    Q. I purchased the yogotherm and was wondering if I could transfer the yogurt after the 7 hours to small jars or would that disturb the bacteria?

    A. if you move the milk at this point it will lose the consolidated curd that has developed during ripening and whey will separate from the curd when chilled.

    I love this product to make my yogurt. It is so easy! I make yogurt about once a week. The only thing I wished were changed is the handle as it can be somewhat awkward with opening and closing the lid, not a biggie!

    Great yogurt maker!

    I have been using my Yogotherm to make yogurt for about 10 years and I love it. It is easy to use and takes no additional energy while the yogurt sets. After 30 minutes of hands on work and 8 hours of sitting in the Yogotherm you have two quarts of yogurt to enjoy! I would recommend the Yogotherm to anyone that is interested in making their own yogurt.

    Yogotherm yogurt maker

    I decided to start making yogurt again because it didn't feel good, tossing one quart-size yogurt container every week. Back in the day, when ovens had pilot lights, all we had to do was put a bowl in the oven and wait. Oops, ovens don't have pilot lights anymore. When I first saw the Yogotherm, I thought it was a bit pricey. Finally decided to buy it and it's more than paid for itself, while salving my conscience by lessening the trash stream. It works perfectly every time. There's no concern about whether all the little cups are empty and ready for re-use. No worries about the power going out, which happens a lot where I live. It's been a good investment and I love it.

    Love the Yogotherm

    I got the yogotherm as a gift a few years ago and we love it! Makes me happy to make our yogurt from scratch. I can't wait to use raw milk from our own cows due to calf this month!!

    Makes my breakfast for me!

    My wife and I work toward a self-sustaining life. Gardens, chickens, goats. Any products that helps us provide for ourselves is a useful product. The Yogotherm Yogurt Maker 2 Quarts is such a product. Who knew that making your own yogurt was so easy and fun. We use this product a couple of times a week. It never fails to work (no moving parts). It is so simple to use. Just fill with your milk and starter culture before bedtime and in the morning you have breakfast ready to go!

    We Love Homemade Yogurt with YogoTherm

    I've been using the YogoTherm weekly for 2 years now. It's easy, quick, and economical to make yogurt that is fresh and has the consistency that we like. It takes me about 40 min from start to clean-up - well worth the time and effort since we no longer purchase and recycle two plastic yogurt containers a week - and enjoy a superior product! I leave the yogurt to culture for 5.5 hours in the YogoTherm before refrigerating it. I would prefer a glass container to the plastic insert - so I decant the chilled yogurt into glass jars for storage and serving. Any chance YogoTherm could produce a glass insert as an option to the plastic one?

    This yogurt maker was easy to understand, and the perfect solution for someone like me who lives off the grid. I have made my first two batches successfully after reading the simple instructions. I have already recommended this to a friend!

    Worth the expense

    I was a little hesitant to buy this because I have been doing pretty well making yoghurt in mason jars in a small cooler with hot water. I'm glad I made the switch. The Yogotherm takes up less counter space, and doesn't involve water sloshing around. I have noticed I need to be a little more precise with the milk temp( a little on the high side) when transferrring to the plastic pail or the yoghurt turns out thinner. All in all, I am happy I made the switch.

    Yogotherm

    I am happy as a clam in mud on a rainy day! As a 1st time yogurt maker, I poured raw milk into the Yogotherm bucket (to measure quantity), then poured the bucket milk into a stainless steel pot, heated it to 190 degrees (stirring constantly), popped the pot into a bigger pot of ice water and stirred the milk down to 120 degrees, then whisked yogurt culture (a cup of commercial organic yogurt) into the milk and poured the milk back into the freshly washed Yogotherm bucket sitting inside its insulated sleeve. I put the insulated lid on and let it sit for 3-4 hours on the counter, then put just the bucket in the frig overnight. Next morning I had the sweetest, most delicious yogurt on Earth. That night I put yogurt in a yogurt cheesemaker, the next day I had delicious yogurt cream cheese and gorgeous whey for my next batch of sauerkraut brine. Figuring what I've been spending on commercial yogurt and cream cheese against this DIY cost, the Yogotherm and the cheesemaker will pay for themselves in 3 weeks. Taste-wise, I'm spoiled now, only want homemade.

    I was skeptical about trying to make yogurt until I found this! I just heat up the milk and let it sit in here. It's fabulous! Never lets me down. I've been making it for months now and have had no troubles!

    Great product!

