Pour the milk into a pot placed over a medium heat. Slowly heat to 80°C, or until frothy. Whisk every now and then to keep the milk from scalding at the bottom of the pot.


Pour the hot milk into a sterilised glass jar. Leave it to cool to 40°C.


Once the milk is cooled, add the yoghurt. Maintain the temperature at 40°C, for 2-24 hours depending on taste preference.
