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.

Excellent flavor

I love this yogurt culture, very good flavor and texture. I strain mine, and it makes a great smoothie, especially tasty with fruit and honey. I also love that it can be recultured, since I make yogurt by the gallon every week!

Just the best

I love this starter. It's not tangy, which I like. I wish I could find it somewhere in Canada since the dollar exchange and shipping makes this extremely costly for me, but it's the only starter I like.
