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 5-7 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.

Best yogurt and starter culture!

I used this yogurt, in it's prepared form, to create the wonderful Canestrato Italian Basket cheese. It's was the tastiest cheese I've ever made, and I'll use it again, and I plan to use it in other cheese . It also makes the most devine yogurt, so make sure you make enough to eat!

My new favorite Yogurt

I just made my first batch and it came out excellent!!! It is in fact, as you mentioned, a bit more tart then your other Yogurt cultures, but I was looking for that and I'm really pleased. Thanks Veronica

Best creamiest yogurt!

Easy warm up milk (low fat) add culture, place in glass bowl, cover with plastic, place in a warm spot. 12 hours later voila excellent creamy tangy yogurt.

I loved it

It is now my go-to for yogurt cultures. I love the flavor especially when newly made combined with fruit. I have been able to store milk a long time by adding this culture to my goat's milk and making yogurt. It becomes more pungent as it ages but I find it is a great addition to cornbread to replace buttermilk. So far the milk has not become sour or ruined even though I've been storing it a couple of months.

Smooth texture without the tang

Super easy to make, this starter is very palatable with no tang. I love the velvety texture and use it in many recipes, although I enjoy it best with a drizzle of honey, fruit, and granola.
