Agreed...there appears to be zero fat content in the coconut water that is sold at Costco, although it isn't cheap (I guess coconut water doesn't just grow on trees...har, har). Perhaps I will take a hydrometer reading to determine any mixture with H2O, although there are 15g of sugars per 11.1 oz container. There is even some calcium.

What yeast would be a good choice for such a project?

Shouldn't this ingredient suffice?
