Pro Tip Corner

The Greek Yogurt Starter Culture is an heirloom-style culture. Unlike direct-set starter cultures, which are single-use cultures (1 packet of starter can make 1 batch of yogurt), an heirloom culture is re-usable, meaning, that with the proper care, you can use it to make batch after batch of yogurt - indefinitely!

Expected better consistency

After several trials of adding quantities of yogurt starter, I eventually got a somewhat Greek yogurt consistency. It also seems a bit granny. The taste was good though.

not working

it did not work at all

Sometimes the first batch can turn out on the runny side, but be sure to reculture it using 2-3 tablespoons of your runny batch and your second one should turn out much better!
Best Greek yogurt I have made or tasted

I’ve been making Greek yogurt for years using Fage for starter. I decided to try the CFH Greek starter and just tasted the best batch of yogurt I’ve ever made.
My first 1 quart mother culture did not set as I was warned to expect. But my second one gallon batch was delicious, creamy and tangy.
I’ll see how long I can propagate this culture but so far I am delighted.

Mixed results

I wanted to try something different as I have been making the same yogurt for a couple years with a culture from a different brand. I made it up yesterday and ate some this morning. The yogurt without straining is very smooth but has an odd glue-y texture and no tang, no flavor. I was disappointed. I think part of the problem is that I also used a different milk, one that was ultra-pasteurized. I will try a second batch with my favorite milk from some happy Amish cows to see if that helps.

We're sorry your first batch of yogurt didn't quite turn out! It's very important to steer clear of ultra-pasteurized milk, so yes, switching milk should help a lot. Since this is a culture that is reusable indefinitely, it can take a couple batches to reach its peak, but then once it's firmly established, your yogurt will be perfect every time!
