Yogurt Starter Culture (Creamy)
A delicious, 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.

We love the yogurt cultures. I make yogurt for my 1 year old daughter and she can't get enough...add a little lemon zest to spice it up.
Nice thick creamy yougut!
Worked just as expected
The culture surely did its job. My yogurt turned out perfect. I used two packets of it for a gallon of whole milk, left it in the oven overnight with just the oven light on for warmth and the yogurt was perfect the next morning. I bought a second batch of cultures to hold me over for a few months.
This is our favorite starter culture for making Greek yogurt. We make a lot of yogurt in our house and this is always my go to for getting it done. We pretty much eat yogurt daily so I go through a lot of these packets with our goats milk. Thank you for all the great dependable starters.
This is our family's favorite!!!
