I used coconut milk that I make with dried, shredded coconut (1 cup) and 5 cups of filtered water blended for 2 minutes and then strained.
I made Finished Water Kefir, using about 1/3 cup finished water kefir and about 3 cups of coconut milk.
Here's what it looks like within an hour of mixing:
I mixed it up again.
And now I need to wait until tomorrow to see if this works...
So, after 24 hours, here's the kefir. Looks like a science experiment, right?
|After I mixed it up and poured it into a glass.|

I have been using the same water kefir grains for about 3 years, but they have been weakening for a while, so I bought milk kefir grains about a month ago, converted them, and now things are really active. We can even hear the fermentation happening with a slight fizzing sound while it's working, and the grains rise and fall in the panela/egg shell/filtered water solution as we watch. Very interesting!
I have always enjoyed the science behind food preparation, so I have lots of "experiments" happening at any given time, which I'll post as I can.
Have a beautiful day!
