Is the whey from yogurt good for you?
The thing is, acid whey is useful, wholesome, and tasty —if the yogurt you buy has a bit of watery liquid at the top, that’s the whey. Simply stir it in. It has the same probiotics that yogurt does and it’s a good source of calcium. Acid whey can be refreshing as a cold drink, or useful as a brine or marinade.
How long is whey good for after making yogurt?

How much whey do you need to make yogurt?
Can I use yogurt whey to make more yogurt? YES! Add 2-3 tablespoons of whey to 2 quarts of heated and cooled milk. (More or less whey may also work–this is just what I do.)
Why is there so much whey in my homemade yogurt?
Some whey formation is normal when culturing. Drain the whey for a slightly thicker yogurt or stir it in, which will give you a thinner yogurt.
Can I freeze yogurt whey?
You can freeze whey to use later and to prolong its shelf life. Pour whey into an airtight container. Place the labeled whey in the freezer and use it within three to six months.
Can I use whey instead of milk?

Do you need to refrigerate whey?
If you make a large amount of cheese, chances are you will not be able to use all of the whey immediately. Refrigerate the airtight glass containers of whey. Use the whey within about 6 months.
How do you drain yogurt whey?
Place the yogurt in the middle of the filter(s). Cover the yogurt surface with plastic wrap (plastic touching the yogurt). Place the colander, bowl, and yogurt inside the refrigerator and let the excess liquid strain into the bowl through the colander.
How do you store yogurt whey?

Can you mix whey protein with yogurt?
Combining protein powder and yogurt is not only potentially tasty and nutritious, but also incredibly easy too. The FitDay website suggests using 1 cup of yogurt for every serving of protein powder, sticking with nonfat or low-fat yogurt and adding water if needed.
What happens if you use too much yogurt starter?
If too much starter culture is used, the bacteria will be crowded and run out of food (lactose) before the yogurt is set. Too much starter can produce a sour taste, rather than the desired tart taste.
