In a large saucepan add the milk and bring to a boil.
Once the milk is at a boil, turn the heat off and leave to cool. The optimal temperature should be between 90°F and 120°F.
In a large glass bowl thoroughly mix a few tablespoons of the warm milk with the tablespoon of yogurt. Then slowly pour the rest of the milk into the glass bowl and mix again.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a tea towel. Place the bowl in a warm and undisturbed place for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Transfer the yogurt to the fridge where it will keep for 7-10 days.
