Making Yogurt in my Instant Pot

I love my Instant Pot?  One reason is yogurt making.  I decided to record how I do this today for my memory and for others that may want to try it.

My ingredients:

Whole Organic Milk, half gallon Good plain yogurt, about 2 heaping Tablespoons Optional:  1 capsule each, Culturelle and Bifido Biotics (or probiotics you like)
That's it!
Pour the milk in the pot
Press the Yogurt button, then press adjust and it should say, Boil.



(I know it's hard to see, but it says boil)
Now you can walk away.  Don't put the lid on.  It will stop when it has reached temperature.  Next is the hard part: WAIT
Let it cool down.  I let it cool to room temperature and don't give it much thought.  Others recommend checking the temp to between 110 and 115 degrees.  I don't worry about that.  I used to, but have found I often forgot to go back at exactly the right time, and since the pot heats it back to the right temp it still always works.  Then I can knit, watch tv, clean, whatever while I'm wait…
