Thanks for the tip. You inspired me to try it.

I didn't have a cheese making gizmo so I searched YouTube. It can be done by putting a regular strainer over a bowl, lining that with paper towels and dumping your yogurt in. Leave it ovenight to drain in the fridge. Here's one video, 2 minutes long.

(This lady used a giant coffee filter instead of paper towels, but lacking those flat type filters I went with paper towels)

Yes, success! It was easy to do and produced very thick Greek yogurt. By my calculation I saved about 20% in cost over buying Greek yogurt in the store. That won't make me rich, but its somehow satisfying to do it myself, knowing that there are no additives used.

Very nice addition to the low carb toolkit!
