  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Put pasturized milk in a clean container. A container with a lid is useful, but you can use plastic wrap
  2. Blend the live yogurt mix into milk, set aside
  3. Heat water to 115 degrees in a pot that's deep enough to hold your container
  4. Add your container to the pot. You want the water level to come to about an inch below the container
  5. Keep at a constant heat (between 108 and 115 degrees F) for 4 hours +. The longer, the tangier. A heating pad, a warming tray, slow cooker, a pilot light (remember those!), even a beer cooler can work, but you'll have to add some warmer water every hour or so. Once you find the right heating source, you're home free
  6. I prepare it at night so it's ready in the morning, seven or eight hours is perfectly fine
  7. After 4 hours or so jiggle the container. The yogurt should be set, if not keep going for another hour and check. Refrigerate for a couple hours to firm up or just eat as is
  8. There may be some liquid (whey) on the top which you can drink, mix in or pour off
  9. Save a few tablespoons of the yogurt for the next batch
  10. Don't stir the yogurt mixture until it's set or you'll get sloppy yogurt
  11. TIP: To thicken just spoon cooled yogurt into a large tea strainer placed in a big tumbler, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate an hour. The whey will drain into the cup. You'll be left with a tangy, spreadable, creamy "yogurt cheese".
