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 do not require any maintenance or care. Simply keep the packet in the freezer and remove the portion for your recipe when it's time to make yogurt. A box of Traditional Yogurt Starter contains starter culture to inoculate approximately eight batches of yogurt.
