I'd like to try making some lacto fermented veggies. I don't do dairy anymore but make coconut yogurt. Is the strained 'whey' from that usable for lacto fermenting like dairy whey? Thanks!

What culture/starter are you using to make the coconut yogurt? If it's truly fermented, then the good bacteria in the yogurt would be in the whey and should work to make lacto-fermented veggies. You could also just add an extra pinch of sea salt to your ferments, instead of whey. I'd love to hear how it turns out!
