Never fails and keeps well in freezer. Very smooth and slightly tart. We sometimes .use a tinny bit of agave eating with granola.

This yogurt culture has wonderful mild flavor and makes for delicious greek yogurt. The subtle sweet flavor is perfect for fresh berries without the need for added sugar. Very pleased with the consistency of the product, every batch has turned out well.

I started making fresh yogurt about a year ago and have always used these cultures. they keep well in the freezer and provide the right flavor to the final product. Wouldn't think about using anything else

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!

This culture set up quickly with great consistency. Taste was excellent too! Between this and the Y5 sweet, it's hard to decide which is better. This is easy to make, easy to digest, How nice to have the best at home. Store bought just won't do anymore, this is so much better. Thanks!!!

Best Ever!

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 tried in the past to make yogurt from our raw goat milk, but I always ended up with a thin watery yogurt that was more like buttermilk in consistency than yogurt. I made a large batch with two packets of this recently, and it turned out great! It's still not as thick as store-bought right after cooling, but with a little draining it was thick, delicious, and creamy!

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.

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

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.

Love the flavor!

Now that I have my own goat's milk, I make this yogurt about once a week. It has a nice tangy flavor just the way I like it! I prefer it over the "sweet" yogurt.

Lovely fresh, tart and tangy

I love the fresh taste this yoghurt culture gives our goat milk! We drink some and I also drain some to get the consistency of Greek style yoghurt, and we use it in place of sour cream. One of our favourite places to use it is with Mexican food, especially our home made burritos. Yum!

So far, this has been my favorite yogurt culture (between this and Sweet). It yields a flavorful yogurt with a rich and creamy texture that is delicious with soft-set jams and jellies. Right now, my favorite additions are sourcherry jam and a bit of Hershey's chocolate syrup, but my failed strawberry jam is a close second (it didn't jel enough).
