Homemade yogurt problem: alcohol??

Giblets Jun 15, 2009 09:11 AM

So I was made my weekly batch of yogurt, but this time, something happened: it smells and tastes of alcohol, a kind of fizzy offness. I figure that some yeast made its way in and fermented it. So my question is, is this still edible--that is, have I accidentally made kefir or anything salvageable?

    It's still edible you made kefir, because a yeast inoculated your yogurt.

      I've read that alcohol can naturally occur in the making of kefir. If you search kefir here on Chowhound and Wikipedia you'll find out more on that. I doubt that it's very much alcohol. Probably healthy as ever.
