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.

    Consistent culture with a great flavour every batch. This is my second order of this culture and I see no reason to change. Love the instructions it came with too!

    Best Yogurt Culture by far

    Posted by Mike Bowman on 23rd May 2018

    I have used many different cultures and my wife likes this far better than any other. She said it had just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. My new GO TO yogurt culture!

    thick yogurt

    Posted by Lisa on 4th Mar 2018

    My yogurt turned out great, after following the instructions to a T. I used a heating pad set at a medium temperature, with a blanket wrapped around the yogurt. Did this in the evening, and by the morning it turned out good and thick.

    Turned Out First Try

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jan 2018

    I am new to yogurt making, and this culture allowed me to be successful on my first try. It makes a nice mild yogurt with a thick, smooth texture. Much better than any yogurt from the store!

    This has been our "go to" yogurt culture for many years now. It produces lovely, sweet and tangy, thick yogurt with superior probiotic properties reliably; every time.

    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!

    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.

    Good product

    Posted by Vera on 5th Jan 2017

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Speedy delivery

    Posted by Jackie on 8th Aug 2014

    Product delivered very quickly and even had ziploc provided to store the remaining product once opened, very smart!

    Good as it gets; really

    Posted by Woody Williams on 16th Apr 2014

    I've been using this culture since July of 2012. At one batch every two weeks or so, that's a lot of yogurt under the spoon. Prior to that, I've used a lot of other cultures... A lot. This one is simple the best. Aroma and flavor are superb, it is buttery, clean, and refreshing. Texture is firm and, if the whey is drained, makes a Greek-style yogurt that is simply unbelievably good. If you only try one yogurt culture, make it this one.
