Yogurt Bulgarian - 1 packet (Y1)
Excellent result but expensive
We are fond of this type of yogurt and the result is excellent. The only problem is with the amount of the packet. 1 packet for 1-2 liters... For 5 liters 3 packets... Time to consume this amount of yogurt is definitely more than 15 days. So reculturing is not adviced and another 3 packets has to be used... Cost goes up rapidly!..
Just tangy enough, great texture.
This yogurt starter is just what I've been looking for. I started with Y5 but it was a bit too mild for my taste. This Y1 is fabulous.
You only get one packet but I froze 6 ounces as small "cubes" in an OXO ice tray. I drop one into my 115F milk and it works fine. So, this single packet is easy to expand into many makings of yogurt.
The shipping and service was great too.
very interesting taste, tangy but not tart. i find it to be not as creamy as y3, but that could just be my technique. (still working on that) we like the flavor best of the 3 cultures, with Y3 a close second. i froze some cubes as someone suggested but have yet to use them.
