Thinking of trying homemade yogurt; 3 questions first

You can definitely use ultra-pasteurized milk. I live in Korea and it's basically all they have here. It makes a great, thick yogurt just as regular pasteurized milk. The key is temperature control. Since you're using skim milk, you won't get the same texture but I'm interested to know how it turned out since your skim milk seems to be enhanced. Here's a link to my blog where I outline exactly how to make yogurt using a crock pot and a rice cooker. It's really easy! I hope it helps! http://insunee.blogspot.com/2011/10/making-homemade-yogurt-in-rice-cooker.html

homemade yogurt

I make homemade yogurt all the time. A yogurt maker really isn't necessary. I use either my slow cooker or my rice cooker. The taste is phenomenal and as long as you don't use reactive surfaces, the yogurt will not need straining to get a thick texture. Basically, don't use metal - use glass or ceramic. http://insunee.blogspot.com/2011/10/m...

Making yogurt in a rice cooker?

I always use my rice cooker to make yogurt. I don't use a setting, I just heat the milk then keep it in the rice cooker wrapped in a blanket for insulation. You do the same with a slow cooker like a Crock pot. http://insunee.blogspot.com/2011/10/m...
