Water kefir grains slowing down

Postby Annemieke on Sat Jun 24, 2017 4:55 am

Can my water kefir grains be tired? They look and smell the same as always, but now take more than twice as long to produce kefir: a week. The temperature has not changed: it is 22-28°C (75-82°F).
The outside temperature has risen greatly but the grains are kept in the airing cupboard so should not be affected by this, and they always have a thermometer by their side.
What’s going on?

my grains are slowing down as well after about a year or so. It takes longer but still makes good soda. What used to take 5 days total, now takes a week or so.
