Kefir grains needed urgently!
« on: April 26, 2016, 12:51:36 PM »

HELP! My Kefir grains have become contaminated and I've had to throw them away (some 'nasty' has got in there and they've turned a disgusting smell - not good)  spf:-(

In the absence of Tommo - who seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth (I hope he's OK) I'm stumped. I've tried sending him PMs, e-mails & phoned him, but nothing. He's the main man for Kefir grains on here, so in his absence can ANYONE help me out please?

If you've got some to spare, can you PM me & I'll give you my address - I'll pay for the postage. Thanks  ThU5:-)

Having come, eventually, to the rescue...how are the new grains coming on? I can separate again if you need me to.

Funny you should mention it Tommo. The last lot you sent me got snaffled by No.3 son! He's suddenly gone into fermented foods in a big way, and his eyes lit up when he saw my shiny new grains, so being the big hearted dad that I am - I gave him he ones you sent me, after extracting a promise at he would pay me back when he split that batch - haven't got them yet though  spf:-(

Children will always be children won't they? So I'm getting a gut feeling that it was a case of sometime this side of never! Not that I'm an Indian Giver, but now I'm still 'kefirless'. So a few grains more wouldn't go amiss Pappa Tommo!

Thanks mate  ThU5:-)

Yep, all packed up in one of the famous little white Jiffy bags & ready for posting Tuesday morning. They should fly past each other sometime on Tuesday evening!

Thanks ol' friend!  :-)=
