How to make the Yogurt without boiling the milk?
Prepare the ingredients
1.2 litre of boiling water, our Yogurt Starter Culture sachet or 3-4 spoons of plain natural yogurt and 1 litre of non-flavored UHT milk or Sterilised milk. Using milk and starter yogurt with higher percentage of fat will make the yogurt thicker.
Pour 100ml of milk into the container.
Add the sachet or the 3-4 full spoons of yogurt and mix well.
Fill the container with the remaining milk until it reaches 1 litre and mix well. Close the container.
Place the container holder in the Yogurt Maker and push down!
Boil water and pour the water through the hole of the container holder until it reaches the top of the hole.
Place the container inside the Yogurt Maker and fill with more boiling water as shown in the image. Close the yogurt maker.
Leave undisturbed for 6-12 hours, then leave for 5+ hours in the fridge and enjoy!
Save 3-4 spoons of yogurt for your next batch! When eating the yogurt, whey will separate from it. You can either drain it out, or stir it in and consume! If yogurt does not set, try the method of boiling and see Questions, Tips and Tricks.
Natural flavor, sour flavor or sweet flavor?
You can adjust the flavor of your yogurt from natural, to sweet, to sour. Simply the longer you leave the yogurt in the Yogurt Maker, the more sour it will become. In 6 hours the yogurt will have a natural flavor; with every hour afterwards it will become more sour. Additionally, the longer you leave the yogurt in the fridge, the more sour it will become. If you enjoy your yogurt sweet, add powder sugar before placing in the Yogurt Maker or add natural sugar after the yogurt has set; in both cases stir well. The raw ingredients you use - milk and starter yogurt - will influence the taste.
