Great products

I've been using this starter culture for about 6 months now (save some whey from your first batch and freeze it in an ice cube tray. When it's time to make more yogurt, use some of that.) I have started with fresh culture about 3 times, and we make a gallon's worth of milk into yogurt weekly. Very good quality starter, and much cheaper buying it direct from the manufacturer. Beware, though - I got 7 emails within 48 hours of going to the website and creating an account. Yes, I opted out of them, but how about inviting customers to opt IN in the first place?

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product

Nice and creamy with a bit of a tang.I am now up to 2 weeks worth of yogurt. Next I am going to make the vegan yogurt and home made mozzarella. Easy to make. I had so much fun doing it.

Creamy and sweet!

After following your directions my yogurt was a complete success the very first batch! It set up beautifully and was very mild and sweet. We like it for dessert topping for fresh fruits. Thanks for another wonderful product and for such speedy delivery!

Works even with A2 ultra pasteurized milk

Food allergies require I only consume A2 (vs A1) milk and there is currently no such thing as yogurt based on A2 milk. Likely because the A2 milk one can purchase in the US comes in ultra pasteurized form (no doubt to extend shelf life since it's not yet caught on in US). All yogurt recipes warn against using UP milk, even the instructions that come with this starter. Figuring what-the-heck, I spent big bucks on the fancy Cuisinart CYM-100 yogurt maker and went for it. Followed the Cultures For Health recipe exactly. It turned out perfectly. Wow. Definitely the best yogurt I've ever eaten in my life. Great flavor, great consistency. So for any of you that need to use UP milk, this starter works!!!!

Easy to use, great tasting

These direct set cultures are easy to use with consistent results. It's way more cost effective than buying yogurt from the stores.

I am going to try the Mild tasting culture next time.

It's unfortunate that they don't offer free shipping to Alaska though.
