Heat 1-4 quarts of milk to 185ºF, then cool to 112ºF. Pour milk into a yogurt maker or large container. Add yogurt culture and mix well. Let the milk incubate for 5-12 hours or until the yogurt has thickened to desired consistency.

For a thicker yogurt, before heating add 3 tablespoons milk powder for each quart of milk.

Note: If you don't have a yogurt maker, simply wrap your covered container in a blanket or towel to keep the milk warm while incubating.

Re-culturing: Instead of adding yogurt culture, add approximately 1 tablespoon of prepared yogurt, per quart of milk.

Re-culture every 7-10 days to keep the yogurt bacteria healthy and active.

After multiple rounds of re-culturing, your yogurt may not fully set the milk. At this point, start the process over with a fresh yogurt culture.

Happy purchase

I have made my second batch, using some of the first batch as the starter. It took a bit longer to set, but it’s tasty yogurt! I will purchase from New England Cheesemaking again.

Amazing Yogurt

After having made do with using cultures from store bought yogurts I was happily surprised with how much creamier and thicker this culture produced.After 4-6 hours of draining through the butter muslin this made perfect yogurt.

Thick and Delicious Yogurt every time

I buy this creamy starter and the sweet starter and I ALWAYS get thick and creamy yogurt, nearly as thick as Greek yogurt and I don't strain it. I use Fairlife 2% or whole milk, 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 packet of the starter and make it in my Instant Pot with the Yogurt Setting for 8 to 8-1/2 hours. The starter keeps over a year in the freezer. I don't bother trying any other starter.

first time yogurt maker

This was my first time making yogurt with your product. I made one batch in a slow cooker and also made a batch in an instant pot I. Thank you for having such an easy way of doing it, this is what I will use every time. I used fresh milk from jersey cow mmmmm good.

I've been making yogurt for many years (buying a yogurt starter from the store) but this is the best ever. Is really very creamy. I used 2% milk and add a couple of spoons of dry milk (because I like it thick). The texture is great. I prefer this to buying a yogurt in the store for making yogurt, as you leave it in the freezer and is ready to go whenever. Yummy!
