I was going to caution that if you are not used to plain (unsweetened unflavored) yogurt it may not be what you are expecting.

My yogurt has come out quite sour. I am still trying to perfect a fairly thick not too sour yogurt.

I have decided for thickness I will just drain it.

Still playing with the sourness. Next I am going to try a different starter bacteria. To date all my yogurt has been made off of a Stonyfield yogurt I bought. I have read that the Stonyfield cultures lead to a more sour yogurt.

So what was the problem with the taste.

The yogurt generally sweetens up well with honey for the kids. We also add cinnamon or fruit sometimes along with the honey.

I am currently using vege rennet. Not really because I care that it is not animal but because that is all I could find readily.

I have read that the animal rennet works better but I great curds from my cheese so seems to work fine.

And sorry bout the pics. I got a Ipod Touch for Christmas. THe pics are on it and I couldn't figure out how to post them from the MBT mobile app. SO I need offload to upload...
