the sweet/sour level can be tweaked by either the temp or time...maybe if you reduce the heating time a little or something...my brain is fuzzy, but I know there's directions somewhere about tweaking the sweetness if you're a perfetionist or have finicky kids (mine won't eat it at all.... ...hoping to have luck if I make it very mild...)

This is a really good website...I want to try it with the crockpot since I don't have a gas stove with a pilot light. Apparently thought the pilot light makes it the right temp. My friend does it all the time with a cheep yogurt maker she got and loves it.

Default Re: Yogurt making in the crockpot

It didn't work for me. But then I realized that the yogurt was already falling apart because it was 4 days past the expiration date . I did measure the temp and it was 190. Woah! That's a lot higher than 90 to 120! :headbang These new crockpots! Argh! I can't even select warm on my crock pot. Am I just toast for this method?

I just saw this - I do this all the time now. Ds finds my homemade yogurt too thin, however (but less sour than the Stoneyfield Farm we started with), so I strain about half of it and mix the strained with the regular to make the right consistency. He also likes vanilla in it. We use raw honey for sweetening.

I have 2 crockpots, and my smaller one is like that - too darn hot. You could put your too-hot one on the low setting and stick a dowel or wooden spoon under the lid to keep it from getting too hot. My bigger crockpot, ironically, doesn't get hot enough so I have to put a towel over it to make it hotter. The bigger one is the one I use for yogurt.

I hope this works for you! It saves so much money!
