I have never made yoghurt with carnation before only ever used pasturised or UHt milk , will have to give it a go. I used to bottle feed my daughter on carnation milk when we were in Northern Ireland as the local shop did not sell baby milk and we were not allowed to use the public transport to go to the nearest town.

That's how I used to make yogurt, actually. The larger can of Carnation, refilled with water (i.e., diluted) and then some starter natural yogurt, stirred together, and poured into the six yogurt pots. At that time, I didn't use any dried milk.

Thank you, I did mean evaporated milk, sorry.  We do have it here, I like to keep some in the pantry, that and dry milk because when you live in the boonies it isn't always an option to run to the store.  I am going to have to get brave and go down to the spider room and find that yogurt thermos thingy and try making some.  One other question.  Do you save your starter from each batch you make, or do you always add fresh starter from store bought yogurt?

My yogurt maker arrived yesterday, having spent some time working out the instructions ( all in French) mine says to use a new starter every third batch.

my yoghurt maker has 7pots , I keep one each time to start the next lot, but you do have to replace it every few times, yoghurt usually goes very liquidey after about 4 times.

I use a fresh starter every so often when I see a slight pink growth on top of the last yogurt, or I do see them getting thinner. This can be about every fourth batch.

I have an 8 pot setup (2 by 4 pots) so I save one to start the next batch, and there is a weeks supply from the other seven.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Sorry, I put a two Pint Jug, by mistake, it should be a one Pint.  The Skimmed Milk Powder, makes it firmer, and richer, would not leave it out.
