i have been purchasing way too much coconut kefir lately...$5 a bottle is breaking me. so i've been looking into making my own. does anybody here have any experience with making vegan kefir? i keep reading that after making a few batches of coconut kefir that the grains should be "recharged" in dairy milk. is that true? i definitely don't want to do that. also, where can i get the grains? and is it possible at all to get vegan grains? can this process actually be vegan at all? lots of questions..
i did find this though..
Dairy Free Option: While using Milk Kefir Grains is the most effective way to make Coconut Milk Kefir, there is a truly dairy-free option for those who cannot use Milk Kefir Grains. Add 1/4 cup Water Kefir (finished kefir, not the Water Kefir Grains) to 2-4 cups of Coconut Milk. Cover loosely and allow to culture for 24 hours.
