  • Bifidobacterium lactis Lactobacillus casei


Make Yogurt easily with our DELUXE YOGOTHERM YOGURT MAKING KIT  ; You can also use your Insta-Pot to make yogurt!

Home Yogurt Makers: 
this packet will make approximately 100 one gallon batches of yogurt.
Usage rate:  1/16 teaspoon for 1/2 gallon of milk,   or 1/8 tsp for 1-2 gal. 3.78(l) of milk. 
Heat the milk to 180F and let stay at that temp for about 5-10 minutes.  Allow to cool to 105-108F (you can expedite cooling with an ice bath)
Using a dry sanitized small spoon, remove the culture and distribute onto the warmed milk to inoculate at 105F - 108F.
Let the culture dissolve for a couple of minutes, then gently stir in to the warm milk.  Allow milk to incubate at approx 105F for 8 hours. 
(You can go longer if you want a more tart yogurt).   
Pour gently into a colander lined with cheesecloth, or better yet, a Nylon Draining Bag.
Set the colander into a larger bowl so whey drains into the larger bowl; cover with plastic wrap and allow to drain for about 8-10 hours in your refrigerator.
Longer draining = thicker yogurt.  Remove from refrigerator and spoon into a storage vessel such as a glass jar.  Eat and enjoy! 
Store Yogurt in refrigerator.
Store unused ABY-3 Culture inside a zip lock bag in your freezer; away from moisture.
OPTIONAL Items to include:

Use our food grade nylon straining bags to strain out some of the yogurt whey which will result in a thicker yogurt.  Easy to use and clean- reusable

and much easier to use with Yogurt Making than cheese cloth.

Our Small/Nut Bag size draining bag will accommodate up to 1/2 -1 gallon batches while our Larger Light Duty bag will accommodate up to 5-7 gallons.


Three A-1 Grade Premium Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans value $28.00. Only $14.97 when purchasing our Yogurt Culture. Scrape the tiny seeds from one Vanilla Bean to add delicious flavor to your yogurt. 
These beans are much longer than what you usually find and they are thick and plump. 
Remove culture from the freezer just prior to use.
Open the pouch and pour the freeze-dried granules directly into the pasteurized product using slow agitation.
Agitate the mixture for 10-15 minutes to distribute the culture evenly. The recommended incubation temperature is 35-45°C
Shipping included within the USA.  International shipping available.

    Finally a replacement option for a brand we can’t find in stores.

    Posted by Jerry Willis on 28th Feb 2021

    We had been eating a yogurt from the store with the BB-12 probiotics. My wife has severe digestive issues and has been on the FODMAP diet for a while. Most stores have not stopped caring that yogurt in our area. However this is even better. We are now back to making our own yogurt about once a week using these cultures. The cultures produce a very thick and creamy Greek style yogurt after draining, with just a slight tanginess. The shipping was really fast and the product is excellent! Highly recommend both The Cheese Maker and these probiotic cultures.

    Great yogurt.

    Posted by Lucelle on 30th May 2019

    I just wanted to let you know that I've been making yogurt for years, using a spoonful of store-bought yogurt, and it was pretty good. Then I stumbled upon your site and bought some real yogurt culture. The yogurt I've made using the culture is fantastic! No more pretty good - now it's great. Thanks!
