    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.

    Makes making yogurt so easy!

    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!

    I love my Yogotherm and use it at least twice a week. The home made yogurt is better than any you will buy in the grocery stores.

    We use this a LOT! We almost didn't buy it because of the price. It's so worth it to us though because it makes yogurt making so simple.

    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.

    Amazing

    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.

    Good Product

    <p>The Yogotherm is a simple solution that works great. It makes 1/2 gallon of fresh, great yogurt at a time (I wish there was a 1 gallon size). The removable bucket is easy to store in the fridge - and clean when it is empty. It does not require electricity, so I do not have to worry about the hazard of leaving the thing plugged in. I just did a quick search on the Internet for other yogurt makers, and I did not find anything even close to this product for simplicity, durability and capacity (even though I still wish they had a 1 gallon version). We have had our Yogotherm for 7 years, and we are going to pick up another. The only negative thing I can say is that I believe the product costs about 20-30percent more than it should. I am going to buy a second one anyway.</p>

    I'm hooked on homemade yogurt!

    This is a great, simple, non-electric yogurt maker! Just heat your milk to 180, cool to 110, add culture and wait. Took my third 1/2 gallin batch to get the consistency I wanted. For a thicker yogurt, I added a cup or 2 of dry non-fat milk powder and just about 2 envelooes of unflavored gelatin. For me, this adds needed milk solids for less than whole milk and the gelatin aids in thickening when it sits in the refrigerator. I added honey and vanilla when bringing it up to temp. Plus, it tastes fantastic and saves lots of money in the long run. Nice break from cheesemaking too and you can eat it right away!

    I love this yogurt maker. I just got it and made perfect yogurt. I had tried several different methods and incubating it myself but the results were never consistent. I don't know if the bulgarian culture made the difference but it was wonderful!

    Love my Yogotherm

    I've been using the Yogotherm for 2 years now and LOVE IT! The yogurt is easy to make and so yummy! Not only can I control the quality of my yogurt vs. store-bought but we are no longer throwing away/recycling a plastic tub every week. I feel better about what we are eating because we can make it nonfat and organic and its a bonus that we are not adding to the landfill. All it takes is about 10-15 minutes then leaving the milk and culture overnight. I do use a gelatin at times to make it thicker but realistically, higher fat milk thickens more than nonfat so you can really do without that additive. My nieces love adding their own flavors to the yogurt with different jams and jellies while we like plain. Overall, a great product!

    Holy cow - I'd give this 10 stars!

    Just got my yogotherm a couple of days ago. This was my first attempt at making yoghurt, and it's absolutely the best we've ever had! Incredibly fast & easy. Used Stonyfield yoghurt as the starter, local organic skim milk, and about 10 minutes of work. I didn't need to use the suggested milk powder or gelatin to get it really thick, just followed the instructions for draining off the whey (also delicious - I'll use it in my cooking). Why-oh-why did I not do this years ago? I think I'm saving $4-6/week. Thanks so much for the best new product I've tried in years! (Also fast delivery and helpful customer service.)



    The size wasn't a problem. I let the yoghurt sit out overnight in the yogotherm (at the suggestion of customer service), drained it for an hour or two, then put the yoghurt into a regular 1-quart yoghurt container for refrigeration.

    Wow! Bigger Than I Expected

    Well, I just ordered this. I was a little surprised on how big it is and hope I can find a place in my small Kitchen for it. I am new to making yogurt, etc. and have not tried it yet. We will see how it goes. I think this item is a little spendy in my opinion, none the less it should make the process a little easier I would think. At any rate, I'm very excited to give it a try! P.S. It would be great if this item would have come in different colors (just a suggestion to pass on to the manufacturer :-)).
