Yoghurt
« on: October 13, 2017, 12:11:51 AM »
Ingredients 2l full fat pasteurized milk
125ml Natural Yogurt with live cultures.
(Health food store may have cultures)

Heat milk gently to 95C stirring constantly.
Cool to 45C in ice bath, stirring to prevent skin forming.
Thin 125ml yogurt with some of the cooled milk (same as volume of yogurt)
Whisk yogurt into milk.
Keep at 44C. (I did 36 with cultures, worked ok)
Leave 4 hours or overnight to set - Longer means thicker, more souring.
Chill to 6C.
Eat

Found this too, no boil yogurt.
As above, just use freshly opened pasteurized milk, skip the 95C step, just heat to 44C

I do as above and place container on top of sky box in the cabinet under the tv. Works fine

I used ferm fridge, could only get it to 38 as there was a lot of air space, plus no recirc fan.
It still worked out well, 2 batches in.
A hotpress could work too
