Viili Starter

Now that the sourdough starter is well established and I've started cooking with it, it was time to get my other project going.  VIILI!!
I decided to use half and half for the starter so it's nice and rich.  My intention is to use the viili as a replacement for sour cream and yogurt and the piima that separates as salad dressing.  

First you add just 1/2 tsp of starter to 1/2 cup of half and half.  Then it sits for 1 to 2 days at room temp. After the starter has cultured in that time, it goes in the fridge for 6 hours to stop the culturing process.  Then I can start making yogurt or sour cream
 And now we wait!
