Not a kefir expert BUT I read that it was ok to leave your grains for up to a week w/out changing the water if you were going away for a short period of time. I think the directions said you were supposed to leave them in the fridge though....but 72 hrs is nowhere near a week so I'd say your grains haven't been damaged. I'm pretty new at kefir'ing but I did experience a change in taste once...my grains had been growing in number and I wasn't aware of it so I think I had too many grains in too little fluid. Have your grains been multiplying? Maybe change the type of liquid for a couple of cycles? I alternate between coconut water and molasses and cane sugar.
Hope you get an answer from some of the kefir experts on this forum
