How to Make Yogurt

2. Heat the Milk

First, preheat the oven to the lowest setting and then turn it off. This will ready the environment for later. You are now going to heat the milk on the stovetop until it reaches 185°F but do not let it go higher. You are dealing with fragile bacteria that you want to keep happy and healthy. Once it reaches the required temperature remove from heat and transfer two cups of the warmed milk to a bowl.  Add your 1/2 cup of starter yogurt to the warm milk and mix well. Pour this back into the heated full pot of heated milk and stir well.
