Waste of time! I followed it step by step according to the recipe by it turn out to be a yogurt & after putting it in cheesecloth it turned to strained yogurt! And whole process of straining took almost 48 hours! I think just the old fashion way of boiling the milk and adding yogurt/lemon juice or vinegar is the best! Thank you!
