Directions

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.

Yogurt starter culture sweet

I love how great this starter culture works for me. I drain the yogurt longer to make a more greek style yogurt. With other cultures this makes the yogurt a little to strong of a flavor for my tastes, but the sweet culture is perfect! There is no product that I can find anywhere that duplicates this flavor. I highly recommend this product if you too have a more sensitive palate to strong flavors.

Yogurt culture sweet

I’ve been eating, buying and making yogurt for many years, but this starter is so much better than any I’ve ever eaten. I make it out of lactaid free whole milk and fill two big instant pots with jars every week. This yogurt is so creamy and delicious there is no store bought yogurt that can even come close to the quality.

My Favourite

I'd tried a sampler packet of yogurt cultures way, way back (15 years ago-ish) and this one is the one I keep re-ordering. I love a thicker yogurt so I follow the instructions for holding at heat for extended period, and the flavour is always (consistently) wonderful without any additions. I like it with granola and my homemade low-sugar jam, with oatmeal, or straight out of the jar.
