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.

Yogurt Starter Culture (Sweet)

I use this culture to make a drinkable yogurt flavored with berry purée and a touch of honey. It has just enough tartness to be delicious, but it does not overwhelm the sweetness of the berries. It is easy and reliably tasty every time.

This is the best!

I don't like yogurt that's super tart but didn't realize there was another option until I tried this culture. It's just right, so now it's all I buy and I make it every week. I watch for bulk discount offers and buy massive amounts at once. You have to store it in the freezer anyway, so why not?

Yogurt review

Using the yogurt culture for goats milk- great taste, mine doesn’t thicken like commercial yogurt- I use it like a smoothie for breakfast, add a little honey or crushed fruit. Great way to start the day! Prompt shipping as ever!

Consistently delicious!

I searched for a new yogurt starter about six months ago. I needed to find one that wasn't too tart. I found your site, and zeroed in on the Y5 Sweet Yogurt Starter. I make yogurt every week either with cow's milk for my husband or goat's milk for me. I make batches a gallon at a time, and I'm never disappointed!
