Before you begin
- This recipe takes exactly 36 hours to ferment, so it's best to start either early morning or later in the evening. Otherwise, if you start at 3 in the afternoon, for example, you'll be having to get up 36 hours later at 3 am.
- Make sure the equipment you're using is able to maintain exactly 97°F – 100°F for 36 hours.
- Make sure you're using Ultra Pasturized milk or you can also heat the milk to 195ºF / 90ºC and hold it there for 10 minutes if you can't find UHT milk. Then cool it down in the fridge or freezer till it gets back down to 100°F before adding the starter.
- Check out the Frequently Asked Questions about this starter.
- Place in jars and cover lightly with plastic wrap or loose-fitting lids. Don't remove the lids during fermentation to avoid getting a discoloring of yellow or pink on the top of the yogurt. This is a harmless yeast that might affect the taste, so scrape it off the top of the yogurt before consuming it.
RECULTURING FROM A PREVIOUS BATCH
- To Reculture: To make a new batch, repeat these instructions, but use 2 tablespoons of a previous batch of your cultured dairy as your starter. If your first batch is separated into whey and curds, then you can use 1 tablespoon of the whey and 1 tablespoon of the curds to make a new batch that should have little or no separation.
