Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 servings


  • ½ gallon milk
  • ½ cup approximately leftover yoghurt from a previous batch or store bought yoghurt or 1 yoghurt starter packet


  • Heat the milk in a sauce pan until it reached about 108º. Remove pan from heat a few degrees before your reach 108º because the milk will continue to warm up even after you have taken it off of the stove.
  • Add the yoghurt or starter packet and gently stir just enough to mix it in. Pour into a leak proof storage container.
  • Place in a warm location for about 6 to 8 hours or overnight.
  • After 6 to 8 hours check to make sure that the yoghurt has begun to set up. Then refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before eating.
