Yogurt maker - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Yogurt maker

    We just bought a yogurt maker. It sounds good for our daughters' smoothies, breakfast, frozen yogurt, fresh cheese, etc.

    Does anyone have experience with these things?

    Any advice is very welcome.

    Just a little off.
    My former colleague long time ago was quite upset that her just-bought yougurt maker didn't produce a yougurt.
    In fact, trying to make it work better, she was stirring content of the containers each 15 minutes.

      I used to make yogurt all the time. I did it in my oven at the lowest heat setting possible.

      Start with a good quality plain yogurt with natural cultures.

      My starting mixture was both canned and dried milk....varies to give you the solids content you prefer. I believe that you can use fresh milk but it needs to be boiled first.

      Give it a try....be patient and try again until you get the result you like.

      We used to mix in frozen fruit juice concentrate...orange, grape....

        Hey Jim,

        Sorry I missed that one. I went mid-tech and bought a Yogourmet machine from Amazon, and I'm really happy with it. It uses water and basically makes a warm bath for the yogurt to culture. I found Organic European Style yogurt from Trader Joe's, and used that as my starter. They add the cultures after the milk is pasteurized, and it all works really well.

        The new yogurt picked up the flavor from the starter. Very nice.

        Next steps include Greek Yogurt, home made Creme Fraiche and frozen yogurt. I can't help myself, I just bought an ice cream maker.

        These seem to be extensions of my bread making and pizza making habit -- you not only get a little more control over where your food comes from, but as you get better at doing it, the home made products really are better than anything you can buys.

        Next stop -- vanilla frozen yogurt. :-)

          I heard of someone using their WFO to make yogurt also. Have to find out exactly how.
