    Is there any brand of Greek yogurt sold that is made with goat's milk instead of cow? I've just gotten in to this stuff and I'd love to see how much of a taste difference there is.

    I think it'd almost be easier to find goat milk and make it yourself using a recipe online, just because I don't really see it around in its traditional forms. That said, I found this US dairy:
    http://www.tastingtable.com/entry_detail/nyc/4838/Sheep_yogurt_goes_Greek.htm
    that makes it with the traditional sheep milk
    And this recipe for goat or a goat/sheep blend (or any other blend):
    http://www.ediblemanhattan.com/topi...chael-psilakis-mothers-homemade-greek-yogurt/
    I haven't tried it myself, just posting the first one that came up in a search. It sure skimps on the bacteria, not bothering to go into the differences. My understanding is that only a few yogurts available in the US have 5-6 active bacteria strains (as opposed to 1-2), as traditional Greek yogurt does, and I'm sure they differ in the strains used.
