Directions

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.

Tasty, Tasty Yogurt

I was pleasantly pleased with the yogurt culture. My first batch turned out thick and creamy. Taste was wonderful. Much better than what I was making using greek yogurt for a starter. Definitely recommend this company.

Awesome yogurt culture

Better than just using a few spoonfuls of the last yogurt. This one is perfect- not too sweet, not too tart.

Moo-velous!

Made yogurt for the first time using the sweet yogurt starter. It was easy and turned out great. I am never going back to store bought yogurt. Happy
