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 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.
- When done, remove jars from the appliance, keep the lids loosely on jars, and refrigerate. If you tighten your lids while the yogurt is still warm, it may build up pressure and cause your glass jars to break. Once the yogurt has chilled in the fridge, then you can tighten the lids. This will keep in the fridge for up to 4-6 weeks.
Reculturing – Again
- To Reculture: To make more batches, repeat these instructions, but use 2 tablespoons of a previous batch of your cultured dairy as your starter for every quart you want to make. 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. You also should use two tablespoons of Prebio Plus for every quart when reculturing.
Make a Double Batch: You can double the ingredients to make a larger batch!
- Use 2 quarts of ultra pasturized milk, 4 tbsp of l reuteri yogurt as a starter, and 4 tbsp of Prebio Plus. Ferment at the same time and temperature. 100 F° for 36 hours.
