a good tip is that u put ure pinky finger inside the milk if u are able to hold it there to the count of ten but no longer than 10 then it is time to add the yogurt... also u only put it in cloth if u are making labneh but dont do this for laban

also u need to strain after taking out of the refrigerator.....for about 8 hours in a cloth bag or strainer with paper towels on bottom and on top to absorb liquids
