My point was not about time or technick of making yougurt, simply the fact that the milk could have been saved, that's it.

But yes yougurt doesn't take that much time to make. I make mine from baked milk. I use crock pot. I fill in the morning before going to work, when I come home I add some yougurt. Though I have to admot last 2 or even 3 times yougurt was very thin, very runny. Not sure what I' did wrong.

Jet, how do you make your yougurt?

I heat the milk on the stove top to about 190-200 degrees, stirring occasionally. Then I take it off the heat and allow it to cool to about 110-120 degrees. Finally, I mix it with the starter yogurt in a pyrex bowl, wrap it with a towel and put the whole thing in my turned off electric oven with the light on. I leave it there overnight.

Mom used to make yogurt regularly because we used it a lot and Dad liked a dish of yogurt to finish off his dinner.

She would save a few spoonfuls of the yogurt for the starter of the next batch. If something went wrong, she'd send me to the store to buy some yogurt to be used as a starter.

That's what I do too.
