The first batch of kefir, the whey had completely separated in less than 12 hrs. I halved the kefir grains, and made a good batch that took about 18 hours to make. This is my third batch. I'm using the exact same grains from the second batch. It's been 36 hours, and it still hasn't finished. We have no AC, and the highs around here have been in the low to middle 80s. It smells right, it's bubbly and thickening. It just isn't finished yet. Why is the time so long this time around?
