Sorry for the confusion. Yes, I use water kefir grains. I was answering your question regarding Cultures for Health vs. Body Ecology. I was just giving my experience with Cultures for Health. 🙂
I did find this article from Cultures for Health on making coconut milk kefir with finished water kefir. Totally dairy free! I think I’m going to try it.
And Shayfo had an excellent suggestion about getting kefir grains from a friend. I could only find milk kefir grains, so no go for me. I know people list kefir grains on Craiglist too, so that may be an option for you.
