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 5-7 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.

Great yogurt!

I have been making this yogurt for about 9 months. It’s nice and thick with a great flavor. I wrap a heating pad around it to keep it warm until it’s ready to be refrigerated.

It's part of living well...

Excellent probiotic. Much much better than using commercial yogurts for culture. Makes great tasting yogurt that's healthier and considerably less expensive than store bought. Add a little quality honey and even people that don't usually like yogurt will probably eat yogurt made with Bulgarian probiotic from New England Cheese Making Supply.

Best yogurt ever

The first time we made this we were a little sceptical about how high the heat had to be, but followed directions. Within an hour we could tell it would be a success. The yogurt is at a great thickness and tastes wonderful. We have recultured it three times so far and it has always been a success.
