With regard to the article about Making Yogurt at Home, I have two issues.  1)  The author recommends heating the milk "until it steams"..  This is way too arbitrary (especially if you are making the yogurt from raw milk).  I recommend using a double boiler (to avoid  burn on) and heat to a temperature of 165 F, then cool down to 98-100 F...prior to inoculating with the starter.  Heat treatment accomplished 2 things... it kills harmful pathogens and also  modifies the proteins in the milk to obtain a better gel or body/texture in the yogurt.  2)  The author recommends using yogurt as a starter.  Problem here is that, depending upon the age of the yogurt, the microorganisms may not be that active (or may not even be there).  Also, sugars and flavors are possible inhibitors to the growth of the bacteria.  I recommend obtaining a starter culture from a reputable supplier (see. and follow their instructions on how to grow your own active starter.. You don't want to have just sour slop which doesn't have the correct bacteria ..
