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.

I made a batch of goat milk yogurt with this culture and I loved it. It was tender and delicious. I bought more for my next yogurt effort.
Culture arrived in Fla in a couple of days. Produced a smooth, creamy and tasty yogurt. I would recommend NECM Company to everyone. This wasn't my first purchase. I've made mozzarella, cream cheese, sourcream and cottage cheese with their products. They also provide sources for raw milk for your cats and pets.
Happy to see how it was packaged. Works as expected, but wish it came with instructions.
This makes a wonderfully tart yogurt. It also provides great flavor when used as an additional culture when making feta
I love this culture! I make yogurt all the time and this is my favorite kind. It comes out thick and tangy. I will definitely continue to use it.
