Instructions for making Yogurt Plus

Makes: 1 - 1.25 quarts
Preparation time: about 30 minutes preps, 6-8 hours culturing

You’ll need:

  • A yogurt maker
  • 32 fl oz. - 42 fl oz. (1 quart - 1.25 quarts/ 1 liter - 1.25 liters) of pasteurized dairy milk (skim, 1%, 2%, whole milk, or half and half), depending on your yogurt maker. Goat milk may yield a thin result.
  • 1 sachet of Yogurt Plus starter culture (or 2 tablespoons of yogurt made with Yogurt Plus)
  • A thermometer


  1. Place the milk in a saucepan and gently heat to 180°F. Once the temperature is reached, remove from heat and let it cool to 100°F-110°F.
  2. Whisk in 1 sachet of Yogurt Plus starter culture. This distributes the good bacteria throughout the milk.
  3. Place the milk in yogurt jars without lids and incubate in your yogurt maker for 6-8 hours. A consistent, lukewarm temperature is paradise for all the good bacteria, and promotes their growth.
  4. Remove the jars from the yogurt maker, close the lids, and place the jars in the fridge to cool and set for at least a couple of hours. As the yogurt cools, it will get even thicker! Store in the fridge.

Note: Store the starter culture in the refrigerator or freezer until you're ready to use it.

  • Reculture: To make a new batch, repeat these instructions but use 2 tablespoons of yogurt made with Yogurt Plus as your starter.

    Plant-Based yogurt plus for Coconut Yogurt

    Posted by Shawn Bork (Essential Kitchen) on 2023 Mar 12th

    This product is absolutely amazing!!! In November of 2022, We decided to give Cutting Edge Cultures Yogurt Plus a try for our plant-based meal prepping business. We make our own dairy free yogurt, and needed something to boost the flavor. Since then, our yogurt has really improved int taste & quality. It is very easy to use, and comes with a packet inside to explain best ways to use their product. I could not be happier with the outcome of our yogurt, considering our customers say it doesn't event taste like coconut!!! Thank you Cutting Edge Cultures for allowing us to use your product for our plant-based yogurt. Chef Shawn & Essential Kitchen Team

    yogurt plus - best yogurt ever!

    Posted by Wendy Spalding on 2023 Feb 23rd

    I am so pleased with this starter culture. It makes much better yogurt than anything I have been able to buy in the shops. Delicious and healthy at the same time. Plus it works out cheaper and more environmentally friendly than buying in yogurt.
