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.

I already shared a review weeks ago and I keep getting pressured for more, even though I only ever purchased ONE item.

Yogurt Starter Culture (Creamy)

I have to say this is the best tasting yogurt I’ve ever made. This was my first time trying it but it will not be my last. I am hooked!!!!!!! If you want a creamy slightly sweet tasting yogurt then you should try this one.

Awesome yogurt culture

This culture makes a wonderful creamy, thick yogurt with a nice tang. I use whole milk and drain for a couple of hours after about a 7 hour ripening time.

Easy and consistently successful. It is a mild enough flavor that my daughter, who is avoiding sugar right now, enjoys it plain!

I love this starter culture!

I’ve been making yogurt in my Instant Pot for several years now, but have found this starter perfect for flavor and texture, after using various high=end commercial yogurts as starters, too. My yogurt-loving hubbie thinks this tastes the best.
