Not as easy as it seems

I wanted to love this product and hoped it would help my stomach issues. Unfortunately, I didn't feel any different. Honestly, I don't even know if I made it correctly.

Maybe I got damaged grains

I often share my excess grains with friends and family, but I recently had none to give when my mom asked for some. I got my starter grains from this exact kit, purchased off the company’s website, and they have been going strong for years. I’ve also started a couple kits for friends. I figured I’d order some here (save a few bucks) and get them hydrated and ready for my mom. I have not gotten any fermentation after 5 batches. I hydrated them according to instructions and use only spring water. I’ve also been using a heating mat to maintain water temp. I did not have this issue with my grains in the past, so I can’t understand the problem. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I’m bummed I wasted my time and $$$, and my mom still doesn’t have what she needs to produce her own water kefir.

I tried but I don’t think I did it well. I finally threw them out but I wouldn’t mind trying again with better instructions

I’ve used this twice. The first time the grains only worked a few batches, the second one never worked.
