After 8-10 hours, pour yogurt into a yogurt strainer. (If you don't have a yogurt strainer you can use nut milk bags or cheesecloth) Allow to strain for 15-24 hours in the fridge or on the counter. The longer you wait, the thicker the yogurt.

The nutrition facts below are based on using fairlife 2% milk, Face 5% starter and after the whey has been strained. We strained off 2 1/2 cups of whey which is about 3.75 carbs per serving. That's why the carbs are listed as .95 per serving.
To figure out the nutrition on your batch, combine nutrition facts for all ingredients. (add all calories together, all carbs, all fat and all protein)
After the straining stage, measure out whey and subtract that nutrition from the starting totals. 1 cup of whey is 60-65 calories, .25 grams of fat, .5 grams protein and 12 carbs.
Make sure you save 2-3 tablespoons for the next batch. You should get 4-5 batches before you need to start over. You can freeze your starter cultures.
