My friend at Chez Bung told me how easy it is to make yogurt. As I have yogurt every day, we buy the big containers. I decided to give it a try and was thrilled how it turned out!
I followed the Chez Bung process with some slight changes. The first couple batches I did not use powdered milk. I still sometimes forget it. It turn out great.
At first, I drained the whey (excess watery stuff) from the finished yogurt to make it thicker and more Greek Yogurty (it's a fine word). Using powdered milk lessens the need to drain the whey but I often do anyway just to make it thicker.
There are only three steps to making yogurt. Five if you choose to drain it. It really is only two ingredients. Three if you add powdered milk. Adding powdered milk increases the yield and a very small cost.
