What I have noticed is they haven’t grown yet. Still, I see a teaspoon or less.
Anyway, they have produced 1/2 cup of Kefir in around 15 hours since yesterday night.
I don’t think milk ones grow very fast. Apparently the milk should coagulate within 24-hours if they’re “awake”. Make sure you don’t rinse the grains when you strain them either. It interferes with their growth and washes away the kefiran, supposedly the most beneficial part of kefir. Including a small amount of the fermented kefir in the fresh milk helps speed up fermentation too.
