How to Store Yogurt and Yogurt Cultures
When you receive your freeze-dried yogurt starter, there is some time before it is necessary to activate it. Yogurt cultures last longest when stored in the freezer. Click here to find out How Long Cultures Last.
Once the starter has been activated, yogurt is generally good for eating up to 2 weeks, when stored in the refrigerator.
For re-culturing, we recommend using the yogurt within 7 days to make a new batch. If a longer break is necessary between batches, preserve some active cultures by freezing or drying. Neither method is completely reliable, but our customers report a fair amount of success with either.
Short Breaks, Up to 4 Weeks
Long Breaks, Up to 3 Months
