 Brod and Taylor Folding Proofer and Slow Cooker


  • 2 quart / L Milk
  • ¼ / 60 cup / ml Plain yogurt with live cultures


  • Using either the microwave or stovetop, heat the milk to 200 °F (93 °C). If using the stovetop, stir frequently to prevent scorching. Once the milk reaches 200 °F (93 °C), remove it from the heat. Cover and keep warm for ten minutes.
  • Uncover the milk and allow it to cool until it is 115 °F (46 °C) or lower. For faster cooling, set the container of milk into a pan or sink full of cold water. While the milk is cooling, set up the Proofer with the rack in place and the temperature at 120 °F (49 °C).
  • To inoculate the milk, add the yogurt with live cultures to a small bowl. Gradually add enough warm milk to the bowl to thin the yogurt and stir until smooth. Add the liquefied culture back into the larger container of milk and stir gently to combine. Pour the milk into culturing jars, cover the jars and set in the Proofer.
  • Culture at 120 °F (49 °C) for an Hour, then Lower the Heat to 86 °F (30 °C). Set a kitchen timer for one hour, then turn the heat down to 86 °F (30 °C). It’s important not to let the yogurt remain at 120 °F (49 °C) for more than an hour in order to avoid the whey separation and lumpy texture that can come from culturing too hot.
  • Set Aside Yogurt to Make the Next Batch. After about three hours (one hour at 120 °F (49 °C) plus two at 86 °F (30 °C)), remove enough yogurt to serve as the starting culture for your next batch of yogurt. Store it in the refrigerator and consider labeling it “contains lactose”. It is important to remove some yogurt early so that your culture will still have enough food (lactose) to last until it is time to make your next batch. When the culturing is complete, chill the yogurt thoroughly in the refrigerator.


  • Whisking the milk to cover the surface with bubbles will prevent the milk from forming during heating and cooling.
  • For the best heat circulation and most accurate culturing temperature, arrange the jars so that they are not directly over the center of the Proofer.
  • It is convenient to include one small container among your larger culturing jars so that it can be easily removed early to serve as the seed culture for your next batch of yogurt.
Culture for a Total of 19 Hours. To allow the yogurt cultures to consume all of the lactose in the milk, culture for a total of at least 19 hours (one hour at 120 °F (49 °C) and 18 hours at 86 °F (30 °C)). This was when tests showed that the acidity had stopped rising, indicating that all of the available lactose was consumed by the culture. Chill the yogurt thoroughly in the refrigerator after cultivation is complete.
