Product Review (submitted on April 6, 2013):

I was looking for a yogurt that required no heating of milk or long incubation period, and when I saw this and remembered the taste of some Georgian yogurt I had a long time ago I thought to give it a try. I was a bit nervous because the first batch took a long time to culture (almost 48 hours), but when it finally set, it was a lovely, mild and soft yogurt, just as I remembered it. It's thinner and runnier than storebought yogurts, but has a very, very fresh and smooth taste--like one of the previous reviewers says, it's actually better on its own that with anything added. It recultures fast--second and subsequent batches only took 12 hours in a 70 degree room (I have a drafty kitchen so yogurt sits on a bookshelf in the living room). I use full-fat milk, mostly organic, but it works like a charm with plain non-rGB milk as well. Definitely recommending as it's a ton easier than any other method.
