View Full Version : Anyone making coconut kefir?
09-21-2006, 10:31 PM
I have been doing some research on coconut and nut mylk kefir.... Anyone have any experience? (I have been fighting Candita)
Here is one that I ran across:
Coconut Kefir Link (http://www.bodyecologydiet.com/mcoconutkefir.php)
I used to make it quite a bit out of fresh goat's milk but have not tried coconut or nuts.
Any comments would be great!

I had been meaning to but accidentally froze my kefir grains when the freezer got the top part of the little fridge I kept them in too cold and I don't have any more grains at present.
I was actually going to also try water kefir, I don't know if you're familiar with that...but again, my procrastination took over.
I can't try until I get more grains, and I probably won't for a couple months or so as everything is topsy turvy here for me at present. If you try, please post and let me know how it turned out! And if I get straight and go ahead and get the grains and do it, I'll do the same!

MongoMango : Just a note for reference, I keep all my yoghurt, cheese and kefir cultures in the freezer. That is what most Cheese Cos. recommend. I used to make lots and lots of cheeses and such with no problems.
I only have the starter now, but the grains are really neat since the last forever, (until you forget about them.....oops)
One of the cheaper places to purchase them is at hoeggergoatsupply.com.
Is there some information on kefir made from water? Does the culture need a food source?

My understanding is that kefir isn't vegan. Something about the source of the grains. Is that right?

No one knows the source of the grains. LOL, It is shrouded in mystery, as much of the past. But it is non-vegan only when it's cultured in milk. Well, if one view probiotics as non vegan, then I guess it would be non vegan.
Here is a link to kefir site that will give information on water and nutmilk kefir..or at least it used to. I took a minute looking at it and it does have info, but he used to sell the water kefir grains and it appears..from my very quick look..that he no longer does.
