Didn’t turn out

So I was so excited I found this as I’m now dairy free and I have always made yogurt in my instant pot. So last night I got some cashew milk (1/2g) one pack of this blended and set on yogurt this morning it’s very runny!!
I put in fridge hoping it would thicken..... ah not so much luck there 😞
It’s pricey to have it fail
I guess I will have to add pectin / gelatin to next batch and 🙏 it will turn out

Not sure what to do with the failed stuff⁉️⁉️
I will take any helpful suggestions

We're so sorry your first batch of vegan yogurt didn't quite turn out! Even if it doesn't thicken, you can put it in a blender with chia seeds, banana, etc. and create a thicker consistency. Plant-based milk doesn't necessarily thicken on its own, so please check out our article on thickening your homemade yogurt:

Please offer the starter in bulk!

I too make my own coconut milk from which to make yogurt, only I use 1 c coconut:4 c water. I have a non-electric maker in which one batch sat for 6 days before I could refrigerate it!! It survived! I do find that after 24 hours it's not tart enough to my liking, so I let it sit for 48 hours. I make the yogurt using the Pomona pectin, which I buy in bulk from Azure. I would like to second the idea of offering the starter in bulk; keeping track of your packet inventory is a pain. If you're having trouble getting this to succeed, keep trying! It's outstanding yogurt.

We're so glad to hear you're loving the Vegan Yogurt Starter! Great idea on selling it in bulk. In the meantime, keep an eye on on our newsletter for product promotions to allow you to save money while stocking up!
Total Newbie Here...

I haven't used this product and would Iove to try it but I only drink rice milk (vanilla & plain no sugar). Has anyone tried this yogurt culture using rice milk? Plus what is the best cost yogurt maker I can buy? I live on disibility income so something like an instant pot is out of the question. Plus rice milk is thin, what kind of thickene is recommended? Thank you ~Kelli

Rice milk yogurt is delicious! Here are some tasty ways to thicken your yogurt: And while we do carry an excellent yogurt maker, you don't absolutely need one!
Great Product
