By my calculation I saved about 20% in cost over buying Greek yogurt in the store.

Wow, you must be able to get some cheap regular yogurt! Dairy is expensive here, but I do live in a high cost of living area.

I tried it with the whole fat yogurt, and found for some reason that more of the solids went through the filter with the whey than the non fat did. That surprised me. I had about a 50% loss by volume, which would make the $6 quart of whole fat greek yogurt not too much of a splurge when I can find it, since I pay $3 for the whole fat regular yogurt.

I tried cheese cloth when I first started making yogurt cheese many years ago. Was not worth the hassle. Glad you found a way that works for you since it seems like the current filtration models are around $20.

Anyone try making their own frozen yogurt?
