Kefir grains?

Discussion in 'Cheese & Dairy' started by Hearts In Dixie, May 26, 2008.

  1. Hello all! I am looking for some kefir grains. My last grains didn't survive the dry freezer period. Does anyone have any extra to share? :help

    Thanks,
    Marla

    I don't have a problem. I ship them Priority Mail in cold milk. They are in kefir by the time they get to their destination. Have the person strain and add the grains to fresh milk to culture as usual.

  6. Patty did you get my check? I mailed it out on July 2. I have tried to email you a few times but haven't heard back from you. Is there a problem?

    I did not recieve a check . Have you checked your statement to see if it had been cashed ? Not sure about any emails ....maybe in my trash bin. I just come to this thread when Sara pm'd me ...wish you had done the same.


    With 2 teenages in the house anything can happen . I will check with them also.

  8. I am sorry if I caused a problem. I honestly didn't think to pm you. I emailed you and didn't get a response. I have been busy and just didn't think. I am sorry. I guess the check must have gotten lost in our wonderful mail system. My last bank statement shows the check has not been cashed. I didn't mean to imply anything.

    Thanks,
    marla

    I've all but stopped with my kefir grains. Last year I tossed probably 2-3 GALLONS of them! And that is not counting those I sold/gave away. It was too much work to keep them going for no reason. Do folks really need these? Is it seasonal? Since we don't sell our milk, maybe raising kefir grains would be an alternative to get some money. Thoughts?

    Trisha you could so sell your grains. I always have folks asking and since I give mine away I never have enough. I give mine away because it makes them purchase more milk :) I would love to have a name I could give out and know you will send them...just let me know how much and if you take paypal or checks....just don't ship the kefir until the checks clear. Your kefir was wonderful! Big fat guys. Vicki

    Do you store them in the fridge to slow down their growing....I find that works well. Mine have sat in the fridge for 6 months now waiting for the goats to kid and milk to flow. :)
