Just tried a glass

I grew up on raw milk, buttermilk and cheese so I had to get this Buttermilk Starter Culture. I made a quart yesterday following the instructions. It fermented for 24 hours at 72°f and went in the fridge, two hours I poured a glass or should I say had trouble pouring a glass as it was thick as can be. Except for the missing bits of real butter in the buttermilk this was very good buttermilk. I did have to add about 40 grams of regular milk and mix it up to thin it out but this is great buttermilk, next batch I will use one packet in 2 quarts of milk or just ferment for 12 hours. Thank you cheesemaking.com
