FAQ:

Q: What is the Best Yogurt starter?

A: About Bacillus Bulgaricus is a yogurt starter which makes the world best tasting yogurt. It is an easy-to-use no-fuss starter which makes thick, creamy and absolutely delicious Bulgarian yogurt.

Q: How long can you keep yogurt starter?

A: Once your milk and starter are combined, all that’s left is to keep the yogurt at a steady temperature (110°F to 115°F), undisturbed, for 5 to 10 hours, which allows the good bacteria to flourish.

Q: How much yogurt starter to use?

A: Use about 4 grams of starter to make 2 gallons / 8 liters of yogurt. This is about a full teaspoon of starter. Note: The minimum quantity of starter you should use is 1/4 of a teaspoon. That is enough for about 16 — 32oz / 0.5 — 1 liters of yogurt.

Q: Can I use flavored yogurt as a starter?

A: A note on starters when learning how to make homemade yogurt: you can’t use flavored yogurt as a starter culture – the flavorings inhibit the fermentation process. This means you can’t flavor it until the next day, after the batch is finished and refrigerated.
