Because yogurt is a culture and you're inoculating the milk with the culture, you really only need about 1/4 cup of yogurt for a quart of milk. It's about the same as when you make creme fraiche. ...

how to determine oak stump mushrooms

Well, I wouldn't pick them unless you have someone who's a mushroomer and has picked them before. I think that's the best way to learn mushrooming is from somebody else. Even morels have "false"...
