Best starter of all
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.
Yogurt Type 1 Starter
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.
Nice smooth texture.
