    Traveling this week. Do I do anything special to my grains at home? I plan to keep the thermostat at 75 and to keep the grains only, in a glass jar, wrapped with a coffee filter and rubber band on top.

    Just leave them in a glass or jar with a little milk. When you get back, discard the milk/whey in the jar. There’s no need to rinse the grains, and you might even find that they’ve multiplied!

    I went away for 8 days, and put them in a mix of milk and Greek yoghurt in a large glass jar in the fridge.

    They lasted well, and multiplied.

    If you leave them for much longer than 8 days (or if you don’t leave them with enough food), they might start to starve.
