All cultures are sent in a dehydrated state. This can make it seem like the culture you have ordered is very small. However, with activation and rehydration, they will be able to culture according to the directions that came with the culture.
Some cultures, such as our Milk Kefir Grains, require a very small amount to effectively culture the intended medium. Other cultures are measured by activity level rather than volume. Rest assured that the amount of culture you receive is guaranteed to culture according to the package directions.
If you have any questions about how much culture you should be using, refer to the instructions that were included with your starter culture, or use the Submit a request button to send us a message.
