a few days ago I tried to make yogurt from ultrapasteurized whole milk, using a "seed culture" from organic yogurt I'd bought at the farmer's market about a week before. after one day in the afternoon sun it hadn't done anything so I refrigerated it overnight, then decided to put it in the oven with the heat off but the light on. two days later it had yogurtized but only partially. I scooped it out of the bowl into a canning jar and put it in the fridge, then poured the remainder of the liter of milk into the bowl. this time I left it out in the sun for two afternoons, just letting it sit outside in the covered pot in the interim. this time it finished in under 36 hours, using about 3 times as much milk. I count that as a win.
