Incubate milk with added culture at 104 F to 108 F, using a thermometer to check the temperature. Incubation can be done in many ways; you can wrap a heating pad  around a jar, place the jar in a crock-pot or place it in the oven on low, but practice with water to be sure that a constant temperature is held. Use a thermometer to monitor it. Incubate for 6 to 8 hours, depending on taste.

Chill the yogurt before eating, being careful not to agitate or move the yogurt
