I just received my first kefir grains from a friend and I have a few questions.<br><br>
What do you use to cover the jar while the kefir is fermenting? And after it is done and strained into another jar, what do you use to cover it?<br><br>
And, is it ok to blend kefir in the blender, to make smoothies and such? Or does that disrupt the bacteria?<br><br>
Thanks!

I just use a mason jar with a lid but I don't close it too tightly. And yes, I use a stick blender to make my smoothies. It won't harm the bacteria.

Mine's in a mason jar and covered with a cloth and a rubber band over it while it's fermenting. Once strained, it's in a mason jar with a lid in the fridge. To strain, I use a <a href="http://www.sproutpeople.com/devices/jar/jar.html#Anchor-23240" target="_blank">sprouting screen</a> lid for a mason jar. (the red one)<br><br>
I make my smoothies in a blender too.
