Thermophilic means “heat-loving.” To make yogurt with a thermophilic culture, you must heat the milk to a temperature that will break down the milk proteins (about 160° to 180°F), then cool it back down to culturing temperature (around 110°F). The culture is added to the warm milk and kept at that temperature while it cultures; usually between 4 and 12 hours. Thermophilic cultures typically produce yogurt that is thicker than a yogurt from a mesophilic culture.
