    to the previous commenter, the point is that you can keep on adding 1/3 of the youghurt to more milk to make more youghurt, cheaper than you can buy it. The initial youghurt is to obtain the bacteria required to make youghurt. Caveat Emptor, however, because not all "live" youghurts still contain live bacteria, so its better to pick a brand you have been recommended by someone who has already done this, as it will save you money and lessen your chances of ending up with a bowl of watery youghurt. As a final note, please cover the bowl with a non-airtight lid or teatowel as it is a breeding ground for bacteria if left exposed, but on the other hand the youghurt must be allowed to breathe.

    If you're adding yoghurt it's not homemade...
    I've got one, homemade stock! Just add OXO!
