Tips and Hints
Finished Yogurt and Taste
- Check yogurt consistency during the fermentation process to avoid over-culturing. Begin checking yogurt on the earlier side of the recommended time range. Yogurt should have some body and be slightly firm when fully fermented. Always stir yogurt before serving. Yogurt starts to over-culture when whey begins to separate. Yogurt is over-cultured when curds and whey have completely separated. More time can always be added to under-cultured yogurt, even if it has been through the cooling cycle. However, once over-cultured, yogurt is no longer edible.
- Longer fermentation times will produce a tangier yogurt, but also aid in thickening. Strain yogurt overnight using a strainer lined with a coffee filter, for an ultra-rich and thick treat.
- Whole milk is recommended for making yogurt — avoid ultra-pasteurized milk. Fuller-fat milks produce thicker yogurts.
- When adding a flavor to yogurt, wait until 6 hours after the cooling process has begun. Flavors can also be added to individual portions as needed instead of to the entire batch. Certain flavors may shorten the shelf life of yogurt. Fruit mix-in flavors last longer and are better added to the entire batch, while sweeter syrups are best added to individual portions.
- Yogurt will be at its best and should be eaten within the first three days after completion. Yogurt can be kept for up to 8 days.
