    "Happy Grains"
  1. Review by C B.
    Posted on 4/9/2017

    So far very happy grains. First step produced a lot of little hard black things amongst the grains and gray debris. Picked the debris out when I switched water for them. The debris reappeared in an hour or less in the next batch. Could find nothing about this from the Cultures for Health info on line. All pictures are pristine little grains. A warning that they do this might avoid anxiety for the first few batches. Otherwise they make a delicious drink. At first a sweet iodine flavor, then gradually a change to more neutral lightly sweet flavor easy to add other flavorings to. Very happy with the results. Am looking forward to experimenting with some videos from chefs as the grains multiply.
