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.

We have been making yogurt for over 17 years and this sweet and the creamy are our favorites! The directions are simple and it comes out thick and smooth. We even will reuse the culture a few times before using a new freezer kept culture.. Our miniature jersey milk makes it extra creamy too! All the products we have gotten from this company are amazing and work well! Thank you!
I’ve been making this yogurt for a couple of years now. The packets are always stocked up in my freezer and the yogurt it is always in my refrigerator. We eat it daily and I make it in gallon batches. I’ve never been disappointed and love the taste of it plain or with fruit. no sugar needed and nothing in the stores compares.
It was great! No sour after taste. Very easy to prepare and consistent results
I love my yogurt with this starter. The creamy is the one we like best. Good consistency.
This is lovely consistent stuff - I wasn't getting a consistent product when trying to reuse active yogurt - is worth the little bit of money to use a straight culture each time - I make lovely yogurt!! Anything I have bought from the website works very well. The cultures live in my freezer just fine.
