You are bidding on Freshly Dried Active Milk Kefir Grains, 2tsp dried (which equals 2 T of wet kefir grains)

I make my own kefir and dry my excess grains with a non-heat fan at room temperature, wrap and seal and store in the refrigerator where they keep for a year or longer. These are freshly dried in the last two months and are very active when reconstituted, but will STILL TAKE 3-5 DAYS for the taste of the kefir to be balanced. You can see the fermentation in the 2nd day, but the taste is a bit off until day 3 or 4.

I send written instructions on how to reconstitute them and also illustrated instructions for making kefir. Both are quite easy.

These active kefir grains grow fast and become more and more.

If you have any questions now or after you begin you can always email me.

These dried grains are perfect for travel or vacations or to mail to someone. They are also great as a back up supply. You can use half and keep half in fridge.

I love my kefir grains and whip up lots of frozen fruit desserts in a blender.
I also separate and use the protein whey, so healthy.
I make kefir soft cheese and also dry that to make other cheeses.
Its a living food, great for many uses and fun to experiment with.

Once fully active, 2 T wet kefir grains are enough to ferment 2 quarts milk. (1/2 gal) This also depends on temperature.

Kefir has many more strains of beneficial probiotic bacteria than yogurt, it is very different. It also has enzymes and yeasts for an incredible whole-body health care system.
