Took a While to Get Going

This was my first culture from Cultures for Health, so there was definitely a learning curve. I followed the instructions on the packet, but the first culture went rancid before I could detect any indication of fermentation or tanginess of any sort happening. With the remaining packet, I left it out on the counter for 12 hours or so, but then moved it to the fridge even thought it didn't seem "ready". About an additional day in the fridge finally did the trick for me of starting a happy culture. I have been culturing piima now for a few months with no issues and use it for regular and coconut milk. It is a very loose yoghurt that is ideal for smoothies and bowls (makes a perfect smoothie without needing to add any more liquid to it). It has a clean taste. It also makes fantastic sour cream if you culture heavy cream with it. I find that my culture typically really doesn't set until it spends some time in the fridge no matter how long it stays at room temperature, so I recommend giving it time and checking on it later if you think it didn't work. It's what I was looking for it yoghurt, so I am giving it five stars despite its rocky start.


This culture makes when using fat-reduced milk a refreshing drink.
