Yogurt Maker - Where to buy in Khon Kaen and tips on making naturally

Recommended Posts

Would like to buy a yogurt maker 10 or 12 servings in Khon Kaen if possible.

If not in Khon Kaen does anyone know where to buy online, not to import but from Thailand for delivery ?

 

Yes, I known making yogurt without the aid of electricity is supposed to be easy here but  I have had very varying results.over the past two years.

Any tips on how to make naturally in winter would be greatly appreciated.

Finally has any one tried making yogurt with pure almond or coconut milk or any non animal milk ?

This works real nice -- just get a large flat bottom plastic bowl from BigC instead of those silly little jars.

Thanks for the link.

Are you saying get a flat bottomed bowl or does the Severin maker works well ?

Where to get the Severin product from, is it online shopping ?

The Severin maker I bought from Verasu worked very well (at least it did until it stopped working but that was years later).

I  bought it from Verasu online. They ship EMS. The thing about the bowl is I preferred to use one large bowl rather than those small individual glass jars. Around a one liter flat bottomed bowl from BigC worked fine. I ended up just mixing a Dutchie plain yogurt from 7-11 and the 100% 800 ml whole milk.

The thing about the yogurt maker is that it keeps a constant temperature which results in a real smooth yogurt.

Sorry for late read / reply of your post, have been helping someone move house.

Did you try making yogurt from plant milks and not animal milks ?

I just bought a smaller yogurt maker from lazada that I can fill with a medium bottle of milk (looks like it's 830g).  It cost 320 baht, and I'm very pleased with the purchase.  I've been making homemade greek yogurt to use in various recipes (tzatziki sauce tastes great) and I've been able to add 1 more farang food to my Issan diet.  The wife enjoys it as well.

Thanks for the posting.

Glad you are having success in making Greek style yogurt, is that with traditional sheep milk or cows milk ?

Can be used as an alternative for labneh in Lebanese dishes or in Indian lassi.

 

I have been vegan for many years and have yet to make a good vegan yogurt that replaces either Greek or labneh.  I managed to make from soy milk last summer without a yogurt maker but it was even more hit and miss than making with cows milk.   Soy milk still tastes like soy milk when in yogurt form.

Have you ever tried making vegan yogurt from other milks such as Almond ?

i thought you just put a few drops of lemon juice in boiled milk...let it sit for an hour or so...and stick it in the fridge.

I've only made it with normal cow milk from Tesco.

Under the theme of striking while the iron is hot (okay, hijacking the thread), does anyone have a scheme/ equipment for making sour cream? 

 

One that works with indigenous ingredients as most of the plans/ recipes posted online require ingredients that cost almost as much as the local brands of sour cream.  I miss buying liters of sour cream for what we pay in BKK for a half pint...

Electrical equipment you may be able to buy or just off the shelf items but unfortunately you will, as far as I know, still need cream and buttermilk or yogurt.   To this you add lemon or vinegar ( even balsamic will do ).

 

The following text may help.

 

How to Culture Cream Using Alternative Starter Cultures

While sour cream is traditionally made with a Sour Cream Starter Culture, there are other ways to culture cream, to make a similar product. When using a different culture, there may be variations in flavor, so try a few and pick the one you like best.

1. Use Cultured Buttermilk or Countertop Yogurt

Cultured buttermilk or mesophilic (countertop) yogurt is convenient to use as starter for culturing cream, as well.

Use 1 tablespoon yogurt or buttermilk per cup of cream. Culture as you would buttermilk or yogurt, according to the instructions included with your particular starter culture.

2. Use Milk Kefir Grains or Finished Kefir

Milk kefir grains or finished milk kefir can be used to make Kefir Cream, a good substitute for sour cream.

Use 1 tablespoon finished milk kefir per cup of cream or 1 teaspoon grains for up to 4 cups of cream.
