I have made some yogurt using the easiyo and sachet. I have read that rather than buying another sachet i can use some of the yogurt i already made and mix it in with long life milk then put in easiyo.
Has anyone done this and how did it turn out? Also how do I know if it's safe to eat and not full of bad bacteria?? Sorry if silly question!

It would be so much cheaper with long life milk only $1 per litre.

I make my own yoghurt all the time. I use raw milk though coz it's already full of good bacteria. I find it's way more runny but I strain it through a cheesecloth and keep the whey and have Greek yoghurt then. I always keep a good few tablespoons of yoghurt ready to make the next batch. I first started with store bought easiyo packet.

I make homemade yogurt with UHT milk (don't have an easiyo - I just incubate in a thermal bag). First lot I used a couple of tablespoons of natural yogurt with live culture (Jalna), but from then on just use a couple of tablespoons from the previous homemade batch. I also use a bit of milk powder to thicken - comes up as good a consistency as store bought natural yogurt

Yea you can use some of the old batch, it has the live culture in it instead of buying it in powder form

Sorry for being off topic, is there a lactose free option of easiyo?

I use long life soy milk and a few tablespoons of soy yoghurt in my Easiyo because I have a vegan diet. It works very well, but the amount of 'setting' can vary from batch to batch. I tried reserving some of my home made soy yoghurt to culture the next pot, but it didn't work for me.
i scald the pot and any utensils I use with boiling water then use newly opened long life soy milk to make sure no bad bacteria get in. I let the Easiyo sit for at least 24 hours to make the yoghurt.
