So far I've not been able to keep the Greek yogurt available long enough to do some ice cream experiments. Family loves it so much its gone within a half day of me making it.

So far my batch size is 600 grams (20 US fluid ounces) yogurt at a time*. This fills the largest strainer/bowl combo that I can easily fit into my fridge. Guess I'll have to expand the scale of my operation with some more serious (and space efficient) equipment and a bigger fridge :)

*600 grams because the only size of full fat yogurt available in my local discount store is in little single portion cups of 4 x 150 grams. I'd prefer to buy it in liter quantities but they only sell bigger sizes for low-fat and sugared yogurts. I guess the demand for the simple real yogurt is too low to offer choices. The irony is that despite the higher packaging cost (and packaging waste) those little cups are a lot cheaper per unit weight of yogurt than the jumbo sugar yogurts. That tells me something about profit margins.
