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.

Excellent for Goat Milk Yogurt
We've had mixed success making yogurt from fresh goat milk, always too runny. This culture produced a nice thick and creamy yogurt without straining.
This yogurt culture is my favorite, and I've been making yogurt a while. It is thin, more like the drinkable yogurt bottles at the store, but it does NOT NEED SWEETENER (unless you want variety), and I can't believe it but it just tastes good all by itself. If I run out and I need to refresh my culture I will definitely buy this again, and honestly, if I had to choose between creamy or sweet I would go sweet.
Reliable and Tasty
The Y3 starter makes delicious and creamy yogurt. Heat the milk, let it cool, add starter, pour into mason jars and let it set - you're done!
Easy to use tastes great
