That liquid on top was one of the questions I've had, because some batches have had a very minimal amount and others had almost a tablespoon. But now that I know it's good for me I'm going to stir it in, I just hope it doesn't change the flavor.

This is a website I hit on, that I remember reading before I bought my yogurt maker, but after reading it again it's answer some questions that I've had since I started making my yogurt. It has some really good information.

Another thing about homemade yogurt.....

I noticed that the plain yogurt I used to make my batch this weekend doesn't say that it has "live cultures" and my mother mentioned something about that to me. So now I'm wondering if I shouldn't use that yogurt brand again and start looking for a different one.

I guess I don't know enough about yogurt and the live culture issue, I guess I better start doing a little research.

Thanks for any input.
Teresa

Just remember that the longer you leave it the tarter the yogurt will be. I still have not perfected my proccess yet. My thing is that I love the Activia yogurt, but the plain has been sweeten so I can't use it for starter.

Now I can't wait to order my yogurt maker. I will be using soy milk. However it sounds like a good idea to let it cook longer, I do like my yogurt firm.
Thanks everyone, I'll let you know how it turns out.

The sugar in plain yogurt comes from the sugar/lactose found in milk naturally. If you make your own yogurt using milk you'll still have that 'sugar' in there but it's nothing to really worry about since it's just a tiny amount. Not sure with soy milk i've never looked at the nutrition info on there. It would be perfectly safe to make your own yogurt using soy milk though. With my yogurt maker I noticed that the longer I let the yogurt cook in the machine the firmer it is and I do use store bought plain yogurt for starter. I like to make puree's of fruit and stir that into my yogurt with a touch of honey. YUM!

I eat alot of yogurt but I don't like how's there is so much sugar in them. If you buy that machine can you make yogurt sugar free?

FOXEYROXEY - I think it's extremely easy to make and clean up. You just heat your milk to boiling and then let it cool to a certain temp and add your starter yogurt, mix, put in the jars and start. I will usually start it before I go to bed and it's ready when I get up in the AM. I don't eat it the first day because it would still be warm (YUCK!!), because I only eat my yogurt for my AM 9:30-10:00 "meal/snack".

My yogurt will usually have a clear liguid on the top and it has varied in amount on each batch. I know I have a good batch when the yogurt is firm and there is very little liquid and I'm not sure what is making the difference between batches. The batch this AM turned out perfect.

I have noticed that using a plain yogurt starter from the store, instead of one of my jars of homemade yogurt as a starter, does make my yogurt turn out firmer.

Thanks for your input so far. I did look up online and was able to tell my husband that I'm OK to be making it with soy milk. He still is skeptical though.

Good Morning Ladies!!!

Funny to see this post today since I just bought my first yogurt maker over the weekend!!! I tried making a batch of almond yogurt but am not sure if it worked or not...it just finished processing for 10 hours and is now cooling!!! It seems to have separated and it quite watery!!! I'm not sure if I did something wrong or if this is just what the end product is supposed to look like!!!

My next attempt will be with soy milk so any input would be welcomed!!!

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Jackie!!!

Just wondering if the homemade yogurt that I make with soy milk is ok health wise? My husband voiced his concerns when he realized I was making it with a non-dairy "milk" and got me wondering. I've been making it for a couple of months and I haven't felt any ill-effects from it, so I think I'm ok, but I thought I'd see if any of you guys had an informed opinion.
I'll also be checking it out on the web.
Thanks,
Teresa
