Thanks for all the advice. As it turns out, I used one pint of milk, which I now believe to be half the amount of milk needed for the culturing. But it turned out okay. It has been my experience that even though the directions call for an incubation time of 4 to 4 1/2 hours with the dry culture powder, it takes me at least 8 hours of culturing time to get a firm product. I checked it every few hours past the first four hours setting, and it took 8 hours to properly culture, even using half the amount of milk called for.
