Yogurt Starter Great to MAKE Yogurt Starter
This is my favorite yogurt starter. Because I use a lot of yogurt, I use it to make my own starter. I bought the half gallon yogurt maker from Yogourmet, and using two packets of freeze-dried starter, I make a half gallon of yogurt to use as starter. When it's done and chilled, I divide it into 8-ounce containers (make sure they are scrupulously clean!). To prolong their freshness, I press a sheet of plastic wrap onto the surface of the yogurt so that the yogurt isn't exposed to any air, and then press on a tight-sealing lid. I stack all the starter containers into a large canister to catch any leakage and put them into the back of the refrigerator. Don't freeze them! When I make yogurt, I use one of those containers as starter for each half gallon. This results in fantastic yogurt!!

Yum, yum, yummy!
I just made my first batch and it is wonderful. I am so pleased that I found this product. There will be no more store bought yogurt in this house. Economical and best tasting.

Good Product
Use this yogurt starter to make yogurt every couple weeks. We like the pro-biotics in it. We have never had a batch that didn't turn out. Swanson seems to have the cheapest yogurt starter on the internet too. Seems like this starter is out of stock pretty often, however.
