I have to agree that there is a lot of "variability" to this simple recipe. However, rating this one a "5" because of the informative link that was provided below. It explains the whole process to make yogurt (makeyourownyogurt site). The info there can also saved in adobe format. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Here is a very similar recipe that achieves predictable results every time out, with no more work or special equipment: http://www.makeyourownyogurt.com/ item not reviewed by moderator and published
