What is a Direct-Set culture?

A Direct-Set culture is a one-time-use culture and cannot be re-cultured (i.e., perpetuated beyond the single batch). Direct-Set cultures are often preferred by occasional yogurt makers as they require no maintenance or care. Simply keep the packet in the freezer and remove the portion for your recipe when it's time to make yogurt. Most Direct-Set cultures contain multiple doses to inoculate multiple batches.
