    • Can I make yogurt with the kosher starter in almond or rice milk? Thank you.
    • Yes, the kosher starters may be used with alternative milks. You will likely need a thickening agent, as alternative milks can create a pretty thin yogurt. See this article for more information on thickening yogurt: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/thickening-homemade-yogurt/

    • What kind of yogurt starter can I use to make yogurt from RAW cow's milk? I want to use this without heating the milk, hence leaving the enzymes intact. Any suggestions please? Thanks, T
    • Any of our yogurt starters will work with raw milk. We have instructions on our website for making raw-milk yogurt with either mesophilic (countertop) cultures, or thermophilic cultures that need a certain level of heat. http://www.culturesforhealth.com/raw-milk-yogurt-video

Wonderfully Tangy Review by Ed

After using store-bought yogurt as a starter, I tried using Kosher style. It creates a tart, tangy and smooth taste.
