Sheep Milk Yogurt

MissyMorgan Apr 3, 2013 09:13 PM

Have been making homemade yogurt from sheep milk. I have been using the Y5 culture from new england cheesemaking. Smooth, thick non tart yogurt. I want to know if you can add sugar or vanilla etc before incubating the yogurt? Any info would be helpful.

    You can steep a vanilla bean in the milk during the initial heating prior to making the yogurt, but I would not use any extracts containing alcohol. As for the sugar, I would not add any until you have completed your fermentation.
