I remember being about 9 or 11 years old and making homemade yogurts. It took forever to make them, but the result was amazing.
The entire process was almost an adventure: we had to go and buy powder milk, milk and yougurt, them mix everything and cook in a light simmer, the pour into the glass yogurt cups and turn the yogurt maker on. Them the yogurt maker worked during the night, for about 8 hours and in the morning we had homemade yogurts.
The only problem is that the yogurts were still warm and we had to wait until the next day to eat them cool. I mean, we could eat them once they were made, but they tasted better when cool.
Tonight, my father and I have decided to try and make some more yogurts, after a 15-year break. Future postings on the result, due tomorrow at 6.30 a.m. (the yogurts, not my feedback).
(I am sorry, but I don't have any pictures of my yogurt maker. Maybe in the furture...)
update: for some reason, I can't seem to be able to separate the paragraphs, which is annoying.
