I've been experimenting with homemade yogurt for about a year, and today's bIatch was the best so far.
3 quarts milk
1 quart almond milk
60g unflavored, undenatured whey protein
1/3 cup live culture yogurt or powdered starter (I always use yogurt from the previous batcht or chobani or oikos, plain).
I combined the first three ingredients in the crockpot, using a whisk. Heat the milk until it's bout 185 degrees ( about 3 hours on high in my crockpot). Cool to about 110 degrees ( anywhere between 95 and 115 is fine ). Whisk in live yogurt or starter.
Wrap crockpot in a big towel, set on a heating pad set on low for 4 to 12 hours (or until desired thickness and flavor, up to 24 hours).
