This has worked well for me. I would be interested in getting other ideas on improvements. I learned how to culture yougart in the 70’s when the product was new and expensive.
I tried threelac about 5 years ago and went thru a mild die off experience. I decided this stuff was too expensive to use very much of so I decided to see if I could culture some. It says it feeds on nutritional yeast so I mixed some nutritional yeast in a gallon of water and added a packet of threelac. Let it sit for a couple of day at about 100 degrees F. The liquid took on a sour taste and gave me the same die off (gas and queasy stomach) that threelac did. I now take the stuff as needed. Maybe a half cup every few days. I know I need to take more if it gives me a queasy stomach. Depends on what I have been eating. Cornbread is one thing that causes me to need the stuff.
It seems to me that if the threelac probiotic will eat the nutritional yeast, it would eat any yeast it came across in the intestines.
My current recipe is two cups nutritional yeast flakes with a gallon of water and a packet of threelac. I imagine you could also use some of a prior batch as a starter but I found with yougart I got a better result using a new starter. I usually keep a made up jug in the refrigerator. I can pretty much eat or drink anything I want.
Hope this helps someone else keep the cost of threelac down. 5 years and it hasn’t killed me yet. I have bought a total of 5 threelacs in five years. My first purchase was a buy 3 get one free so I just bought the fifth box and thought I should post somewhere how well culturing threelac has worked for me.June 13, 2012 at 3:20 pm #84521

No one is paying for Threelac on this forum – so there’s no cost to keep down.

Why are you taking it?
