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.

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!..

Good for once in a while, but...

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.

good yogurt

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!

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.

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

super taste

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.

I have tried all the yogurt varieties available on this site and have settled on the Bulgarian as my favorite. I like that I can re-culture it and that the mother culture keeps for a long time in the fridge without losing it's efficacy or texture. I make cream top yogurt from unhomogenized milk, using this culture, which is absolutely divine!

Will use thickener next time

Produces a mild, slightly tangy yogurt. I did not have a yogotherm, so I used a cooler instead and it worked well. Final product was a little runny (although this was my first attempt at yogurt so I cannot compare with other products)... I will use some milk powder as a thickener next time.
