Lessons from ME/CFS: Finding Meaning in the Suffering
If you're aware of my previous articles here at Phoenix Rising then it's pretty clear that I don't generally spend my time musing upon the philosophy of the disease. I find it better to spend my time reading research and trying my best to break it down to its core elements and write...

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks for the education re water kefir. What do you think of their effectiveness compared to milk-kefir grains? Just beginning to get into the kefir world.

    I have been on the kefir and although I am finally having nice stools. I am sick from it...I think. My intestine is throbbing.

    I've not made water kefir and what I know about it comes from here: WATER KEFIR a NON-DAIRY KEFIR. Because of its high alcohol content, water kefir would not be suitable for me.

    Several members on this forum have generously shared their milk-kefir grains.

    Another list that I would recommend is the International Kefir grain community list

    Finally found a kefir that is non-dairy! I can't even tolerate goat's milk. It is a (minimally) processed product though... SO Delicious Coconut Milk Kefir. It is unbelievably tasty and I've had no unpleasant effects at all.

    Brenda: Where can you get young coconut milk? Sounds like some interesting fermenting plans you've got! I'm trying to make a beet kvass but haven't found a whey I can use.

    Only downside I can see at all with this particular product is the price and how addictive it could be--this stuff is really delicious!

    Hi zoe

    You will have to google it as I don`t know who supplies in the US but there will be plenty of sources. I have ordered some cartons of young organic coconut milk but I could get some non organic young coconuts at Asian suppliers. I got some milk grains before I read that you can use special grains for coconut milk kefir. So I am all ready, that is if that grains I have got will work. They had better as the guy charged me a fortune for them!

    My understanding is that you can also use milk-kefir grains to make kefir out of nut and soy milks. I'm not sure if that works for coconut milk. You can read about it here.
