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-worked really well!

I finally had a chance to try out my yogurt starter and it was great! Usually I just use a few tablespoons of plain yogurt for the starter. I mixed the little packet with a few tablespoons of milk and added when the Ninja told me to. I thought the yield was very high and no lumps. I don’t know why it is called “sweet” but the yogurt was very good. I received this starter free when I ordered so rennet and will try that out this weekend.

Wonderful culture

I make and sell yogurt using this culture. The final product is never too sour even if I get lazy and leave it culturing too long. The sweet ess makes the final product taste like custard. I love this mix.

Sweet Yogurt Culture

Makes fast and really nice sweet yogurt. It makes from dried milk too. I prefer using dried goat milk usually, but it makes great with whole cow's milk too. I'm a convert to this starter culture!!
