You can add dry milk powder if you want the yogurt to be thicker. Place the container inside the yogurt makers and connect the device to the power. The fermentation will start and you have to disconnect when the time is done.

You may leave the yogurt maker for 6-12 hours to get a perfectly fermented yogurt.
