Yogurt Debacle

I just wanted to give a quick rundown of my latest batch of yogurt.  Since it’s been so hot, I decided to give the crockpot method another shot.  I added a half gallon of my usual creamline milk and followed the usual instructions.  I did not have enough of either store bought yogurt or cultures, so I used some of both as my starter…one packet of cultures and 1/4 c of Stonyfield whole milk yogurt.  My yogurt incubated for about 7 hours.  The result was a runny gooey mess.  I used it to make smoothies all week.  I’m not sure what went wrong.  Perhaps the crockpot/towel method just doesn’t hold in enough heat?  Perhaps Stonyfield isn’t the best brand to use as a starter?  I think I’ll stick with my cultures from here on out.
