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 make a batch of this every week. We love it. My favorite is yogurt with a little maple syrup, blueberries, and a sprinkle of homemade granola. Yum! I also mix it in my dog’s food to keep her healthy, too.
A great yogurt starter. I am new to making yogurt, and was looking for a good yogurt starter. I came across this starter and noticed the supplier was from Massachusetts, which is where I am from. I thought transit time would be at a minimum. The price was excellent, and decided to go with the Sweet Yogurt Starter. I made my first batch about a week after receiving them. It came out delicious and was the perfect consistency. I am very happy with this product and I hope to do continued business with you for a long time. I hope Covid hasn't affected your business to much. I hope you plan to stay in business for many more years. Thank you very much, Dave P.
It came out great!
Though I’d been making yogurt on and off for 50 years, following what my mom did before that, I just figured you picked the yogurt you liked best in the store for a culture, not understanding how it changed over successive batches eventually producing poor results. This culture, though not the heirloom type, makes my favorite sort every time as long as I am consistent in the process. I usually use two packets (they come 5 to an envelope ) for a gallon, but I have used just one with just as good results just needing a bit more time. I really should try some of the other varieties here, but it is hard to break from something I like so much.
Effective culture with simple directions. Made beautiful and smooth yogurt!
