  1. Wow...!

    Posted by Alana from MI on 19th Jun 2017

    I would give this yogurt starter 6 stars if I could. I've used many different starters over the years, but this one is the best. The yogurt's flavor is awesome; and it makes a thicker yogurt that sets up well even with raw milk that isn't raised above 115 degrees before the addition of the culture. This is important to me, because we want a raw-milk yogurt; and this is the best starter we've ever used. Thanks for making it available!

  2. A great culture

    Posted by Errol on 24th Mar 2017

    I have now made a couple of batches of yogurt with this culture. It makes some of the best yogurt I have ever tasted. It is creamy and smooth and fairly thick without going through the process of draining it. Well worth trying it.

  3. Good product

    I have used this culture before, and is the only one I use. It keeps well in the freezer, and I am still using a batch which is a couple of years old.

  4. The best yogurt ever

    Posted by Barb on 1st Dec 2014

    I have a milk cow and when she is milking I have a lot of milk to spare. some of my friends as leery about raw milk so I make yogurt for them, (because the milk gets pasteurized during the process). this culture has never failed me and makes a flavorful, not-too-tart, creamy yogurt.

  5. Best yogurt culture

    Posted by Sondra on 24th Sep 2014

    This yogurt culture makes a creamy, wonderful product that my customers love. Everyone says it is the best yogurt they have ever tasted. I make both regular and Greek yogurt (using the draining bags available here). When I ask my customers if they would like flavorings added to the yogurt, they tell it is so good that it doesn't need it, leave it like it is.
