A delicious, creamy yogurt that is simple to make and wonderful to eat. Works very well with store-bought or goats milk.
CULTURE INCLUDES: Lactose, milk, streptococcus thermophilus, lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, autolyzed yeast.
YIELD: Each packet will set up to 2 quarts of milk.
DIRECTIONS: Heat 1-2qts. milk to 180ºF and cool to 116ºF. Pour into a thermos-like container (or Yogotherm). Add 1 packet starter culture and mix well. Cover and let set at 116ºF for 6-12 hours or until thickened to desired consistency. For a thicker product, add 1/4 cup of dry milk powder prior to adding your culture.
NOTE: Yogurt is very simple to make using our Yogotherm (in our Gourmet Home Dairy Kit). If you are interested in a Greek Style yogurt simply take your finished product and drain it for 2 hours in 2 layers of our Butter Muslin cloth. (You can use the clear whey on top for soup stocks or in baking.)
STORAGE: Keep packages in the freezer, they will last up to 2 years.
For use with the Gourmet Home Dairy Kit. DS means Direct Set, which means they cannot be recultured. Good for 2 years if kept in the freezer. This culture will die in temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Please make sure that when the package arrives it does not sit in a hot place for an extended period of time.
