*Caspian Sea Yogurt is a fermented milk product also called matsoun or matsoni is also known as Caucasian sour cream or Bulgarian Yogurt. CSY has two major bacteria; lactococcus cremoris and gluconobacter sp. Lactococcus cremoris turns milk into yogurt with or without oxygen present, and results in the yogurt's unique viscosity. Gluconobacter sp. multiplies only in the presence of oxygen, and helps lactococcus cremoris multiply. Lactococcus cremoris multiply most at 20 C (68 oF) to 30 C, (86 oF) which falls within the range of normal room temperatures and does not have to be cooked or go through lengthy preparation as regular yogurt. SO you don't even need a yogurt maker!
