Yogurt (DS) Creamy - 5 packets (Y3)
3 Perfect, 1 dud, 1 to go
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..
Firm and tasty yogurt!
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.
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.
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.
