My question would be: can I convert water kefir grains to milk kefir grains? How??
Other question: in 2 weeks I am going on holiday for 10 days, should I keep the grains in the fridge? I am afraid they are going to die :S
thank you as always x

I’m thinking of going that route as well for the same reasons. From my research, I found that you can’t use water kefir grains to make milk kefir. You will have to purchase new ones for that purpose. Milk kefir seems to be much easier make than water kefir with less ingredients and fermenting time To store kefir grains for a limited length of time, it’s recommended that you place the kefir grains in the fridge with water and sugar. Someone more to knowledgeable, please confirm this.
