Checklist for Perfection
Making yogurt with EasiYo is as easy as 1–2–3 ... Anyone can do it!
Here's a few things to ensure your success in making EasiYo Yogurt - anytime, anywhere!
Cool Water inside the Yogurt JAR
Ensure the water that you put into the yogurt jar is tepid-cold, and NOT warm and NOT very cold.
It's important the water in the jar is clean drinking water ie. treated water supply, cold-boiled or bottled water.
Mixing water and sachet contents
Half fill the empty yogurt jar with water.
Empty contents of a FULL sachet into the jar.
Replace jar lid and shake until all powder has visibly dissolved.
Remove jar lid and fill the jar to the very top with more water.
Stir with a fork if necessary, to completely dissolve all sachet contents into the water. Replace lid and shake again.
Baffle inside the Yogurt Maker
Push the baffle down inside the Yogurt Maker as far as it will go. Ensure it has the correct side facing upwards.
The baffle controls the heat required to activate all the beneficial lactic cultures present in EasiYo.
Boiling water inside the Yogurt MAKER
Pour boiling water to the line JUST at the top of the baffle (no further) and BEFORE putting the Yogurt Jar into the Yogurt Maker.
Too much hot water can destroy the cultures altogether or make the yogurt curdle.
(see weather climate variation note below)
Yogurt Setting Times
Leave the Yogurt Maker, without touching it, for at least 10 hours - or overnight until the Yogurt has set.
If the Yogurt has not set after 10 hours, just leave it in the Yogurt Maker for a few hours more.
DO NOT ADD any more boiling water.
You can leave the Yogurt setting for up to 24 hours without any harmful effects.
Do NOT refrigerate the Yogurt before it has completely set.
Made-up Yogurt will keep up to 2 weeks under refigeration (4 degrees C)
Cleaning your Yogurt Maker
Always clean the yogurt jar and lid thoroughly between use.
Just wipe it with a damp cloth - do not immerse the Yogurt Maker underwater.
Weather Climate Variation
In extremely HOT climates use a little less (1cm) boiling water inside the Yogurt Maker.
In extremely COLD climates, or when using chilled water from the fridge, top up with more boiling water around the sides of the yogurt jar inside the Yogurt Maker.
