Nice tangy yogurt. I prefer with small amount sweetener but hubby likes fine as is. I like this one for making Greek yogurt. I find I like all the yogurt cultures and use them differently.

Best Yogurt

From: Boston
We really love this yogurt, so much so that we made two gallons for a morning after wedding brunch where it was a big hit! Will generally make it with 2% milk and add 1/4 cup of milk powder per quart of milk. Our Yogotherm works great but we recently discovered that our oven has a dehydrate mode that will hold the temperature at 110F so have taken to make larger batches.

The Bulgarian Yogurt culture instructions were easy to follow and it worked exactly as expected. I was able to use this to culture two full quarts of milk, and used the yogurt both as a yogurt, and as a culture for stracchino. Both were a success the first time around.



The taste was nice and tart, but not sour. The flavor was perfectly balanced!

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!..

Excellent!

I'm Bulgarian and it took me forever to find yogurt in the US that comes even close to what I remember from my childhood. I'm so glad I found this company! Their starter makes excellent Bulgarian yogurt - almost as good as my grandma's homemade, and certainly better than anything you'd find in a store in Bulgaria. It's rich and flavorful, with just the right amount of tang. My American husband loves it, too, and so do our children. We all eat this yogurt every day and together go through a gallon a week, so I make a new batch every week. I've been doing this for years, propagating it from my own yogurt, with one original packet from years ago! If you eat yogurt a lot and can make a fresh batch every week or so, this can go on indefinitely and you'll have great yogurt forever!

This is a very nice yogurt with great taste and texture, but the price is a little high for only one (giant!) packet of culture. I'd feel better about it if I ever had the means to make a gallon of yogurt at a time, but two quarts is about my limit, and I feel like I'm wasting it. It also doesn't reculture very well, so don't bother saving any for your next batch.

I have had no problem re-culturing this yogurt using the Yogotherm. I use grocery store skim milk but add the 3 TBLS of dry milk powder to make the end product thicker. It also has just the right amount of tartness.




Great Yogurt

We like this yogurt so much that we can't buy yogurt in American grocery stores anymore. I buy three packages at a time. I put two in the freezer and make a half gallon of yogurt with the third. After the first batch I make a gallon at a time with a start from the previous generation. A gallon lasts me about 2 1/2 weeks. I go about a year and then get out a new package.

Great yogurt!

I reculture this yogurt weekly with our goat/sheep milk. It always turns out creamy and tangy. Bought 2 packets to give one to some friends who just started milking goats, they love it too!

I love it!!!!

I have been bit by the yogurt bug real bad. Been making my own and it is, if I may say so myself, absolutely, without a question, the most delicious I have ever tasted. I always thought this stuff would be most difficult to make but it is a piece of cake.

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.

Just what I have been looking for.

I have been making yogurt using store yogurt as starter. I was never happy with the result because, none had that beautiful tangy, sour flavor the yogurt should have. Until I found Y1. I ordered it and made my first few batches and what a difference. I don't want strawberry, vanilla, peach.... yogurt. Just this one.

Lovely Tart Yogurt

I used this culture with my raw goat's milk to make a lovely yogurt. It was nice and tart (I let it incubate longer than most people so that all or almost all of the sugars are gone). It's thin, which makes it nice for smoothies and adding to baked goods. The main reason I bought it, though, was to use as a starter for my first foray into making Feta cheese. Thank you!

Misleading instructions online

Rating:

Pros:
  • tangy flavor
Cons:
  • didn't work
  • bad instructions
From:
The instructions on your website claim that this culture can work on as much as 1 gallon of milk, but it does not. The package even says to use on 1-2 liters. I didn't read this until already setting up the culture and even after double the incubation time I still had an extremely runny yogurt. It probably works very well when you use just a half gallon but I'm giving it only three stars because of the misleading instructions and poor result I had. Flavor is still good, but the texture is more like kefir, not yogurt.

Ok but not Bulgarian

Taste was good but far from that of a Bulgarian yoghurt. BG yoghurt also contains only two strains - l.bulgaricus and s.thermophillus - and this contains many more

Really yummy, great flavor!

I used 2 packets of this culture in a gallon of Turkey Hill whole milk about 8 months ago to make the best greek yogurt I have ever had. I have been using 3 Tablespoons of yogurt/gallon of milk ever since to provide all the yogurt I want. The yogurt culture continues to thrive and the flavor just gets better.



I have even used the yogurt as a culture for several cheeses.



I highly recommend this a not too sweet multi-purpose yogurt.

super - yogurt

Bulgarian yoghurt bag I use in the preparation of cheese Taleggio, by heating raw milk - I make advance mother yorguta culture and add to the milk - it acts as a starter for this cheese variety. thanks to it the texture of cheese turns slightly damp with a very pleasant sensation of melting in your mouth

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.
