Homemade Yogurt-Part 1

Yogurt is something I eat almost every day, yet somehow I have never made my own.  I have had a Moulinex Model #379 Yogurt Maker sitting around for about nine years.  For a while it was in an apartment that I once lived in, then it was stored in a rolling closet in my classroom.  I thought that I might use it for something biology related with my students…  I brought it home about a week ago when I found it behind a bunch of other supplies, and remembered it existed!  The recipe I tried can be found at 101 Cookbooks.  Since I didn’t have any low fat milk on hand, I used 2 c. whole milk, and 2 c. skim milk in place of the low fat milk.  Aside from that, I followed the recipe very carefully in hopes of having yogurt as an end product and not some sort of gross rotten milk mess…

After preparing and heating the yogurt ingredients, letting the ingredients cool to the proper temperature, pre-heating the yogurt maker, washing the jars, and setting the filled jars into the yogurt maker’s warm water bath, I’m wondering if the end product will be worth the effort.  I also should have planned this out differently, since the yogurt needs 4-8 hours (no more than 8 hours) in the warm water bath and then needs to be transferred to the refrigerator so it does not begin to spoil.  That means I need to wake up between 12:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.  to transfer the yogurt to the fridge.

    I have a friend who is desperate to figure out how to use her Moulinex Model 379 yogurt maker. Do you have the manual? Any chance you could upload it to the web or send it via e-mail???

    I too am looking for instructions for the Moulinex model 379 yogurt maker. I’ve been searching the web but to no avail, until I stumbled upon this. If you wouldn’t mind, I’d love to have the instructions e-mailed to me. Thanks so much.

    Hi!

    I have a yogurt maker just like yours and it’s very old.
    I’m trying to figure out which model it is, you wouldn’t happen to know, would you?

    Thanks!
