Natural Yeast in the Old Coconuts

Firstly, the reason why the oil does not separate from coconut milk is probably because you use young coconut to make coconut milk. The coconuts that you took was not old enough. That brings to the next one... Secondly, there is very little natural yeast available in young coconut. And it does not help that much to separate the oil from coconut milk. The old coconut has the more sufficient amount of yeast than the young one. That's why Peter recommends using old coconuts so that we can see the separated layers more clearly, and we can get the exact layer of the oil after leaving it for 24 to 48 hours. I don't know how easy it is for you to find the old coconuts in Ghana. But this is what it takes to this matter. Anyway, make sure you have the old coconuts (the big brown one) before starting out the process. Just my two cents :-) Happy with coconut oil homemade! Taweew at
