Greek Yogurt Starter
Product Review (submitted on March 27, 2014):
This was my first time using a freeze-dried yogurt starter. Before I always started with store-bought yogurt and it was fine, but I wanted to branch out.
When I activated the culture it stayed as runny as milk after 11 hours and I was nervous and disappointed, but I read the FAQ and saw that this sometimes happens the first time. So I took some of that runny yogurt and made a new batch, and it came out WONDERFUL! Really thick, super rich and creamy tasting (I used organic whole milk). It almost tastes like I'm eating a decadent cream, not plain yogurt! I plan to keep using this culture as our everyday yogurt culture. I am also going to try straining it to make thicker Greek yogurt and I'm excited to see the results.
