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.

It's the only One I Use

I make my yogurt with my goats milk. Some in the little jars for my husband, he has some almost every day. I make a gallon in my Instant Pot for making Cream Cheese which we use on our toast and for cheese cake. This has been the most dependable culture, never misses. Barbara, Sacramento, California

I found this starter years ago and have used it ever since. It makes perfect yogurt with just the taste we love.

Absolutely the best

I can't say enough good things about this starter culture! I originally used another company, and found that their cultures were insufficient and even expired when they came in. After ordering from New England Cheesemaking, I am absolutely never going back to another company! Every order is timely and fresh, and have produced amazing products. I recommend them to everyone.

Makes Sweet creamy yogurt

This is excellent starter culture. Easy to make yogurt that is sweet and creamy with just a slight tartness at the end (less if you culture for a shorter time 6-8 hours). Tastes similar to the yogurt I have eaten in Switzerland and Austria). I look forward to having it for breakfast with berries and muesli.
