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.

consistently wonderful yogurt

this is my favorite yogurt culture -- yields a sweet, yet slightly tangy yogurt. I make yogurt every week and the results are consistent, whether I use my EuroCuisine for individual jars or Yogotherm for a large batch (which I drain a bit and then portion into jars). Love this product, so glad I found it!

Nice Low Acidity Yougurt

Have only used as a primary starter so far, but hope subsequent passages will turn out as nice as the initial culture did. And you get 5 packets, so it's a great value.

Love, love, love this Sweet Yoghurt culture

We've been making yoghurt for years since my husband learned how in France in 1975. I recently found that I can purchase raw unpasteurized whole milk from a local dairy farmer. He shared NECM with me and I am totally loving this culture! Our yoghurt set up is not the fanciest, but an old plastic bin with a polar fleece blanket gets the job done every time. I make the yoghurt in the evening and set the bucket on the counter. In the morning every jar is set up perfectly. It is my go-to breakfast several times a week, topped with homemade granola with raisins, walnuts and black cap raspberries from our garden. This is my happy breakfast!
