The nice thing with making kefir is that you choose the time of day that you start it and change it the same time everyday. I was a little intimidate too, but you’ll see it’s one of the easiest things to do. My problem is that I’m having problems consuming it all. I put a batch of grains in the freezer only to read later that I did it wrong. I don’t know whether they’re spoiled or not, I haven’t checked.
Take a try! If it’s too much for you, than at least you tried.
ps. Another vain. I’m not nearly as busy as you, so I do have time. Raising 4 kids, I can somewhat understand. Hope you get your answer soon.
How did you freeze your grains? If you just froze them without the milk, if you have a fast freezer they might be fine still. They are tougher than we think, even though I had them go bad for no reason (twice in my life so not that much of a chance of that happening, but still this is the reason I always save a batch for backup), and I know that metal can hurt it.
Hope they are still fine. Best would be to pull them out and try. If they are good, just put them back, or freeze a fresh batch.
