Excellent experience with easy to use yogurt culture. Yogurt came out perfect. Will use this again for sure.
This culture makes fine yogurt, but be aware that it is quite tart. If this isn't what you like, try either the sweet or creamy cultures. Also, you have to measure it (that is, it doesn't come in pre-measured packets).
I've tried all the yogurt starters sold by New England Cheese Making Supply and this is the best so far. I had been using the creamy starter and inoculating each new batch with some of the last batch. The flavor eventually was too sharp so I decided to give this culture a try. I haven't tried inoculating with a starter from the last batch since it takes so little of the package for a half gallon of milk. I make it in the instant pot and have to let it culture for 12 hours. The creamy would culture in less time (6 to 8 hours). Nevertheless, this has better taste and comes out smooth each time. I drain the yogurt to make Greek style. I'll update after I try culturing with the last batch.
This set up more quickly than others I have used, drained well and makes for a nice thick Greek style yogurt.
I had used this starter for years. I got tired of yogurt and and quit making it for years. When I got an instant pot I started again but used store bought yogurt for the starter. The yogurt was good but really lumpy and I had to whip it to get a good consistency. Then I remembered the starters I used before. I bought a bunch of these. The yogurt comes out smooth and I like the taste much better. The bonus is I keep them in the freezer. I never have to run to the store to buy yogurt to make yogurt. I highly recommend this starter. Great yogurt every time.
