Heat 1-4 quarts of milk to 185¬ļF, then cool to 112¬ļF. 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.

Very pleasant taste

This is a very pleasant yogurt: not sour and nice and thick. I made it with goats milk, I held it at the high temperature for about 45 mins, and then cultured for 5 hours at 115F. I’m very pleased with it.

Excellent cream cheese culture

As a novice cheese maker it is really good when things work out, in spite of myself. This culture,with a few ingredients and time and I had 2 pounds of wonderful cream cheese. It was excellent by all accounts!

Perfect Yogurt

I have made homemade yogurt for years. Just finished making & eating my first batch with this culture. Enjoyed very much the creamy, sweet undertones of this yogurt. It was delicious. Definitely recommend!

Amazing culture to make 1 gallon in INSTANT POT!

I have the sweet and creamy cultures and love them both. We can't decide our favorite yet, so we keep alternating back and forth. It's so easy to make yogurt in your instant pot even! -Pour 1 gallon of milk in instant pot and put on glass lid -Hit yogurt: boil -It will beep after it's been brought to 180*. Let it stay hot at least 20 min before bringing it down to 110* for thicker yogurt. I personally just change the lid for a cloth and let it slowly come down over several hours...that way I don't have to mess with ice bath, etc. -Add culture, let sit 2 min and then stir. Replace lid -Hit yogurt: normal, 12 hours -next morning you have yogurt! Chill completely -If you want to strain you can use cheese cloth or we have a 1 gallon yogurt strainer which makes it easy and and the container can sit in the fridge
