Use to make your own yogurt at home! A traditional Mesophilic yogurt starter.

With a mesophilic yogurt culture, there is no need to preheat the milk. The culture is simply added to cold milk and cultured at room temperature to produce beautiful homemade yogurt, without the use of a yogurt maker.

Produced in facilities where gluten and dairy are used.

To rehydrate your starter, add 1/4 tsp of starter (half the package) to 1/4 cup of milk. (The second half of your package can be stored in the freezer for long term storage) Cover with a lid and leave at room temperature for 24-48 hours. If it has thickened, move to the fridge. If it has not thickened after 48 hours, move to the fridge for a minimum of 8 hours.

To make yogurt, stir 1 tbsp of yogurt starter into 1 cup of milk or cream. Make larger batched by following this ratio.

Remember to keep a few tbsp of yogurt to start your next batch! A fresh batch of yogurt must be cultured every 10 days minimum to keep the culture happy and active.

If you used cream, you will get a thick, Greek style yogurt. You can also strain the yogurt through a cloth or coffee filter to make Greek yogurt.
