My mouth is watering, I only hope my yoghurts turn out better than Wendy Craig's when she starred as Rhia in the BBC comedy series 'Butterflies'

Love yogurt at brekkie time, just ordered. Thanks OP.

I have only started making my own yoghurts this week, with a similar maker off amazon. Not sure if this comes with spare jars... But they are very useful. It means you can start making the next batch before you've finished and washed the last lot.

For the starter yoghurt I used a yeo valley (full fat) that comes in a little green pot, and was about 50p.

We have the EasyYo maker and it's lovely. It doesn't use any electricity and although their packets taste great, you don't have to use them (i.e. you can use culture + milk as normal).

It's also available on Amazon for almost the same price.

The price of this VonChef is unbelievable though with the 7 jars,..etc and I couldn't stop myself from ordering one ;-)

I purchased mine one minute after midnight this morning, ticked Free express 2 day delivery. I've just received an email it's already loaded on a Yodel delivery van for either today or tomorrow for delivery. Fantastic service with also a confirmation of dispatch email from Domu and a tracking number and link for Yodel delivery. Fast work guys 10/10.

Now to rush out and buy my starter yoghurt culture, any more reviews on a good one to start the yoghurt making process with?

you dont actually need a yoghurt maker .. just warm milk in a pan to pre simmer (about 5 minutes with stirring) but not a boil allow to cool to around body temp add live yoghurt (shop bought ready made yoghurt) about 3 tablespoons to a litre of milk , mix and either pour it into a thermos or my preferred is oven proof dish and leave at lowest setting ~ 40 degrees celcius for overnight about 6-8 hours.

Look on amazon at all the comments on yoghurt makers... Some good tips on there.

A few more though. If you want thicker yoghurt mix in some milk powder - about 1 tsp per jar. For flavouring, I have only used raspberries. I had frozen ones- heated them in a pan with a bit of sugar and then added some cornflour to thicken itup. I then add some of this to the yoghurt when it is cooling. Should work with other fruits as well.

I have yogurt everyday (love the danio thick set ones) and would love to make yogurt low in fat and high in protein, would this be ideal?

I use the ancient yoghurt maker tool, my elbow.

When milk is brought to just before it boils, take it off heat.

Let it cool to the point when a man's elbow can be left in it for some seconds.

Then quickly add a couple of table spoons of yoghurt, even one spoon suffices.

Put the lid on the pot, wrap tightly in a blanket so keeps heat in.

Store in a cupboard out of the draft, next to the boiler is ideal.

24 hours later, yoghurt!

IF YOU UNWRAP TO HAVE A LOOK BEFORE IT'S DONE: YOU'VE RUINED IT!

Use excess water in making yoghurt drinks as in Asian curry joints: add salt & yoghurt & use a hand blender.

Drain to excess for Greek style extra extra thick sour type.

This is a good deal at even twenty for those interested, a yoghurt thermometer would cost you nearly a tenner.

Or use a cheap thermometer and wrap it up when it cools to between 45 to 49 degrees Celsius, 48 is best imo, or the elbow.

Secret of long life: eat yoghurt every day

This yoghurt maker should do it all, it's a good deal.

Or buy a cheap thermometer that stands boiling point from eBay or Amazon. People with experience don't need a thermometer but you can ruin it if a beginner.

Take it off heat when between 85 to 90 degrees Celsius, should never boil over. Wrap it up at 48 degrees.

Just need a pot with lid to Boil in & a thick blanket.

For removing the eXcess water use a muslin, much better than a fine sieve.

The Greeks let it drain through the muslin quite a bit. Even more for the solidish type.

It will have excess water on top after unwrapping. That green water is extreMely beneficial, make a lassee type drink as I said: for eaCh glass add about a third yoghurt plus salt, hand blend preferably with an electric stick blender quite a bit till it's foaming.

Can make healthy frozen yoghurt desserts, hippy breakfast: with chopped fruits & a little muesli, cut in cucumber, with a little jam as dessert, marinating or Cooking sauce etc.

am I missing something?

to make the 'yoghurt' you need to buy natural yoghurt and then mess around?

why not just buy the flavoured.yoghurt in the first place?
#28
yes would be missing the chemical preservatives too in some flavoured products. ;)

Bigger Sainsburys do a big basic orange pot for 50p which is good. But not as fresh or cheap as homemade.

Now ask yourself how was the original yoghurt made with no yoghurt? :D

We have been using this yoghurt maker for two weeks now and it's fantastic. Natural and thick Greek yoghurt perfect every time. We purchased some ice cream squirty juice and use it to add flavour also natural honey makes a nice flavour as well. So far so good. You won't be disappointed.

Yeah it is the pots and heater with timer and it makes natural yoghurt without the added chemicals. IT'S simple and easy to use, hardly uses any electricity. You can make a batch and store in the fridge as normal. We use 1 litre of whole milk, 2 heaped tablespoons of powdered milk to thicken and 2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt with the longest shelf life to make your first initial batch. Whisk all the mixture together and place in the pots, set the timer for 7 hours and hey presto the best tasting yoghurt ever. Better than the shop bought added chemicals yoghurt. It really is simple and easy to make, and you know it's better by just the taste alone.

Oh and then you make your next batch with yoghurt from your first batch, so you've no need to buy any more yoghurt from the shops, just carry on using your own yoghurt to make more yoghurt.

Start it off with one of the small tubs of Rachel's natural yoghurt, which is pretty decent as far as yoghurt goes and makes a great starter for batches of yoghurt in my experience... Make sure you get the one with the furthest away expiry date.
Mix a few spoons of that in with enough milk to make a batch and then leave the yoghurt maker to do its business overnight... They say 6 hours but I found you needed to leave it for closer to 9 to get good results.

Once you've made a batch you can just use that as a starter from then on, then use the next batch as starter for the next and on and on...

My one of these worked brilliantly, but just stopped working halfway through a batch one day... Could just be a blown fuse or something, so I'll have to have another look at it tomorrow.

did you use a thermometer to check the temperature of the yoghurt when it had finished? mine was at 64 degrees c, online it says that it shouldn't go above 46 degree Celsius, or the live cultures die off, and your just left with a pasteurized yoghurt.
don't know whether mine is faulty, or this machine is not up to the job.

Well my yogurt was awful .. It looked curdled and although it tasted okay it was bitty. I didnt use a thermometer i just guessed. Thats probably why it turned out so bad. I did it for 8 hours also .. maybe i should have done it for longer.
