Use Instructions

Heat 1-2 qts. 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 the 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.)
