Does anyone have any experience with this product?

http://www.lehmans.c...detailmain.jsp?
itemID=3248 & itemType=PRODUCT & RS=1 & keyword=yogurt

I like that it is non electric, but I wasn't sure if polystyrene foam
is something I should avoid. Any thoughts?

That is not correct ----you can do the
same w/ the dairy connection cultures---look at the ingredients! They are
essentially the same, except that NE has fillers.

Some of my folks do use it over and
over. I don’t because I do not want to increase the strep therm, and I
also don’t want to deal w/ making a mother, freezing thawing, etc.

Remember that there are some cultures that are
reculturable and some that arent. You cant use the dairy connection cultures
over and over again. You have to keep purchasing culture over and over again.
With a reculturable culture you rarely have to purchase culture.

It might a bit but I put so much " stuff " in the blender with the yogurt that I
don't really notice that much difference.

True, but the amount and quality of the
culture is much cheaper than what is available by retail, and it does not have
fillers.

here's my method of making raw yogurt in the oven. the milk does not have to be
heated. You can use cold milk right out of the fridge.

turn on the oven light to start to warm up the oven. I have an electric oven but
I think a pilot light works too if you have gas. this is the only heat source. I
put a thermometer in my oven to test the temperature and it was about 95 degrees
with just the light on. (my oven will only go as low as 170 degrees.) put 4
tablespoons of your starter culture (yogurt from a previous batch or yogurt from
the store with live cultures in it) in your container. stir in a little milk to
thin and then slowly add 4 cups of milk while stirring so it mixes in well. (I
use 1 T. for each cup of milk so you can make any amount). cover and put in the
oven for 12-24 hours. I use a glass Visions pot which holds about 6 cups of
milk. I put the lid on top and have not had to mop up whey as described in the
NT heated process. I have also used pint sized glass jars. Quart sized mason
jars should work just fine. using smaller jars will take less time vs. using the
6-cup pot.

for my starter, I used some raw yogurt from my local farmer. He uses a culture
from here. I'm not sure which one, probably the thick one.

I have a yogotherm and have used many techniques to make yogurt. I dont like using the 2 quart plastic bucket that comes with it (I dont like plastic) and instead I use a 1 quart wide mouth canning jar. If I want to make more then a couple quarts a day I will use the jars of hot water in a foam cooler method or put it in the oven with the light on but generally I use my yogotherm to make a quart or two fresh every day. While it might be cheaper to use a styrofoam cooler, the foot print of the yogotherm fit better in my house:o)The best culture I have used - and I have used a lot of different cultures - is the one that comes with the yogotherm. It is a reculturable bulgarian yogurt and is very thick, sweet and smooth. With my goats milk I get a spoonable pudding yogurt using that culture. This is the reculturable
bulgarian that you can purchase from www.cheesemaking.com. I make a mother culture from it and freeze it in ice cube trays then use that to make my yogurt. I can keep it going for months and months without much change in flavor or consistancy.Blessings,

The one that comes from New England cheesemaking
(www.cheesemaking.com) is :CULTURE
INCLUDES: Contains live cultures s.thermophilus,
l.bulgaricus, skim milk and/or lactose, lactic cultures, ascorbic acid
and is 5.95 to make 1 gal of yogurt., and w/ shipping (to me) is 8.37



The ABY2C costs 11.75 for a 50 gal size, and 16.45
for a 100 gal size. Shipping is 2nd day air---to protect
against heat damage---and runs about $20.
For $37 you get a stable, no fillers, added
probiotics freeze dried culture (and it is recultureable) that will make,
for the small yogurt maker, about 50 gal of yogurt, versus 8.37 for
1 gal. (or over $400 for the same amount of culture) In addition, over
time the strep thermopolis tends to over grow the other beneficial
bacteria if it is recultured repeatedly. I also do not like the added skim
milk and/or lactose.

ABY2C has in it

Lactobacillus delbrueckii
subsp. bulgaricus
Streptococcus thermophilus
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Bifidobacterium longum
Bifidobacterium infanti

That tartness comes because the strep
thermopolis is growing at a high rate than the lactic acid bacteria.

Belinda,


I make my yogurt in my gas oven and use
commercial yogurt as the starter also.





When you reuse your own starter do you find
that the yogurt gets tarter as time goes on? My dh says ours gets that way so I
make fresh starter every other or every third time. Was wondering if
you had this experience too.

Re:

You
really don't need a special machine to make yogurt. I make mine in a picnic
cooler. When the weather is cold I put warm to boiling water in before I put
the jars of yogurt in. It stays nice and warm and the yogurt is just fine.

As far as starter goes I buy yogurt that contains active culture and use it,
not a big deal. Once my first yogurt is made I make the next batches from my
own yogurt.

hope that helps,

Belinda
