Product Review (submitted on July 11, 2014):

I make yogurt a lot (on the GAPS diet) and I hated spending $6-7 every third batch for starter. Since GAPS requires 24 hour fermentation, I had to be a little creative. When I make yogurt, I heat about 4-1/4 cups of milk, cool and add my yogurt. Then I pour most of it into a quart jar and the last 1/4 cup into a tiny jar. I fit both jars in my yogurt maker (a Yogourmet half gallon sized one) and fill up with warm water. After about 6 hours, I take out the little jar to use as next week's starter, and let the large jar "cook" for the remaining 18 hours. This has worked great!

The flavor is very nice, although not as tangy as the one-time starter even after 24 hours. My husband definitely prefers it to the Yogourmet.
