    A friend gave me some water kefir grains, a few days ago(Sat). I was admiring it in the jar and the top popped off, kefir spilling all over the floor. So I picked what I found up, put it the back in jar with some water, sugar, and a few drops of milk. Two days later, it stinks, and it's not bubbling. Is it alive or a gonner?
    Thanks,
    Megan

    megan I really can't tell you but don't think you use sugar with kefir grains.
    I would take them out and rinse with water and then put in water or milk only and see what happens.
