    LOL. I just pulled my kefir grain out of the fridge to get him started again and rinsed him off. The biggest one I've ever seen.

    I wonder what affects them. Any of y'all had them go flat?. This guy just seems to keep growing. He just drops off little bitty grain pieces.

    My kefir "blob" is like cottage cheese. Is it supposed to be one clump, like a sponge? It's a huge glob (in Vicki net) about the size of a tennis ball. When I used the fish net (Christy net) I used a rubber spatula to push things around so the kefir would strain. Did I mess it up?

    No, grains can be a global like Ashley's or cottage cheese like mine. Both are good :D

    I have goat milk now! Does anyone have keifer grains they'd like to sell or share? I figured I'd start with kefir and then go on to the cheese I've been wanting to make. Thanks
