What Our Customers Are Saying
A great yogurt for anyone. Not too tart or too runny. I had made this yogurt for about 6 years from the original starter, but I accidentally got it to hot and killed it. I recently bought new and it is happily making batches of great tasting yogurt. Customer service is very helpful talking you through the activation process.
Love the tart flavor to this. No more commercial made yogurt for me. Love the heirloom part of this so I always have culture ready for the next batch of yogurt to be made.
This Bulgarian starter is amazingly delicious and easy to culture. My first batch did not thicken super well but that was expected for the starter. The second batch was beautiful and firm. Worked within about 4 hours. I used a nice little yogurt maker and followed the directions verbatim. I recommend this starter for newbies and the taste is just wonderful. Not too tart, creamy and good.
I ordered the Bulgarian yogurt culture because the description said it was mild and creamy, and they weren't kidding! I've made about half a dozen batches now, and after culturing I strain to remove extra whey. The end product is so creamy and delicious it's hard to stop eating!
The Bulgarian yogurt starter culture was a great first yogurt culture. It’s mild and and sets well. I’ve made 1 quart, 2 quarts, and full gallon batches and it works perfect rack week. I culture it a little longer and it gets quite a bit tangy. I also strain my yogurt over night and add back just enough whey to get a smooth velvety texture. With a little honey and vanilla, it’s a house favorite.
My favorite yogurt!
Having made yogurt at home for a few years using nothing but retail top name brand yogurts like Dannon, Fage, Verka (really good, btw), I was curious to find out what if any significant differences I might find in terms of taste, those coming from either direct set (store) or heirloom cultures with the latter being this Bulgarian variety. In short, after the first three or so uses of a direct set starters, the flavor qualities tended to lesson which I hear is to be expected. That said however, the first two batches made from a top name brand like Fage tasted super-good!
What's very pleasantly surprising about these heirloom cultures with the Bulgarian mentioned here being my first taste are the unique flavor qualities that are present batch after batch. I guess that how it's supposed to work; like Duh, right? Also, speaking of taste, this particular Bulgarian culture packs a lot of punch in terms of taste which says a lot considering there absolutely no additives, just whole milk and these wonderful little bugs. I'm in!
It is good only after the second batch, so be patient.
Like another review, this is my 2nd time buying this culture after killing the first one after about 5 or 6 years (entirely my fault). Tastes great, is easy to get started, and easy to keep going.
