Ask LTan ( Lena ) - she has been very successful with her joghurt using only a thermo flask.


So sorry friends, I did not see this until tonight.

I just use any type of live yoghurt (1 tbsp) with 1 tsp of milk powder to 1 litre of warm milk. Stir the yoghurt and the 1 tsp of milk powder together, add a little of the warm milk and mix before adding it to the warm milk. Pour it into the wide mouth thermo flask. It will set in 7 to 8 hours.

Hope this will be of some help.

Lena, it's alright. I've been very successful making the yoghurt. I just pour everything into a container and the next day, it's all set.

Me too. Ever since learning how to do it here, I've been doing it every other day. I just pour into small plastic containers with lids or even the commercial yoghurt cups and let it set. No problems at all Very Happy

I intend to make yoghurt using your method. But first, as I do not have milk powder, do you think milk alone will do? Thank you.

I have made yogurt without milk powder but I think adding the milk powder will give the yogurt a richer taste and firmer texture.

Thanks. I made it! So, from the product, I kept 1 spoon and make another for the next day. But with repetition, will the live culture be strong enough or thins out?

Zermatt-gal, it is true like you said that the cultures will decline in strength after several cycles. Probably, you will want to use a new starter after a couple of batches just to be sure that it sets up properly. Smile

I've been making yogurt for almost a year already. Mine was given by my dad's friend who is staying in KL. It's live culture. You only need to add in full cream milk in packet form then leave at room temperature to ferment for 24 hours after which you sieve out the milk and the residue is the culture. Wash the culture then put it into a plastic mug, pour in the milk and leave it to ferment again. It only feeds on full cream milk. All the utensils used have to be in plastic or ceramic form. Anybody heard of this culture before?

Hi Jace. Sorry for the late reply.
Yes you may leave the thermo flask at room temperature.

It does not really matter whether 1 tbsp or 2 for me it still set. Maybe it will take longer but I did not take note of that. If I see it still not set I would leave it longer.

Good luck.
