grains grow and grow and grow. By the third day, I had too many grains for one morning drink. So what do you do with too many grains...eat them of course! I make one morning smoothie and just add the extra grains for extra probiotics. I use a mixture of raw goat milk and coconut milk. Definitely worth the purchase.

This is my second time buying from this seller. They deliver an excellent product!

When you first get your grains they are going to look *very* small and nothing like the picture. There isn't anything wrong with them, this is how they are shipped so they survive the journey. You will need to spend a couple days to a week "healing" them before they're actually able to produce drinkable kefir. The way I "heal" my grains when I first get them is I put the grains straight into about two to three ounces of milk for 24 hrs and change out their milk every 12-24 hrs for about a week. For that first week the milk barely changes at all, it will be very watery and won't really ferment much. But after a couple of days, you will notice a change in your grains as they start to get plumper and grow. As they do, you'll start noticing the milk gets a bit thicker. How quickly your grains heal, grow and ferment will depend on the temperature in your home. The warmer it is the faster they ferment and vice versa.

Once you get them going you will have kefir grains coming out your ears! I had jars and jars of them and had to find new homes for all the grains as I couldn't keep up! You can eat the grains as a way to keep their growth under control, it is a very cheap but potent probiotic "pill" if you will.

I've been making kefir for about two years now and here are some tips for anyone interested (the seller sends some excellent directions with their product as well)

I ordered these Kefir grains due to the excellent reviews written on Amazon. They were shipped from Kentucky to Idaho. I received what looked like a 1/4 teaspoon of a milky substance in a tiny zip lock bag, wrapped in bubble wrap. I immediately put them in a cup of cold pasteurized whole milk. It took 7 days and 3/4 gallon of milk to revive the grains. I knew they were starting to perk up when they no longer smelled like yeast but smelled like kefir. They continue to be fragile but are growing. I am now leaving the grains in the milk for 48 hours before straining, pouring the 48 hour kefir into a clean jar and leaving the jar on the counter top to ripen for another 12 hours. Finally, the kefir is thickening. I emailed the seller and he responded quickly, even refunding my payment. I also emailed the Kefir Lady who gave me some very good advise and told me to keep trying because the grains are resilient and it takes time for the grains to recover. I wanted to purchase more grains from her because she mails you 2+ tablespoons (so you don't have to wait so long to produce kefir but she told me to give these a chance. I now have 2 cups of pleasant smelling/tasting kefir in the refrigerator and another cup fermenting in the cupboard. The grains have multiplied but due to the very small amount supplied, I only have about 2 tablespoons. I'm sure in another week I'll have more than enough. The seller told me to drink only small amounts until my system acclimates to the bacteria which was good advise because my tummy was rumbling last evening after drinking 1/2 cup. It is strong stuff so he does not want you to make too much at first because it may tempt you to drink more than you should, turning your bowel into an underground volcano. I am satisfied with the quality of the kefir. I do wish I had been sent at least two teaspoons because it really took some TLC to revive these grains.
