Hey, I have kefir, and I think I have a grain the broke off of my gigantic one.LMonty said:I tried kefir once a few years ago. But each time it brewed, it was really bitter and what I thought was almost moldy tasting. I really like yogurt, but this wasnt anything like the pleasant clean acidity of yogurt, even homemede. I figured it was something I didnt like. I did like the commercial kefir that was on the store shelves for awhile years back, which is why i tried to make my own. But even flavored and sweetened, this stuff was unpleasant.
Everyone here is so enthusiastic about it, I'm beginning to wonder if I was doing it wrong or could I have had bad grains? It took about 3 days to thicken the milk, not one like I'm reading in the directions here. Should I try it again?
