A few minutes each day will make the process simple and produce a superior product. Healthy and probiotic, Kefir is an excellent supplement to your diet. When you receive your fresh Kefir grains, you will want to revive them by feeding them 1 cup of whole or 2% milk, allowing them to ferment the milk at room temperature(70-80f). After 24 hours, feel them by adding a second cup of milk. This process will allow the grains to revive and grow. By the 3rd or 4th day using a third or fourth cup of milk, this little batch of starter Kefir can be used to ferment a larger amount of milk. Start with one quart(liter) of milk, and add the starter Kefir to it. Check your Kefir in 12 hours. If your Kefir is watery and you notice a separation of the grains/milk solids and whey(watery liquid), the ferment was too long. Add more milk, stir and allow another 8-10 hours. When the Kefir has a creamy texture and smooth, it is ready to consume. When the Kefir has a creamy texture and smooth, it is ready to consume. You will want to now strain the Kefir from the grains using thin mesh cheese cloth or a colander with tiny holes. You don’t want to lose the very small Kefir grains down the drain. Homemade Kefir will be thinner than store bought and may need to be strained to produce a thick product. Additives or thickeners are sometimes added to commercial Kefir to thicken it. A rubber band and cheese cloth is included. Milk Kefir grains can be used to make water Kefir. Kefir Recipe.

Basically good but confusing directions
Posted by Michael Cleveland on 19th Aug 2016
The initial email about how to use the product indicated one could drink the first batch, but the booklet instructions indicate no. I'm still confused. Which is it?
And when you end up with a multitude of grains, do you then divide them into two or more batches? Confusing.
Note from Steve/thecheesemaker.com: Thanks Michael for your input. We've tweaked the recipe/protocol and added additional information which will help even more to make fresh Kefir using the Fresh Kefir Grains.
