Yogurt Starter - What to make?
« on: October 09, 2017, 04:49:30 PM »
I recently did a Taleggio from a recipe that called for using cultured yogurt as the starter. The cheese turned out fantastic. I used raw milk yogurt and froze the unused amount into cubes. What other cheeses can I use this starter for??  Anything that requires a Thermophilic?

I don't have personal experience - but I would say that any thermo cheese could be made from yogurt, though something like an Emmentaler will also need some proprionic shermanii, and some types would benefit from LH100 to add some nuttiness.
