By J. Torres on January 31, 2005
I finally tried it out. I was skeptical after reading some of the reviews. I used 5 grams Cuisipro Donvier Yogurt Starter (one packet, only) and 32 oz. whole milk following the directions on the back of the Cuisipro Donvier Yogurt Starter package. I ran the Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker for 7 hours to incubate the yogurt. I think this is the best tasting yogurt I have ever had.

I tried this culture and liked it a lot. When I ran out, I went to the health food store thinking culture was culture. WRONG!! I am back again, and getting the good stuff.

This makes a yougurt that has the same nice bite as sour cream. I make it with 1% milk and only use 4 cups of milk and a slightly heaping 1/2 t of culture (this is about half the package as the package makes 2 liters).

This culture makes a soother yogurt than the other stuff. It makes your mouth water and alleviates the need for sugar. No it is not sweet, but the "bite" is wonderful.

I have used this starter six times and each batch was great. I only wish we could buy it for less money, maybe in a jar or bottle and get it out with a teaspoon. But I guess the delicate nature of the culture requires it to be packaged in these little individual envelopes.

I make yogurt using starters at least weekly. Generally I buy Yogourmet. This product produces a yogurt that tastes creamier than the yogourmet I've only made 2 batches, so it's difficult to be scientifically certain because even a 5 degree change in the milk temp can affect creaminess.

I use a Salton maker and have since 1997. The container actually will hold 5 cups, so I use 1 quart of half and half and 1 cup of water. The yogurt produced is quite dense. I'm on low carb which is the reason for the half and half. In 24 hours of culturing, most of the sugar is gone. If I want a less tart tasting yogurt, I place a towel over my yogurt maker. I don't know the chemical reason that a towel produces a less tart yogurt but it works. I've also used 2 cups of cream and 3 cups of water satisfactorily. I've tried reconstituted evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed) and that makes a really dense yogurt that I wasn't crazy about but my granddaughter who is 3 loves.

This makes a delicious yogurt and so does Yogourmet. But the price of both on Amazon is very high. You get 2 packets for your money (about $1.50 per batch of yogurt). Yogourmet gives you 10 packets (about $1.70 per batch). I buy the same Yogourmet at my local market for $3.59 -- or about 35¢ per batch.

I have made yogurt with a few tablespoons from the super market or with a previous batch, but sometimes I sweeten the whole batch with honey and forget to reserve some for the next batch. I probably use these 80% of the time now.
When I first started making yogurt, using these packets allowed me to vary the time and/or add powdered milk until I found my perfect batch! I don't add powdered milk - it makes it thicker but more tart and I prefer it a bit thinner after getting addicted to it in Europe last year.
These packets are the perfect tool for newbies - and a cupboard staple for the more seasoned yogurt-heads!

Used it twice so far, once with whole milk, once with 2% milk. Makes a firm, smooth yogurt either way, without the too-tart acid "bite" of some store-bought yogurts. Really nice, over fruit, with syrup or just plain "by its lonesome".

This starter creates a tangy, creamy yogurt. Each packet makes 2 litres. The batches I have made had a soft, creamy curd. The flavor was good. I gave it four stars, because I would have preferred a firmer curd. Each packet contains skim milk powder, sucrose, ascorbic acid, lactic bacteria (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Acidophilus). This culture needs additional skim milk powder or evaporated milk added to the milk to increase the protein for a firmer curd.

Wonderful to have these packets on hand for starting a batch of yogurt. Use when you have run out of your own live yogurt to start up a new batch. They can be used for all batches, but I tend to use them as a backup. When the supply is getting low, I buy more. That way I am always able to use the yogurt-maker.
