Home Made Yogurt Problem

Posted by sjm1027 6 (My Page) on

I am making yogurt in a new Cuisinart Yogurt maker and when I made it overnight it seemed to have turned more solid than usual with lots of liquid.
I used Marshall M-50 rennet, very little.

The way this new machine works you just add well mixed skim milk, dry milk and rennet.

Recipe i used:
I used 4 cups skim milk
1/2 cup of dry fat free milk
1/16th tablet of rennet (Marshall M-50)

8.5 hours later I had a solid at the bottom of a lot of whey, Smells great, tastes great but it is the consistency of farmers cheese or cream cheese.

Please help if you can :) I would like a thinner yogurt with the same sweet taste.

Thanks
Steve

RE: Home Made Yogurt Problem

I use to make yogurt quite often, although not with a machine so I can't really advise about that.

Straining the yogurt for several hours/overnight will produce a thicker greek style yogurt. You can stop the straining when the yogurt is the consistency you want. Again, I don't know how the machine works though. You should be able to stir some whey back into it for a thinner yogurt.
