A sweet and creamy yogurt that is simple to make and wonderful to eat. Works very well with store-bought milk and goats milk.
For a Greek Style yogurt, simply drain your homemade yogurt, in two layers of Butter Muslin, for 1-2 hours.

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.

This yogurt starter makes fantastic creamy yogurt. After using this you will never go back to buying yogurt again. I use the whey for smoothies.
This was my first time making yogurt. It was creamey and delicious. I will get this culture again.
DELICIOUS and simple
This made some of the best yogurt I have ever eaten! I am fairly new to cheese and yogurt making and this was so simple and Oh So DELICIOUS!
Love this yogurt starter!
I just made my 1st batch of yogurt in my Instant Pot this Monday and it turned out absolutely fantastic! I was expecting a failure, as I'd never done it before, but we all love it (including my dogs!). I already am ready to make another batch in 2 days when I'm off work again. No sweetener needed, was perfect as it was... literally only milk, sweet starter, and a tsp of vanilla extract. I've already recommended it on my Instant Pot groups!!
Excellent yogurt culture
This culture is the best! Very creamy and really don't even need a sweetener.
