Yogurt Making Help

Making yogurt is easy.

Yogurt making is a natural process in which lactic acid bacteria ferments milk to create yogurt. So yogurt will always naturally set under the right conditions.

Sometimes you might need some help before you make the perfect yogurt. Especially if you had not made yogurt before or you have used a different type of culture.

Generally, problems with yogurt making come from:

  • using too little culture for your volume of milk (see here for how much culture to use)
  • introducing or incubating at temperature that is too high or too low (it should be max 110°F / 43°C, and it shouldn’t fall under 46°F / 28°C during incubation or it would take much longer for yogurt to set)
  • not giving the incubation enough time to finish (usually, yogurt will set around 6 hrs but that depends on other factors too and sometimes it may take twice as long)
