I got my kit last Friday as well as the 2 live grains from Gavin. Gavin's grains are 20 years old so feel privileged to have been given some :) That's all that I have needed to make myself a full glass of kefir drink each night :)
The dehydrated grains that came with the kit are reconstituting very well. With the warm weather at the moment I don't even have to leave it in 48hrs... 24hrs seems plenty!
I got the boys to try some tonight and they want to try it again but not natural. They want flavour. Will try strawberries and mango to start with, I think. Will see how that goes for them...
I'm loving it as each smell and taste takes me back to my childhood in Austria :)
