I will be adding this and the recipe to my original post, but I wanted all of you who have already tried the crockpot yogurt to note: Every other batch needs a new "starter" from the store. When I first make a batch, I use the 1/2 cup of store bought yogurt to add the live cultures to the warm milk. The second time I make it, I use a starter from the "crockpot yogurt" batch. But I've learned that the next batch (the third), needs a new starter from "store bought yogurt" otherwise it is very runny or MUCH less like yogurt tasting. So...every other batch. I've been buying a large (32 oz) container of yogurt (organic lasts longer than non-organic) for every other batch. Hope this keeps you from ruining a batch!
