Step by Step Method

Step 1

Boil the milk in a saucepan to medium heat until you see a skin forming on the top of the pot.

Step 2

Pour about 4 quarts milk into a plastic or glass container, and let it cool down at room temperature.

Step 3

Meanwhile, mix the yogurt starter with 2 Tbsp. of milk so that is easily poured. The yogurt will come out sour if you pour the yogurt starter in the hot milk or if you use more yogurt starter.

Step 4

After you put the lid on the container, cover it with a plastic bag and a clean towel or blanket. Do not open the container before the recommended hours once you covered because you will stop the fermentation.

Step 5

After 3 1/2 hours open and place the container in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Step 6

Always save some yogurt to use as a starter for your next batch in the refrigerator in a small container.
