If a person prefers a stiffer yogurt consistency similar to certain store brands, a little unflavored gelatin can be added before the incubation starts. Although it is less healthy, flavored Jell-O powder can be mixed in a small amount of water and added. When my 7 kids were little, I would make yogurt in a five quart ice cream bucket placed in a couple of inches of water in my electric frying pan. I would play with the temperature dial on the simmer marks until it would keep the water at baby milk temperature before adding the yogurt filled container. I would then cover the pan with a folded towel to insulate the small amount of heat and go to bed. When I would make up, I would have five quarts of yogurt. I put it in many recipes and made yogurt laced smoothies for breakfast long before they were a fad. You can substitute yogurt for any recipe calling for buttermilk.
