Yoghurt, Oven Method - Temperature
« on: December 17, 2011, 10:08:20 PM »
Hello all, i will be making yoghurt for the first time as i am new here and this hobby.

I will be doing the overnight oven method and i am concerned about step # 2 which say to warm the milk to 50 degree centigrade.  I'm just thinking that this might be a clerical error that have been overlooked and that the correct temperature should be 85 degree centigrade as it is in step # 3 of the water bath method.

I'm not trying to be a wise guy here but just using some logic and also trying to avoid failure on a first try.

Nope, sorry, I think it is the lower for the oven method as the milk with culture once placed in the much hotter oven stays at that temp for a much longer time than the other methods. Sorry about that.

I found none of the methods great so ended up buying this simple machine.

What did you do and how did it turn out?
