I looked at the sticky Kefir post (looks like it has awesome recipes), but I still am unsure about how to get started buying kefir grains (they look like cauliflower?). Can I get the kefir grains from my healthfood store? I saw there is some kind of database for kefir grains online! Is there something different then about those kefir grains from what I can get at the store? Thanks for any clarification.

Since writing this, I looked at the big kefir post more closely and understand that the grains are different. Now I'm just trying to find someone to share kefir grains!

You've got mail. I 'pm'd you with the info for getting your own grains. Sorry I didn't see this sooner, I've been 'awol' from my computer with summer fun, and busy new projects.

Summertime, I know my kefir grains are going like crazy!

I'm sure that if you asked almost anyone with grains they would be more then happy to share the wealth.

I'd be interested in some grains too! I've been buying ready made kefir from my local healthfood store, but thats getting expensive,and I'd love to make my own.

Anyone willing to share with an infrequent poster but almost daily lurker?

i've got paypal

Anyone have water AND milk/dairy (not sure of the right term) grains available? I'm willing to pay!

I'd also love to buy some grains and have paypal if that would make things easier.

Peace,
