Where is the best place to buy the starter cultures?



Don't waste your money. Buy a small pot of Yeo Valley plain yoghurt with the green lid for 50p in any supermarket. Works just as well as any expensive culture. Yoghurt won't work with normal milk though without pre-heating and fiddling about to kill bacteria. Easiest way of making it is to use UHT long life full fat milk. We get it from Tesco in packs of 6, but guess other supermarkets sell it too. Split the Yeo valley yoghurt equally between the 7 pots. Add the milk - one litre is just right for 7 pots and stir. Pop the jars in the yoghurt maker and set timer for 14 hours. You can do it for less, just won't be quite as thick or creamy. That's it. Enjoy

The EasiYo is much better without having to use electric for 7 odd hours …The EasiYo is much better without having to use electric for 7 odd hours Simply heat the full fat milk in a heavy based pan and let cool to luke warm, add 2 tablespoons of live yogurt to the plastic container and then a tablespoon of powdered milk. Add the warm milk, stir gently and close the lid. Place in EasiYo flask with boiling water and 16 hours later, perfect yogurt.



I'd have to respectfully disagree. We've used both and the EasyYo is far less reliable and more work, plus it costs slightly more because of the powdered milk and doesn't taste as good. Evidenced by the fact that our electric yoghurt maker is used all the time and we have 2 EasyYo makers retired at the back of the cupboard which we would be happy to let anyone have free if they want them. At this price, the electric one is a no-brainer. It's cheaper than the EasyYo anyway.

Obviously there are lots of ways to make yoghurt, I daresay that you could make it in an old hot water bottle and getting the dog to lie on it for 10 hours, but unless you actually like all the messing about pre-heating the milk and so on, this is by far and away the best way to make it. We've never had a bad batch in 2 years or more

My dad makes yoghurt using a regular pan, plastic food container (or thermos flask) and a blanket!

Just use a small pot of live, plain yoghurt (check the label for "made with live cultures" or a list of "live bacteria"). Use organic if you want.

No need for any special equipment or ingredients. A wide mouth flask would be much easier to clean than this, but a standard flask does the job and that's how mum did it for years.

You also need a pan to heat the milk up first, but most people have that anyway.

Plenty of guides on Google; just avoid the ads that want to sell you something.

Thanks for this. I'm intrigued as I didn't even know that you can make yoghurt at home! What are the benefits of this over buying ready made from the supermarket?

Price mostly. Once you have made one batch with the purchased yoghurt you can use what you made as the starter for the next couple of batches. After that you need to buy again as it gets less effective. Works out at around 90p a litre. Electric cost in that price is about 4p

Yes, wide mouth flask, UHT full fat (makes thicker yogurr) 69p in Home Bargains. Heat to 47C and whisk in a desert spoon of natural EasyYo (eBay out of date packs). Place somewhere warm for 8 hours. Chill & eat.

Also you can make flavoured versions which go down great with the kids by using nesquik in the base milk

I'm not suggesting use of the EasiYo powders. A tablespoon of Morrisons' Savers milk powder binds the yogurt and leaves no aftertaste. I should add when we make a yogurt batch we usually run 4 EasiYo flasks at once making a large batch. We use a lot of yogurt for cooking so none ever wastes. Horses for courses I guess but 7 little pots for our family we'd need the maker on too often to meet our needs.

This is an amazing price! Normally replacement jars cost about this much! Thanks for posting op.

Fair enough if you make that much. Just the two of us and we eat a jar a day I have 2 EasyYo's doing nothing if you need any more

Welcome back to the 1970s.

Back then I did make yogurt at home, first with simple methods and after with an electric heated "incubator" but it isn't very good compared to the commercial product, perhaps because temperature control is not so easy so you can over-cook the milk, or not sterilize it adequately and bacteria with off flavours develop. The commercial producers have the gear and expertise to produce something far better.

Go back in time and yogurt was a very expensive product, I am a big fan of yogurt, I eat it every day so it was worthwhile to make it, even if it was thin and generally insipid. Now yogurt is available so cheap I have no idea why anyone would bother. One post yesterday lists 1kg of Pakeeza yogurt for 97p at Asda, and although it is not a very good product, it is probably still better than most will achieve at home.

Aldi and Lidl (in particular) produce a variety of yogurt all far better than homemade for prices that make this obsolete. £1.38 per litre for Greek style, 98p per litre for low fat variety.

Thanks buying this to make yakult because that stuff is expensive

Wouldn't it be lovely if we all had the time to make frigging yoghurt?

If you have the time to sign up to make one comment, then you have the time to make yogurt
Seriously not much more than the time to make a pot of tea, if you use UHT milk.
Personally I do it because we use a lot of it, and when we are away it saves tripping to the supermarket every few days.

Still showing as £6.15 to me?
Really hot find by the way OP, and good timing for me; was just reading Michael Mosley's book about gut health and the microbiome, and how homemade yogurt with live cultures provides many more beneficial bacteria than the shop-bought pasteurized stuff.

I'll see if they go in a small parcel. If not, probably more than worth your while

Keeps at least a week in the fridge, probably longer, but always eaten before then
