How to Make Direct-Set Raw Milk Yogurt
When using raw milk to make yogurt, there are several factors to consider. Once you've decided to use raw milk, however, the easiest culture to use with raw milk is a single-use, or direct-set, starter culture.
Direct-set yogurt cultures are one-time-use cultures. Either one of the following can be used as the starter culture:
A packet of freeze-dried powder that is stored in the freezer and used to inoculate each batch OR
A small amount of yogurt from the store. If using store-bought yogurt as starter, be sure to use an unflavored variety that is labeled "contains live active cultures."
