Hello fellow Earthlings!I've recently found a great source of raw milk and cream not too far from my home (yeah!), and I've been making yogurt, among other things. It then occurred to me that in the…Continue

"This may defeat the point for you, but I also heat my milk to about 145, but I stir in some powdered milk as well as the culture, and it thickens the yogurt to a consistency my children enjoy more.  "

"What about straining it, like they do for Greek yogurt? Then you can save the whey (freeze it in ice cube trays) and add it to smoothies?"

"I also use raw milk, so I've experimented with finding the right temp. My yogurt is slightly less firm using a lower temp, but I found a happy medium that I like if I heat it to something around 145 - 150."

Anyone tried low-temp yogurt?

Hello fellow Earthlings!I've recently found a great source of raw milk and cream not too far from my home (yeah!), and I've been making yogurt, among other things. It then occurred to me that in the process of heating the milk to 180 degrees to make the yogurt, I was ... pasteurizing it!

I heard that the lower the temp, the more…See More

"There's a flower called "Bee's Friend" or "bienen-freund" (Phacelia tanacetifolia) which they say is amazing at attracting bees. I haven't tried it yet, but I will this year. Good luck!"
