What you will need1/2 mug of the dressed buttermilk and 1 quart whole milk, 2 milk or 1 milk.
Why it works The culturing system is how buttermilk is made commercially, so it’s the system that’s going to give you the most natural flavor, thickness and the lactic acid that's the derivate of the bacteria turning the milk into buttermilk.
1. Start with dressed buttermilk Pour1/2 mug of the dressed buttermilk into the bottom of a lidded vessel that'll hold 6 mugs.( A standard Mason jar will do, or use anynon-reactive vessel with a lid.)
2. Stir to combine Pour in 1 quart of milk. Stir to combine the milk and buttermilk completely.
3. Leave at room temperature Place the lid on your vessel. Leave it out on the counter at medium room temperature.
4. stay 12 to 24 hours After 12 to 24 hours, the admixture will cake. The longer you leave it out, the thicker and nippy the buttermilk will be.

When you're down about half a mug, you may repeat the process by adding your manual buttermilk to fresh milk.
