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.

Smooth and tasty
Easy to create healthy live yogurt at home with a great taste. Drain the whey to generate the consistency you desire. Remains fresh for days in the refrigerator. Excellent for baking, too.
Yummy easy yoghurt
Couldn’t be easier ! And tastes great
Best yogurt ever
I love the yogurt starter. We make a delicious goat milk yogurt! It turns out thick and perfect every time
A Little Disappointed
I don’t know if my expectations were just a little too high, but I am a little disappointed. I’ve made yogurt in years past simply using a store bought organic yogurt with live cultures, with varying degrees of success. Our family eats a lot of yogurt, so with rising prices everywhere, I decided it was worth going back to making it again. I was excited to try the NE Cheesemaking Company’s yogurt culture and was expecting to get better results. I followed the directions, using one packet for 2 quarts of milk, incubated about 8 hours, and it came out a little runnier than I expected. I even kept the temp of the milk up at 185 for a little longer as directed for a thicker yogurt. I don’t know if I need to use one packet per quart instead, but I have more culture and will try again for a firmer yogurt. Any suggestions for better results are welcome!
A great batch every time
I love this yogurt culture. I look forward to making raw milk yogurt every week, and this culture does not disappoint! I use raw milk heated to 185 and then cooled to 115, and let it incubate in a yogurt maker for 10 hours or more. Very pleasant taste, not bitter.
