I made a batch yesterday and let it ferment for approx 30 hours.
 
The problems are these........
 
1. The yogurt maker got too hot! It stayed at 115- 117 degrees in the middle of the batch.
-I understand the live culture may now be dead, but is it safe to eat the yogurt?
 
2. The yogurt has a clear / yellowish liquid that surrounds it. Is this normal? 
 
Thanks

117 is fine. The bacteria don't die until about 125-130 from what I read. And even if they did die it would be safe to eat but you wouldn't get the probiotic benefit.

I noticed the liquid too, I think it's normal.

Are you doing the SCD diet?

 Yep, I almost gave up.
 
Well actually a few days ago I got fed up and drank 4 beers, 2 packs of Easy Mac, and a hot dog with the bun......... nono
 
This diet was horrible to start, I made things worse by eating a pound of almond flour in 2 days. My guts hated me! I NEEDED something crunchy / bread!!
 
I have since developed a love for SCD yogurt I was making in my oven. A little bit of honey, chruched pineapple, and sprinkle with almond flour!  Its good!!! Im now following the diet 100% with no problems. as a matter of fact I dont think I could even eat any illegal food right now. I just simply dont want it.
 
I think another savior for me is Welches Grape juice. Whenever I get a sweet tooth I drink about 1/2  glass stright and follow it up with water.
 
Im down to 2-3 bm's a day with 20mg of prednisone. Once I wean to 10mg of pred I start LDN. Hopefully the combo will keep me stright for a while...

any liquid on top is fine/normal. just stir it in. if it bothers you then scoop it out.

sounds like you made it through the detox redspot 321. i had a bad sweet tooth until i did the makers diet and now i see cakes, chocolate, and all kinds of sweets and the desire to eat them simply isnt there any more. and i know that if i do eat them, i am very sensitive to sugar now from not having it my system on a regular basis for over a year that a little bit will make me physically ill. so that helps me avoid them if i do get a craving.

Thanks for posting the lucyskitchen.com link, Ingrid! I think it's nice to order from them (here in the US) since they're trying so hard to help folks with CD/UC. I saw a company called Lakeland in the UK that makes a very similar one. Can you order from them?

I ordered mine from Lucy's Kitchen and spoke with a super nice lady who took my order. She herself has/had UC and knew Elaine Gottschall personally--quite well. They were friends for years and stayed at each other's homes on numerous occasions (one on east coast, one on west coast). Her love for Elaine was evident in her voice and glowing words about her. She said she was an amazing woman who worked tirelessly until the day she died to help folks with this.

On a side note, I just made my very first batch of SCD legal yogurt with the Yogourmet yogurt maker I purchased. The process was simple and the yogurt is amazing!!! I think next time I might try adding some half and half (as butterfat suggested, I think) for an even creamier texture and amazing flavor.

i always make plain yogurt, but sometimes i'll add in some raw cream (when i can afford it). it increases the fat content (ie available energy since i greatly restrict my carbs from grains) and it gives the yogurt a richer flavor.

Okay, another yogurt question here... I spoke too soon. My first batch of yogurt has great texture, everything was simple, but after feedback from my kids we've decided its flavor is a bit bitter. Is this normal? Will adding cream in the next batch help this? I used organic whole milk and the Yogourmet starter. Any and all thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!

(So they did return all my vitamines I had ordered from US, and I had payed all of when I ordered).... [img]/community/emoticons/devil.gif[/img] Ingrid


Oh my gosh!!! Did you get your money back that you spent on the vitamins???

Wow...I didn't realize there was an "old Sovjet state of Norway". If only government would stay out of our lives...

We did make the yogurt into a smoothie and it was really good!!! It took a bit more honey and fruit than when I was using a store bought plain yogurt, though, but that's okay! Thanks for the tips!!

i really like the plain yogurt i make with whole organic milk and the yogourmet starters. i dont find it bitter. but then my taste buds are very different from a lot of peoples since i hardly eat sugars or grains now. i have since found that i like bitter foods, like black coffee, so perhaps i just dont notice the bitter taste or find it appealing. but like anything else, the more you eat it the more you become accustomed to it and eventually like it (or at bare minimum learn to tolerate it). this was how it was for me when i first started goat milk yogurt.
