Sometimes the balance of the culture is upset. If your milk kefir is slimy and a little thicker than usual, it may be that your culture is a little stressed and needs to adapt to different living conditions. By carefully washing the tubers with lukewarm water and starting again, you can restore the balance. You don't need to rinse them for the next batch.
