yoghurt
« on: July 25, 2012, 10:08:19 am »
I have been making my yoghurt successfully for a while now but dont ever get to use it up before it goes off.

I am thinking of trying to half the recipe.  Any suggestions regarding reducing the cooking time would be appreciated.  Would I just half the cooking time or maybe 3/4?

cheers all  :)

Auds, how much are you making now?  2 litres?  I only make 1 litre at a time and I follow Andi's method.

Place milk into TM bowl.  Heat for 15min/90C/speed 2-3.
Allow to cool until 37C light comes on, then add culture.
Mix 2 mins/speed 2. 
Pour into incubator (or thermoserver if that's what you use) and follow usual instructions.  :)

No, I shouldn't think so Fundj, I'm just following what was posted about 2 years ago when I first started making it.  

I can remember firstly cooking for 20 mins at 80C, then cooking further 20 mins after the culture was added, but then was told that wasn't necessary (either by Andi or Thermomixer, sorry I can't remember now and am unable to locate the post).  
The new instructions were as above and I've been doing it that way since.  If it's working for you at 10 mins then I can't see a problem.  Andi would know, she's very knowledgable about this sort of stuff, though I haven't seen much of her recently.  :)

If you are not using it all Auds why not make half into yogurt cheese ?