    Have been using this to make yogurt on a weekly basis for a couple of years now and it works great. I also like that you can buy the components separately; we have two of the plastic buckets since it's handy to store in the fridge and you can make multiple products. Have also used for goat cheese recently to hold it at a steady temp.

    Easy to use, even for beginners

    I bought his product over a year ago so I could make my own yogurt using milk from local farms that is fresh and free of chemicals and additives. I really like it. It is easy to use and produces some very nice yogurt. It has held up very well, too.

    Terrific

    this is just the thing for making the best fresh and inexpensive yoghurt. We even drain it in cheesecloth to make Greek style yoghurt and use the whey in smoothies. Never buy yoghurt in a store

    Yogotherm

    If you want to make your own yogurt I highly recommend the Yogotherm to keep your Yogurt in the desired incubate temp range for 6-12 hours, by far the easiest way to do it. It's sized to process 1/2 gallon of milk at a time. After cooling I pour 1/2 Gallon of milk in the Yogotherm at 115 degrees and when the temp drops to 100 deg. I pour it into a very fine mesh strainer for 3-4 hours and get great thick Greek style yogurt. I also buy the culture from them. Trust me after just a few days you will notice the healthy bacteria in your digestive system.

    Here's a couple of recipe ideas. I use 2% Milk.

    1. Follow the instructions on their culture packet. I add both 1/3 cup of non-fat instant milk plus I keep it at 185 for 20 minutes as their directions suggest for thicker yogurt. Then for even thicker Greek style yogurt pour it in a very fine mesh strainer for 3 hours. Much easier and less loss than using cheese cloth. Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar and 5 tsps. of vanilla extract.

    2. For Blueberry or Strawberry yogurt instead of adding vanilla, put 1 1/4 cup of berries in a sauce pan and sauté them for 20 minutes, add 1 tsp of corn starch to thicken it up. Then add to yogurt...delicious!

    Great concept

    I really like this. I use it regularly for both yogurt and buttermilk and it works great. I have also picked up some good ideas from other's reviews. I always sterilize the pail before use by pouring in boiling water which also preheats the pail. I would have given it 5 stars had the price been more reasonable.

    Love mine so much I bought 2 more for my children. They are very well made. In the heat summer of the months I use it to make small batches of fresh cheese. Everyone should own one.

    Simple but great!

    I've really liked the Yogotherm. There are other ways to make yogurt, but it is the easiest way for our family. It makes exactly half a gallon, and I like that it isn't plugged in or taking up a large space like a cooler would. We make yogurt at least once a week and always have great results. Would buy it again.

    It just works.

    I was a bit skeptical about how well this expensive bunch of plastic would work, but so far I am pretty happy. I've used it twice now, and both times, the temperature after 9 to 10 hours had dropped by about 10F to 15F. What I do to keep the whole gadget a bit warmer is to put it into my oven with the oven light on. This lowers the heat loss a bit and keeps my yogurt warm and happy longer. I agree with some of the other reviewers that this is a bit more expensive then I would have liked, but again, it works so it's money well spent.

    Favorite Still

    I've had one of these for many years. I don't remember how long ago I purchased it, but I store it in the box it came in and it still looks good. Several years ago I purchased an extra pail for it in case the original ever wears out of if I'm storing a batch in the frig and want to make another batch.

    We really enjoy yogurt so a 2 quart batch doesn't last too long with two of us eating it. I make mine with powdered milk and add more milk powder than I'd use to make milk for drinking. I fill the pail with hot water to warm it up while I'm waiting for the heated milk to cool enough to add the starter. Just before I'm ready to pour the batch into the pail, I dump out the water and pour my milk with culture into the still warm pail. Pour the warm milk into the pail, close the lid and put the pail into the YogoTherm unit. I usually place the Yogotherm on a heavy bath towel that I wrap around it for the duration. I've had great results whether I leave it for 6 hours or 12 hours. My yogurt is usually thick enough due to the added milk powder, but can be strained to thicken it more.

    I really is a great buy

    I bought the Yogotherm a few years ago from you. When it arrived, I thought I paid a lot for the plastic container and moulded styrofoam insulation, but I proceeded ahead anyway and have not been disappointed since. It has been a joy to use the maker and the yogurt always turns out fantastic. It's still got lots of life left, although the styrofoam insulation has gotten a bit yucky looking, and that is perhaps the only downside, that you really can't clean it up. But the bottom line is, it still makes great yogurt--and doesn't at all need electricity.
