What you have strained is Kefir ready for consumption or you can put it in the fried for later. Wash the jar then place the Kefir grains from the strainer back into the washed jar. ( Do not add Kefir grains to the jar which is hot from washing) Then add fresh milk. Milk kefir in a canning. The whole process is simply repeated for the next batch.
