Water kefir (kefir d'aqua) and coconut kefir are both made with water-kefir grains, which are different from milk-kefir grains.
They have an opaque texture in comparison to traditional milk kefir-grains of Caucasus. The grains are firm, transparent and fragile; they easily break apart with little applied force. Water-kefir grains are not gel-like or slimy in consistency to milk kefir-grains nor are they white in colour.
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.

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.
