Our brand new line of LyoPro yogurt cultures are manufactured in Italy and are all NON-GMO.
LyoPro YD+ (back by popular deman) is a freeze-dried Lactic Starter Culture for yogurt that is also chock full of probiotics! This is the one that produces a bit more tart flavor yogurt similar to what might be considered "Bulgarian Style" yogurt. If you love other bulgarian cultures, then you will love this one even more! Don't be afraid of this "tart" flavor... try it, you just might love it better than the very mild option. If you like your yogurt with more mild, then choose our LyoPro Y+
And we offer more options for purchase in convenient sizes of 1 tsp, 2tsp, 4 tsp, and 12 tsp. They are best stored in the freezer, and then let them come to room temperature just prior to use.
Homesteader's Supply has tested our new line of cultures and have found them to be superior in texture and flavor... resulting in a very creamy flavorful yogurt! And they are very concentrated... use only 1/16th tsp for up to a gallon of milk! We give you 1 teaspoon of culture so you can make 16 gallons of yogurt... or even more if you use some of your freshly made yogurt to incubate your next batch!
We've learned that most yogurts can be made at variable thickness for your preference. Some cultures turn out a thinner version that some folks love to drink. And some come out a bit thicker. But know that you can create the thickness you like. See our recipe below.

Ingredients: Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum. Carrier: Dextrose (Note: cultures may contain the same ingredients except the amount of each one may be more or less than the other and thus it creates a different flavor)
Yogurt Instructions: heat milk from 165 -185 degrees. Once that temperature is reached allow the milk to cool down to 110 degrees and add yogurt culture. Allow culture to dissolve on top of milk for a minute or two. Then stir throughout well. Cover your pot and place it somewhere it can remain warm for about 7-12 hours. If using a Yogotherm, Immediately pour this cultured milk into the inner bucket, secure the lid. Place bucket into the Yogotherm, and replace it's lid. Place your yogotherm in a warm area and allow it to incubate for 7 to 12 hours... more if you like.
The longer you incubate the yogurt the thicker it will get. After incubation time, if you like thinner yogurt then place it into the refrigerator until it's cold and then ready to enjoy! But, if you want THICK yogurt, no matter what yogurt culture you use, then place it into a cheesecloth lined colander over a pot or bowl. Allow to drain for 4 to 8 hrs. The time draining depends upon how thick you want your yogurt!
