    I made them in the past NG, you will need yoghurt live culture, fresh milk and constant heat. I don't know where and what brand of live culture can you get in the UK for starting them, sorry.
    If you you have them, boil your fresh milk,let it cool to around 28 C or so, add live culture with ratio of 1 cup culture : 5 to 8 cups of milk. Let them ferment in constant warm temp (I put mine close to the heating but don't know the exact temperature). Yoghurt is ready around 8 hours later. After it is ready, you can keep it in the fridge for 3 days or so.
    I grow, I pick, I eat ...

    Not sure if you really want something more traditional but I really like my Easi Yo yogurt maker:

    Welcome to Easiyo
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey" he said "Grab your things
    I've come to take you home."

    If you use live yoghourt, and warm milk you can actually "make" it in a vacuum flask as this will keep it at the right temperature.

    Default easi yo + simply yogurt

    Have tried both of these and would recommend - easy to make and 1 litre of yogurt ready in about 8 hours - choices of flavours in both ranges. Good luck

    I make yoghurt the easy way with 900 mL UHT milk (no need to heat), 2 tablespoons of milk powder and 1 teaspoon of live yoghurt (preferably using the last lot you made) and then leave overnight in a yoghurt maker. I like mine with maple syrup or honey.

    I make yoghurt every few days using an electric Yoghurt maker from Lakeland its really easy to use. I use fresh milk so have to sterilise it first, let it cool to 110f then add a tablespoon of yoghurt from the last batch. It gets left in the yog maker for 5 or 6 hours and is yum on my morning muesli.
