Halfway through my bottle (32 oz) I'm wondering-What happens if you drink too much? I'm just wondering if its going to have some unpleasant effects that I could avoid by not having it for a while-or if chowing down on it while I can find it is an ok thing to do? Its the unflavored, unsweetened kind, but it tastes so much better than yogurt (I'd never in a million years consider eating that much yogurt-hence my question...)

It is better for you, as there are many more of the beneficial bacteria in homemade than in storebought. Having said that, I don't think the storebought is a complete waste.
As for the OP, I'd have to say that bowel changes were the only differences we saw when we first added kefir to our diets. We had to take it slowly, working up from 1/4 cup per day to 2 cups or more every day, or we were dealing with multiple emergency restroom trips (for me and the kids). But now, I could probably down a quart or more per day and feel great!

And yes, I did mean diarrhea, not trips to the ER.
