I finally tried the crock pot yogurt yesterday and guess what...it utterly failed. After 14 hours I was left with a crockpot full of milk. Usually when something bombs this badly I get discouraged and don't return to the project for a long time. But I'm determined to give this another try. I followed the recipe exactly, so I don't think it was human error on my part. My intuition tells me the problem was that the milk wasn't warm enough for the 8 hours after the yogurt starter was stirred in. This time, instead of swaddling the crockpot with a blanket as the original recipe states, I'm going to switch the crockpot to the Warm setting to see if that will set the yogurt. See you in 14 hours...
