Frequently Asked Questions
My yogurt is gritty/curdled on the bottom!! What gives?
My first batch came out the same way, but I read somewhere that the base of the yogurt maker gets a little hot and you should put a small dishcloth between the jars and the unit to alleviate this problem. I tried it on my second batch and it came out perfectly. I use a 1/4" thick, crocheted dish cloth and have been using it for almost a year now. None of my other batches have come out curdled and I have been steadinly increasing the length of time that I parboil my milk over the last year, so over boiling does not seem to be the issue.
Jars: Do the jar lids screw off or pull off or what?
They screw off. Someone in the reviews said they leak. I have not had that problem. Some weeks later -- yes, I am finding they do leak a bit. I wrap the jars in a paper towel when I take them with me now. Another update: they don't leak if you make a thicker yogurt, using powdered milk along with the regular milk! If your yogurt is thinner and has that layer of whey on top, then they do leak.
Where do you get cheap starter / make your own: My Q: starter is just some acidophillus bacteria, right?
I found that you can also use a good quality Probiotic capsules (suppiment) for starters. For example the high quality (and sort of expensive) Mega Flora capsules can be used 2 for each half gallon (1 per quart). This way you get a whole bottle of starter capsules and the initial cost is spread out over many batches of home made yogurt. I just bring milk barely to a boil (Little bubbles on the side of the pot, which will be about 98C. Turn it off, I don't bother with the rapid cooling in a water bath (though there is nothing wrong with that). I never have boiled the incubation containers. I just use good plasticware (glass is even better). I do though, clean it well and take a little bit of cheap vodka or rum and rub the containers down with a wet clean cloth and then let it fully evaporate. Then when the milk is cool enough (about 112F). I open the 2 capsules into the plastic ware, add just a little bit of the milk so I can stir it up well, then add the rest of the 1/2 gallon of milk. Stir again, pop the top on and cover with thick towels or blankets (about 3 layers) and let it sit for 5 to 8 hours depending on level of tartness (even longer if you want it more tart). I've been doing this for years and never had a bad batch. Stuff tastes great too. Using the capsules like this may allow for a wider variety of cultures to be grown, though some may flourish better than others in milk at this temperature. Mega Flora also has some non-Lacto type cultures that are...
