3 Perfect, 1 dud, 1 to go

From: Toronto, Canada
This is an excellent culture...by far the creamiest and thickest yogurt I've ever prepared. Except for 1 packet that was an absolute dud.



5 hrs incubation and all I had was warm milk...put in another packet and 5 hrs later all was saved.



Still I'm left with mixed feelings on this one..

Always luscious!

I've occasionally been making yogurt from various cultures for over 40 years. It was very good but not enough better then store bought for all the extra work. Then I tried Y3 and followed the Greek yogurt recipe. I can no longer be satisfied with store bought! It was the best yogurt I have ever eaten in my life ( I'm 65). Can't wait for more culture. I don't ever want to be without again!! I love love love it!

Best yogurt ever

I regularly use Y3 to make yogurt using locally produced Pickett Fence milk. It makes the best yogurt ever...so good I don't like to ever run out. It doesn't need any flavoring, maybe just a bit of honey for a little sweetness if I am in the mood. The yogurt comes out thick and creamy with just enough tang. I use a bread proofer set to 110 F and let it sit for about 6 hours, which makes it nice and firm, just the way I like it. It comes as close as any I have ever had to the yogurt I had in the Netherlands when I was in high school that came in glass milk bottles from the dairy.

Consistent product, great texture

We use raw milk, so I've had problems with other products providing a consistent result. As long as I don't make any mistakes on my end, this culture has served us well. It's more forgiving than I expected, too.

Excellent!

I had liked the texture of Y5 - very smooth - but the flavor is very mild. I tried Y3 with a half gallon of cream top low fat milk. Wow! Really tasty. It set up so firm, I used one quart for my weekly yogurt needs and ladelled the other half into a "disposable ricotta mold" basked. 24 hours of draining and I had a lovely formed yogurt cheese. The yogurt has a really nice flavor and custard-like texture.

Great product

This is a great culture. It feels really good to make something at home in your own kitchen that you know is going to be good for and taste great as well.

I miss (DS) tangy yogurt

From: Louisiana
I will try Y3 and hope that it is as nice as (DS) tangy yogurt. As far as making it, I use a cooler with a baby electric blanket on the bottom (covered with a towel). I keep it in the cooler for 12 or more hours and the outcome is great. Used from fat free to whole milk (purchased at Sam's and Kroger) and things worked flawlessly. I am a self proclaimed yogurt addict - can eat a 24 oz. jar of yogurt in one sitting. My wife also made Greek style yogurt from it and it worked great - try making frozen yogurt... mmmmmmmm....

it's true; it's very creamy!

it is slightly more mild than the bulgarian yogurt, but still with very interesting flavor. Y5 is a bit bland for us, but we enjoy both the bulgarian & Y3 cultures. this one's texture can't be beat. very nice.

Say goodbye to store-bought yogurt

Caution: If you make yogurt with this culture, you will not buy yogurt in the store again. I have a constant batch in my fridge, ready for recipes that call for yogurt and for my husband to eat daily.



He swears that it really changes the flora in his intestinal system and improves his digestion. He loves the taste and has replaced his expensive probiotic pills with the yogurt, saying it does a better job.

Success!

Using whole milk with 1/4 cup of carnation milk powder, this yogurt, undrained, is just as thick as the Greek yogurt I USED TO buy. And is Much better tasting. As long as I can get these, I don't see myself ever buying yogurt again. For me, 7 hours of sitting in the yogotherm is just right.

I've tried all of the yogurt cultures. This the richest. Makes great yogurt cheese. 15 min. straining it becomes a decadent thick Greek style yogurt. Never fails to set. Found a packet in my culture container that was 6 months past due. Set perfectly.

very good creamy yogurt

This is my second choice of yogurt cultures (the first being the sweet). This one has a bit more yogurt tang to it, but is not sour. And it really is a bit creamier!

Very happy with this culture!

Pros:
  • Quality
  • Bulk pricing is a great deal
Cons:
From: Boxborough, MA
Took advantage of the bulk pricing last time I ordered. Make yogurt weekly and have had great success with basic formula, added milk powder and yogotherm. Keeps perfectly well in freezer.

I alternate between this culture and the Sweet culture...just because. The end result is always tasty.
