Homemade Greek Yoghurt?
posted at 7/29/2009 10:29 AM EDT
Being on antibiotics for so long, one of my staples has been/is yoghurt. I tried them all - and have become addicted to the Greek kind. It is so much smoother and a lot less tart. Have any of you posters ever tried to make it at home?
I have a yoghurt maker, and I am quite a professional to make the normal kind. I have tried to do the same w/ the Greek yoghourt - but it does not come out "right".
Any Greek posters, who can help?

One comment I would make is that the original bacteria stock that you use is important. So if you like a certain yogurt, you should should use some of it as your base. If I like a certain yogurt, I leave it out at room temperature for at least 2 weeks to cultivate. Then I use it as my base. Of course if it develops any visible mold, throw it out.
Or do you buy special stock for Greek yogurt?
