Yogurt

Postby Cittasanto » Fri Jan 27, 2012 12:05 pm

Anyone make yogurt? or got some advice on how to do it?


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

My mother used to make yogurt. She used a KRUPS yogurt machine like this

But unfortunately I don't know how she did it. I'll ask her.

Hi Cittasanto,
I sometimes make yoghurt using this Easiyo system:
http://www.easiyo.com/the-easiyo-system/index.html
In fact, I have four of them and make 4L of yoghurt a day when I am catering.

Its cheap and really easy.

In Australia you can get the kit for approx $25. The starter sachets are a few dollars each. But once you make one batch you can use a desert spoon of yoghurt as starter culture for your next and subsequent batches. The only issue is if you wish to make flavoured yoghurt it only works if you use the sachets or add the flavouring after you've made a batch of plain yoghurt.
kind regards,

Ben

Seems to be quite easy though... when I remember right my mom never used "yogurtstarter" like in that video, when there was only one yogurt cup left she used that to make new ones. Otherwise she used yogurt from the supermarket.
I guess the machine provided the right temperature.

best wishes, acinteyyo

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

I have made it in the past but the household now doesn't eat enough to make the effort worthwhile and I have gone back to buying it.
Not that it's hard - as others have said, milk + culture + warmth is all you need.
There's a great fact sheet here which adds the science to what others have said:

I had checked a few, but unfortunately the site I used when I chefed doesn't have a method on it??

I followed the instructions on temp, but I used Whole Milk, Cream, Milk Powder & Sugar, but I think I left it alone too long so the temp went to low?

that would be the only thing I change really is how I look after it, particularly at the moment with the weather being cold.

Think of it like bread dough. Too cool, and the culture won't grow; too hot, and you kill it. The Middle Way is the way to go!

Yoghurt with blackberries. Yoghurt with honey. Yoghurt with real maple syrup. I am definitely going to make yoghurt.

For those with lactose intolerance ( fairly common, gives rise to flatulence and excema) excellent yoghurt can be made by using goats or sheep milk.
Vegans can get many of the health benefits of yoghurt ( although not its deliciousness ) by taking probiotic Acidophilus capsules, which helps repopulate the gut with "good" bacteria which boost the immune system. Particularly important after a course of antibiotics.

actually can soya or rice drinks be turned into yogurt for vegans?
